Montana Women Give and Get Blessing

January 01, 2004 | Shirley Bilbro

Montana's 13th Christian Women's Retreat brought 170 ladies from around and outside the Northwest to Glacier Bible Camp in September for an opportunity to commune with God in nature through singing, prayer, sharing testimonies of God's grace and goodness, and listening to meetings.

The retreat offered three workshops on family finances, Sabbath and sharing situations with God. Sabbath afternoon activities included a boat ride on Lake McDonald and hiking in Glacier Park. Many felt spiritually uplifted and able to cope with their day-to-day lives in a more positive way, using Christ as their pattern.

The lodge featured private bathrooms, an elevator and a temporary Adventist Book Center for the ladies to explore books, music and more.

The women came to the retreat for a blessing, and in turn became a blessing by donating a new stove and range for the Mt. Ellis Academy kitchen.
