Irrigon Women's Group Receives Award

The Irrigon (Ore.) Church group was recently awarded a plaque for having the largest number of women, 19 in all, attending the 2007 women's retreat at Camp MiVoden.

Even though the church is small, with an average of 40 to 50 members, the group has grown each year, primarily because of Shirlene Stahl's conviction that every woman should experience the blessings of the weekend. A few years ago, Stahl, and other church women began inviting non-members. Though not as a direct result, three women have been baptized in the months following their experience at the retreat.

Among those attending this year were three mother-daughter teams and one sister team.
