And then, at the end of March, I (Wendi) was able to participate in our TCKompas (JV Slovakia) Ladies' Retreat. Our TCKompas team includes 17 women who work together to carry-out the ministry of Josiah Venture in Slovakia. Most of the time the ministries are planned and implemented by the whole team of both men of women, both Slovaks and Americans. But this time just the women met, to have a time of rest and relaxation, to come together in worship and fellowship, and to bond our team of women. We spent 3 days together in a cabin in the mountains, laughing, playing games, eating, drinking coffee, praying, worshiping our Savior, learning together how our Lord wants us to rest in Him in all areas of our busy lives, and enjoying times of good conversation and friendships. Some of us spent an afternoon swimming in the local thermal pools, while the rest enjoyed an adventurous horse-back ride in the snow! I am quite thankful for all of these women on our team, and loved the opportunity that God gave me to enjoy this retreat with them!
|Here we are, enjoying the unexpected snow in the mountains|
|Sharing in a time of teaching from the Word|
about the rest in Him that God desires us to enjoy
|Yes, we enjoyed our food, our coffee |
and relaxing by the fireplace!
|And the few brave ones who |
embarked on the snowy trail ride
|What a beautiful place to rejuvenate and|
bond together with the team of women that
God has formed in Slovakia!
