People came from all over the world to enjoy fellowship with one another! It was refreshing to be in the presence of the Lord with friends. Reinhold & Elsie Herms did an amazing job leading us in worship and ushering in the Spirit of God. Werner Schulz, from Australia, admirably stepped in as our English speaker. Werner led us into the presence of God through the teaching of His Word. Our prayers go our to Raymond Rueb and his wife as they could not attend as the speakers due to poor health.
The German and English Sermons were packed with talent and truth. The Schulz' and the Herms' did several quartettes, Allen Jackson entertained with lively solos, and the very talented Orchestra played daily! The Couch's did a wonderful Sign Language song on the last night that seemed to break through spiritual barriers.
Check out the ministries that were represented at the retreat:
- Werner Schulz: Kingsway Christian Fellowship

This year we also had some new activities for Families, Teams, and Kids! We had several people come out for these activities, but the most popular were the train ride, corn hole, a walk in the woods, and the Disc Golf set up.
We enjoyed those who were able to make it out this year, and we will be praying for those who couldn't attend. You were missed. Here's to next year!
