A record 52 women attended a women’s retreat at Lake Lucerne Camp on March 31 – April 2. Retreat organizer Bonnie Clement said, “We learned to Delight in His Word as we read it during devotions and Bible Study. We trusted it as we learned from Beekeeper Julie what is happening to the bees, and how we can help. We took notice of it as Kelly told what a bee’s presence can mean. We rejoiced in it as Linda showed us how to make simple flower arrangements from God’s Garden. We longed for it as Melody shared delicious recipes. We were mindful of it through our movement. We praised it as Shelly showed us how to make sweet chime music. We found joy in it as we stamped cards with Joan. And we shared it as we spent time with old friends and made new ones.” One attendee said what she liked best was “the fellowship, massages, the amount of free time to just enjoy the camp and bond with new friends.” Next year’s retreat will be held April 27-29, 2018.
