Women's Retreat At Lake Lucerne

27 women from around the WI Conference spent a wonderful weekend at Lake Lucerne Camp & Retreat Center. We renewed friendships and made new friends as we gathered together for 3 days and 2 nights filled with activities. There was gratitude in the abundant blessings God has lavished on us, comfort in the blessing of His presence in times of trial, and joy in the sharing of our blessings with others. We enjoyed walks in the rain in awe of God's creation and others baked delicious treats. We made colorful garments, learned the Lord's Prayer in American Sign Language, and heard about the healing power of plants. We shared prayer, song, worship and devotions throughout the weekend. Our UMC camps are a wonderful blessing. -Submitted by Bonnie Clement
