We were blessed to provide a relaxing and refreshing weekend to over 50 women this past weekend. Kecia Stroot’s message to “Love God, Love People, Period.” helped to recenter our thinking and fit within our 2011 summer theme of “Converge.” With a forecast of rainy weather, our appreciation grew for the incredible sunshine and warmth that God provided, even to the point of some women swimming and tubing.
In past years, the women’s auctions have raised between $3000- 5000. However, this year the women took a GIGANTIC step of faith in their giving and blessed Bluewater’s ministry by giving $10,155. Incredibly, with the gifts that were given before the women’s retreat of $15,000, we have already made our goal for the Matching Gift of $25,000. Thank you for giving in an inspirational way and helping to reduce our debt from $70,000 to $20,000 before the summer had hardly begun.
May God continue to bless you as you have blessed us.
