Women's retreat

About 20 women showed up last Wednesday for the Sixth Annual Women's Retreat in Christopher Creek.

Bianca Malmin decorated the place with fall colors and beautiful centerpieces that were given away through a drawing. All the women brought their favorite salad to share along with some wonderful fellowship.

Donna Adams spoke about grace. Even though Donna has lost her eyesight, she has not lost her gift to teach. She has been teaching for 40 years now and every time she speaks, it is more interesting and inspirational.

Joy Ruetz spoke of her mission teaching in Japan. It makes you appreciate the things we have in this country after you realize what people have in other countries.

Teresa Purtee has been sick with pneumonia and could not be there this year. She was sadly missed and we want to keep her in our thoughts and prayers.

It was a wonderful time of fellowship and the women are looking forward to the next one.
