We are having a wonderful time here in Bangalore at the “Image of Hope” retreat and praise God for all He is doing! It has been one year since our last “Image of Hope” conference for anti-trafficking workers. As we mentioned in our last post, their ministry is grueling, and the burnout rate in their line of work is high. It is absolutely essential that they have times to get away and refresh themselves in the Lord. The women have expressed how that first conference impacted them throughout the whole year. Many took the concepts they learned and shared them in different contexts. They have been looking forward with anticipation to our time together this year.
Our time together has truly been rewarding — and fun, as you can see from the photo! Today Diane opened with a heartwarming devotion and Peggy delivered a powerful message on Moses. The women were inspired and renewed. Some of the women have really opened up and shared from their hearts with us. We plan to end the night with dancing to the Lord and having some fun, and we will celebrate tomorrow with interpreting verses through dance, skits, and songs. As the retreat concludes, please pray that the women will experience renewal and an even deeper relationship with the Lord.
We love you and are thankful for your prayers!
Michelle, Diane, and Peggy
