The Pilgrimage experience continues to resonate in my life

"The care provided by the team was a deeply touching demonstration of how Grace flows into our lives. I also experienced how prayer can be answered in unexpected ways at unexpected times and in unexpected places. The Pilgrimage experience continues to resonate in my life."

Gave me an opportunity to listen to God

"Attending a Pilgrimage weekend gave me an opportunity to listen to God;  an opportunity to have an open heart and mind. It was inspiring to have God reveal to me where He had been guiding me and where He planned for us (He and I) to go in the future.  If you are going to live a purpose driven life, you better know what the purpose is."

There is now more expectancy...

It is a time to let the Scriptures take you in unexpected ways.  There is now more expectancy in my Christian life.

A sense of belonging...

It gave me a sense of belonging to the Lord and to His family.

I needed...

"I needed to be completely emptied to get filled up again."

How wonderful God is....

After 31 years as a Christian it still impacted me and refreshed my faith showing me how wonderful God is.

A changing point in my life...

It was a changing point in my life, and I felt a "peace" that I hadn't felt in 20 years.

I don't want the feeling to end

"We were told during our weekend to remember that upon reentering our normal lives the world hadn't changed but we had.  Oh, how true!  Monday morning I woke up and the sky looked bluer, the grass greener, and the trees in fuller bloom.  I was so aware of how awesome God's creation is.

Renewal is a good word to try to describe the weekend for me.  I just didn't realize how empty my glass had become and, after having time to reflect, I felt like I am full again.  I would love for everyone to experience a Pilgrimage and be able to come back feeling the way I felt.  I don't want the feeling to end.  I know I am a better wife, mother, friend, etc. because of my Pilgrimage weekend.   It is so amazing to be immersed in God's presence for those 72 hours and to look around and see His love and understanding in others.
Thank you to all of those who served this weekend.  What a gift you shared with me and one that I can't wait to share with others."

God loves you and so do I,
