My experiences at MPP will stay with me the rest of my life
My experiences at MPP will stay with me the rest of my life. The Holy Spirit soared through my body and heart to make me His servant here on earth before I go home to be with Him in heaven. From the moment I arrived until I left, I was treated with love and an understanding that is indescribable. I would encourage everyone to attend an MMP to grow in your faith and to know that you are special in God's eyes. God is good!
"I needed to be completely emptied to get filled up again."
But then an amazing thing happens...
To me it was a wonderful opportunity to serve. You completely become the hands, feet, and heart of Christ. You give and serve freely - expecting nothing in return. But then an amazing thing happens - through this experience it is YOU who are blessed! OUR GOD IS AN AWESOME GOD!
One of the best decisions I have ever made
I was a little hesitant, to say the least, about my first Pilgrimage experience. I finally agreed to go, and it was one of the best decisions I have ever made. What I found through the Pilgrimage was a communal encounter with Christ. Just what I was yearning for. The weekend was intentional; every part planned with a purpose, which enriched the experience and added meaning to my life. I have attended several Pilgrimages since, and I encounter Christ through everyone each time. That's why I keep coming back!
And we had fun...
It's like a retreat, but it is not a retreat. It was a short course in Chrisitanity. And we had fun!
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,
I left renewed....
Pilgrimge rescued me from a spiral of depression brought on by my personal problems; I left renewed with the conviction that God still has great plans for me.
A profound time...
A profound time of spiritual growth and fellowship
