A sacred moment where you meet God

"There are sacred moments in our lives when we meet God at the mountain top.  Pilgrimage is one such moment, and it prepares us for our work in the valley below."

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!

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,

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."

I didn't realize I was part of God's plan

"I have been a Christian since I was eleven. But until I attended a Pilgrimage weekend, I didn't realize I was part of God's plan - me personally."

It prepared me for a rougher road...

It prepared me for a rougher road ahead and taught me to give some of my load to God and others who I can trust.
