It's 3 days that I would recommend to everyone who wants to...

From the moment I arrived I could say that it was not only very organized, but people were very friendly.  Little did I know then that those friendly faces would turn out to be good friends.  The spiritual element was there from the beginning and grew to fill each of us throughout the weekend.  It's 3 days that I would recommend to everyone who wants to grow in faith, make new friends and eat good food.

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."

You will experience God's love for you, personally

God's love is poured out in so many ways all throughout the weekend. You will experience God's love for you, personally, and learn how you fit in to God's larger purposes and plan as well as how you can participate in God's mission here on earth.

I needed...

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

There was always a question about "WHY?" Pilgrimage answered that question

"I have always believed in God, but there was always a question about "WHY?"  Pilgrimage answered that question and having gone through a Pilgrimage weekend, I have renewed my faith experience and a new awareness in God and his power.  If you are struggling with your faith or need to reconnect with God, Pilgrimage is the place.  If you feel a need to increase your faith, Pilgrimage is the place.  You will be so enriched by the experience, you will want to Pass It On to others and be one of God's Servants."

Receiving a Gift That I Could Not Keep to Myself

In February of 2005, I was given the incredible gift of being able to attend Pilgrimage in North Carolina:  NCPP #62. ...  Whenever we have been given such a gift, we cannot but want others to experience Pilgrimage.  To do so has involved...

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,

You will never have a better experience in learning what it means to give yourself to others

"It was a privilege to serve on the team for MPP #6. Our dear Lord and Savior takes your breath away doesn't He? My prayer is that more and more people will have the privilege to attend these weekends because you truly get a sense of a servant's heart!

I pray that our guests will want to come back and work next spring. I promise you, you will never have a better experience in learning what it means to give yourself to others. You may think that the team did a lot of work and got nothing out of it like you did, but I am a living testimony to God that as a team member, I truly received His Grace through serving you."

God Loves You and So Do I,
