Pilgrimage was a time of profound peace...

Pilgrimage was a time of profound peace for me.  I experienced more love and grace than within all of my life combined.  I was able to spend quality time in God's presence and get away from the rest of the world.  I highly recommend it for everyone.

a time of reflection and renewal

"Pilgrimage  weekend was a time for reflection and renewal of my spiritual life.  It was a time to focus in my life and see how God has been by my side through the years.  His love and grace were so evident."

A life changing experience

MPP is a life changing experience...through the power of God the MPP team lead me back to the hand of Jesus Christ who walks with me daily and guides my path.

It's a powerful time because God always shows up

Being part of team on a pilgrimage is like being part of a huge family where we get together twice a year to serve Jesus together. The family keeps growing and I am blessed by the new lives that I have the privilege of interacting with at the beautiful setting of Camp Henry. It's a powerful time because God always shows up. His Spirit is felt by me as I serve my fellow team members and pilgrims. When I miss a pilgrimage, it almost feels like I missed a family reunion.

I needed...

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

A profound time...

A profound time of spiritual growth and fellowship

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."

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,
