I have felt the arms of our Lord holding me up

"Keep asking your friends to come. It took my sponsor asking from MPP #2 through #15 to get me to say yes. I knew I should go, but felt that other things I was involved in were more important --- how stupid of me   Nothing is more important than growing your relationship with God.  Since MPP #15, I have worked weekends and accepted Rector when asked. Life has been a roller coaster, but I have felt the arms of our Lord holding me up --- What a feeling!  We must be still and listen and MPP weekends give you the time."

...it became something that I'd known in my head, to knowing that it was now in my heart!

"Thankfulness always comes to me first. I am thankful for those of you who prayed for me, who wrote encouraging words and to God for the blessed opportunity to get to experience the Pilgramage.

For me, it was a profound realization that most of all of my life I have learned and have come to know God. Going through this experience it became something that I'd known in my head, to knowing that it was now in my heart!

The new friends and "old" friends both guests and team members along with people I don't even know-what a fellowship in the MPP! What a wonderful feeling!

I highly recommend that you go! Maybe the fall won't work for you but definitely the spring...just do it for you! Do it for God! I will pray to our God that He will open your heart to this beautiful opportunity!

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."

A tangible sense of community, of belonging

"One life-changing thing I brought home from my Pilgrimage was a tangible sense of community, of belonging. For just as I love because God first loved me, and forgive because He has forgiven me – 'community' was given to me and now I have experienced what that means, I am able to extend it to others."
