“We can’t fully express how meaningful this time away has been for us. Thank you for providing this amazing setting for us to be away from the stresses of ministry, noise and interruptions at home and each take a break from the distractions of social media (our Wi-Fi didn’t provide internet regularly -that was okay!). The timing of our visit was clearly evidence of God’s loving hand as the very night before I met with our deacon board and was given a six month notice to leave our ministry (due to a combination of reduction of giving during COVID and difference in philosophy of ministry). We needed this opportunity to talk, cry, pray, read the scripture and really have concentrated time to do careful soul searching to consider what could or couldn’t have been done differently. Be Still provided us with that and it may not have actually been able to happen at home with the kids and other constant ministry interruptions. Thank you for the special care you have put in all the details: the amazing cabins, the beautiful décor, the incredibly comfortable mattress, the plush and impeccably clean towels and linens, the basket of treats and coffee selections (we were humbled to receive this all as a gift). It felt like we were in a whole other world than the “nightmare” we currently live in.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! May God continue to bless you and your family for the sacrifices you have made and continue to make to keep this ministry a healing, refreshing balm to weary workers of God’s church. We will pray for your ministry.” ~D&JH
