2016 Northern Interdenominational Ladies and Teens Christian Retreat!

 37th Annual Northern Interdenominational Ladies and Teens Christian Retreat!

February 26th to February 28th, 2016, the 37th Annual Northern Interdenominational Ladies and Teens Christian Retreat will take place in Timmons Ontario., a couple of hours south of us in Fauquier, Ontario. I was thrilled to see the title "Interdenominational" verses "Non-denominational", it is a term that has spoken to my heart for many years.
This post contains prayer requests for the conference and a bit about the speaker, and topic of the conference.

Has God Blessed you with the opportunity to attend the 37th Annual Northern Interdenominational Ladies and Teens Christian Retreat in Timmons Ontario.?

2016 Northern Interdenominational Ladies and Teens Christian Retreat :Prayer Requests 

Please lift up the speaker and all the women attendees in prayer. Mary- Lue just arrived this morning at 4 am after facing numerous cancelled flights. She must have a very important message to be coming under such strong attack!
The Lord is bringing many women of God together for this conference. Please lift them up in prayer and ask God will speak to their hearts and help them return safely to their communities re-energized with passion and vision for sharing God's Word with others.
There are two women at the Smooth Rock Falls Bethel Pentecostal Church who would love to attend this conference. Please pray for them to get a ride to the conference in Timmons and back.
Since we just found out about the retreat, and will need an oil change before we go anywhere, unless there is a miracle, we will be preparing to welcome potential travellers here at our home in the Hôtel Dieu for Women Fauquier, Ontario. Please pray for God's guidance and discernment and for God to help us prepare a welcoming place for weary travellers.
Thanks for reading! Let's keep in touch!
