Women’s Day Out (WDO) is an outreach to busy women that allows them to attend one day seminars to relax, refresh, and enhance their walk with the Lord. This past year, many women participated in the mini Bible studies that inspired, enhanced, and enlarged their spiritual growth in the Lord. In February, 14 women attended the first of this years mini-retreats with the seminar entitled “God’s Waiting Room”. Meeting other Christian women, enjoying breakfast in the garden, a specially prepared lunch, and a relaxing afternoon English tea all work together to help women go back to their everyday lives with new tools to uplift their lives and accomplish what God has called them to do
We all live busy lives. It’s much easier to give of ourselves to others from an overflow rather than scraping the bottom of the barrel. Take a day for yourself to be with the Lord, and let the Word of God refresh your life..
|For those who do not know about the hospitality ministry of God’s Rest, this letter will be an introduction. For those who have been guests of the ministry and supported this effort of lifting up the body of Christ, this will be a review of the last year and a look at the months to come.
Last year was a great year for God’s Rest (GR), and we give God all the glory for the lives that were touched and refreshed in the Holy Spirit . Again, we were blessed to meet so many different Christians from as far away as Pakistan and Ethiopia, and as near as our own back yard. GR provided a home for evacuees from hurricane Rita, a haven for weary missionaries, and provided a peaceful place for friends and family to say goodbye to a wonderful mother and grandmother in the gardens all aglow with little white lights. Every year, we are asked to enlarge our borders by doing something new that we haven’t supplied before. It’s a blessing to the ministry to help those who come forward with a new need that we may be able to supply; these ideas and requests makes a dynamic ministry, and we welcome them! We are always open to the needs of God’s people, and if possible we try to meet those needs in whatever way possible.
This year, God’s Rest is taking the Women’s Day Out Seminars to several different venues. If your church, women’s group, or Bible study class would like a day of rest, wonderful fellowship, and great food for the soul as well as the body, reserve a day at the Humble location. If you desire to have Trish bring a Women’s Day Out teaching to your location of choice, we are making that available. Most topics take a minimum of four hours, but can be condensed to meet your needs.
