Nueva Mujer Nicaragua Women Retreat
This past weekend we had our third Nueva Mujer women’s retreat. Nueva Mujer, our women’s ministry organizes a retreat every two years. Every time it seems to be getting better and better. Myra and the other coordinators of the women’s ministry have been working very tirelessly this past year getting everything ready and you could tell by the quality of the conference. The past few months there have been fund raisers, food sales and other events to raise money to send as many ladies to the conference. The avocado tree in our yard has even helped out. The avocado tree produces more than we can eat. We donated buckets full of avocados to a lady in the church who was able to sell them and helped three women go the conference.
The conference itself flowed smoothly without any glitches. What a BLESSING! One of the most exciting parts of the conference was seeing the young ladies really get involved and excited about the conference. This year we had the most young women attend the conference and they added something extra something to make it a memorable conference. There were also women who came from our Verbo churches around the country. Our church in Puerto Cabezas sent over 50 ladies. It was a great opportunity for ladies in different churches to get to know each other.
Several women, young and old got baptized at the conference.
The speakers were absolutely awesome. They came prepared with word that spoke into the lives of the women at the conference. All the women left the conference very challenged. We had our daughter Aimee as one of the speakers but also this year she came down with Idalid, her sister in-
Now we’re looking forward to the following conference in 2015.
