Psalm 34:3 – Glorify the LORD with me; let us exalt His name together.

 

Today, please pray for retreat attendees Jodi, Stacy and Sylvia as well as retreat staff, Jenn (Thrive), Kari and Diane (volunteers).

 

Heavenly Father, thank you for the opportunity to serve you – you alone are worthy, and our hearts exalt together to worship you with our service. As the Retreat Volunteer Team individuals make arrangements for their time away from home and family and life’s demands, we pray for a sense of your provision for the things that tend to weigh most heavily in our thoughts and in our hearts – those things that can distract us from serving you well. As both the volunteer team and the attendees make travel plans to attend the retreat from all over North America, we ask that you might arrange work and family schedules for those days away, and that we would see your gracious hand in providing that time of retreat, set aside for the attendees to be encouraged, refreshed and fed by you. Help us to see you and follow you well, as we commit our ways and plans to you.

 

In Jesus’ Name,

Amen

As a former missionary and current pastor's wife, Jill thrives when she is able to come alongside missionaries. Her ministry with PD Ministries and Thrive allows Jill to use her organizational and leadership skills as well as her flair for beauty to encourage missionary women. Jill loves to get away with her husband to mountain top retreats and to visit her far-away grandchildren. Her adventurous spirit has taken her para sailing, scuba diving, she has eaten strange foods like scorpions and crickets, and traversed the Amazon's Chanchamayo River. Her creativity shows itself in her pottery and her spirit is renewed by reading, keeping a quiet heart, and coming alongside others as a teacher, coach, mentor and friend. She says, " I get ecstatic watching God speak in specific situations and issues through His Word and resolve challenges in a way that makes it clear HE's at work! It is exciting to watch His Word literally come alive in the midst of very real concerns."
