Philippians 1:3-4 I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy.

Please lift up the attendees and the retreat volunteers in your prayers today.

Dear Heavenly Father,

One of the last elements of the retreats will be the days the volunteers spend remembering and sharing stories of what you did in and through them and the attendees during the retreats. Praise and honor to you for all you have done to bless and encourage each woman—those who served and those who came to be served. Please help the volunteers to debrief well with each other and begin their preparations to re-enter real life at home. May they know how to share what they’ve experienced with their friends and family and those who generously prayed and gave so they could serve at the retreats.

In Jesus Name,

Amen

About the author

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."
