Learn from Me

Jul 14, 2022

In Matthew 14 Jesus withdraws after hearing the hard news about John’s death.  This is followed by healing and sending his disciples to feed the five thousand.  Christ retreats again and afterwards shows his disciples how God can do the impossible.  In reflecting on this chapter, we see that retreating/ withdrawing is just as important and as much a part of ministry as teaching, giving, and healing are.  We therefore see the importance of scheduling in retreats as we begin our Great Commission Food Initiative.

A supporter has generously offered his cabin for us to host retreats over the summer.  We are planning retreats for staff and their families, alumni, mentor/ mentees and our women’s program.  We are also planning other ways for our participants to recharge which include fishing, gardening, baseball games, worship concerts, etc.  We are thankful for this season to retreat, reflect and praise God for the tremendous growth and changed lives he has brought about through your support.

“Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.  Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” Matthew 11:28-29
