Thank you so much for the beautiful way you ministered to all the
ladies at the Bridging the Gap Retreat. We have been so blessed!
"The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make His face to shine
upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn His face towards
you and give you peace." Numbers 6:24-26. The grace of our Lord
Jesus Christ be with you all.
On behalf of the Leadership Team and all the ladies,
- Jeanette Lane
I'm not sure I have anything to add to the lists of praise for the
privilege of being here for our 2006 WCBC Ladies Retreat. However
- here goes.
After spending 5 previous weekends here and each one a time of
good memories, what can I say. Many of the ladies, including
myself, feel it just gets better each year.
#1 - You and your staff make us feel welcome, special guests and
#2 - We know what to expect when we get here so we're comfortable.
#3 - Everyone feels that she is in a very special place and God
seems so close.
#4 - It is very serene and safe for us.
#5 - We're feeling more bonded as "sisters in Christ" and loved.
- Janice Saunders (GAP team)
What an awesome place. Thank you for all you do to make us so
comfortable and provide for all our needs. We are always anxious
to come and never ready to leave.
A special thanks to your staff leader for all he does and to all the staff.
Wonderful to sit with staff and share.
All 3 years have been so encouraging and challenging. Food is
Blessings on the ministry.
- Suzanne Colborne
A huge thank you to the team for putting on another
fantastic retreat experience. The food is incredible, the setting
is so lovely and tranquil. The staff are so friendly and
accommodating. We don't want to leave so soon on Sunday. Can't we
stay just a little longer?!? This place is highly recommened!
- Jennete Somerville
I appreciate and am so thankful for your servants hearts that are
so evident in all that you do for us. It is truly a wonderful time
away to grow and be refreshed.
I would like to see us here on a long weekend or if it were
possible to remain on the grounds for Sunday afternoon (even if we
didn't have access to the cabins) in order to continue in the
relaxation made as opposed to the rush, rush attitude before
heading home to the rush, rush. Thank you!
They are doing a fabulous job!
Food and service is awesome
The setting is wonderful - God's
beauty surrounds us
All the staff is cheerful and helpful
The teaching and music ministry a
Rooms comfortable, beds comfortable.
Loved the fireplace!
The food incredible!!! Baking a treat
appreciated, the generous portions of fresh fruit.
Thank you for a wonderful weekend. May
God continue to bless your ministry. Going home refreshed...
I would not miss this experience for anything. The rekindling of
desire to seek after God is so real, so uncluttered. The majesty
of God is so apparent. Thank you for dedicating your lives to this
important ministry and providing this place for us. God is here.
God is Love. God surprises us with more than we could imagine and
we leave here inspired - and even feeling beautiful! Wow.
- Joyce Lindberg
You demonstrate the heart of Jesus to us in so many ways:
Whenever we have requested something
you have been accommodating and met it and even more ie. We were
stunned when we say what you did to provide a higher bed for us.
As a leadership team we have gleaned so much from your servant
- Lorri Beekley
Wonderful food! Fresh fruits, fresh
baking, fresh veggies, excellent, nice flowers, greaet BBQed
Appreciate bedding being available
It is a photographer's dream!
Beautiful grounds and trails
Nothing quite like the singing of the
many birds, the hues of green in the forests, the quiet of the
walking trails, the smells of all that God has provided in His
bounteous nature here, the glistening of the water, the sunrises
and sunsets reflected on the mountaintops, the stars and stars
and stars! It all makes you more aware of the wonder of God!
- Lorraine McInead
I don't really have any input!
Everything was great! Everyone very friendly and welcoming! The
food excellent as always! The people/staff supply everything we
need to enjoy our stay here! Well maybe it would be nice to have a
little more group time to chat with them (the staff) and to get to
know them better. Time always seems to go by too fast! Thank you
for the fun time on the water! Thank you very much for
See you next year.
Staff - I don't have any new suggestions for you. As you have
thoughtfully covered so many of our needs already. Keep on doing
what you are doing and God will surely bless your efforts.
Having fellowship with other Christian women like this is
wonderful and a real blessing. I felt God opened a lot of doors
for me by talking with other women and hearing the speaking on
Philippians. Thank you.
Thank you for a wonderful weekend.
Excellent as always. The graciousness
of all the staff/students consistently astounds and impresses me.
I have been privileged to stay here on many occasions and can feel
the peace of the Lord's presence every time I arrive.
- Sarah Havge
You and all those at Capernwray have spoiled us royally. We do
feel Daughters of the King after such a beautiful weekend! You
went far beyond the things we requested and the things we
requested were done so well, like Marian's bed having to be made
higher so she could attend. Marian is on our team and was so
blessed to have her bed at a perfect height for her! You may want
to keep that extension for next year. Unless she has gone to be
with the Lord she will want to be there again.
Marlene's speaking was excellent and just what we needed to hear
and such a good object lesion with her suitcase. If I get a chance
before I leave I will send her a "Thank you" too. The worship was
right on and fitted so well with the message. It was also
wonderful to have Shout to the North, as we requested.
We do feel
we have been through the fire and are in a healing place, as a
fellowship. Praise God! Thank you Christine and team. So many
ladies are still in that fire place in their lives and
relationships and need the body of Christ to come along side. What
a blessing it was for you to minister to us all without you
knowing a thing about our lives. God is good all the time.
The food was delicious!! We all appreciated the basket of fruit
available all the time throughout the retreat. Ladies love fruit!
Lots of vegetables were such a blessing too. High Tea was AWESOME!
We didn't expect you to go to such a variety. What fun that was!
The ladies were so touched by your thoughtfulness as there was
something for everyone, even if you couldn't eat sweets.
Andy. (Hope I have your name right). You seem to know ladies
tastes well. Thank you too, for trying to accommodate each medical
allergy with grace.
The Lord bless you and keep you,
With warm affection in Him,
