Annual Women’s Retreat in Ensenada

11 Jul

At the Ticalli Ranch in San Antonio de las Minas, 17 women gathered July 8-10 for the 2011 Ensenada Women’s Retreat.  Friends from Bakersfield, Santa Barbara, San Diego, Tijuana and Ensenada all shared a restful and refreshing weekend learning about God’s Amazing Grace, the theme of the retreat taught by our dear friend and mentor, Jo Wester.

In addition to the studies some of the activities the women enjoyed  were: gathering in small groups, an outdoor lunch at Ochento’s Pizzas, a midnight excursion on the ranch playground, fellowship at meal times, and the beauty and tranquility of the surroundings.

All the women left refreshed, encouraged, and challenged to put into practice what we learned during the weekend.  We closed the time by praying for one another and sharing communion together.  As we hugged and said our goodbyes, it was with anticipation of the next time that we can be together to renew friendships and continue our journey of faith together.

The Tijuana group added a lot of depth and fun to the weekend

Please pray for these women as they are now back home that they would be able to live in the reality of God’s Grace and share it with others.  Likewise, please pray for Karen and Lucy as they lead the women in Ensenada and seek ways to help them to continue to grow in their faith in Jesus.

Please pray for the women of Mexico
