"Retreats give us an opportunity to really seek the Lord--to fall on our faces and really cry out to God for our children, our families, and our church. I hope that if they came with their problems, that they left them here, that they leave them here, that they get filled with God's presence and they take that home with them" -Anna C., Wichita, KS
