Men's and Women's Retreats


The theme of the Women's retreat last weekend was Identity, Intimacy and Impact. It was an incredible opportunity for the women involved in our ministry to reflect on why they were created and how their intimacy with God affects their intimacy with others.

Pray that these women would continue to be changed daily by God's love for them, His plan for their lives and the opportuniities they have to reflect God's love into the lives of others. Posted by Picasa


Above is a picture of some of the men who participated in the Wild at Heart men's retreat last weekend. Flavio said, "It is crucial is for me and other men to understand what it means to be a man." The Brazilian culture tends to be either very macho or very passive as far as the men are concerned. So this retreat was a step forward in getting some of these men to think about their identity in Christ and how their Heavenly Father views them.

Pray for these men to continue to grow in the gospel and for all of Brazil to be impacted by their lives. Posted by Picasa

We'll be at a staff training time for the next few days with Jim Downing, former Deputy President and Chairman of the Board of the Navigators Ministry. We'll also be joined by Ken and Theresa Currie. Ken is the director of Campus Outreach Minneapolis. Pray for our hearts to be renewed and our eyes to be fixed on the One who is our Hope.

Hi! I'm from Carrollton and currently am living in Rio. I saw Rhonda Rogers just before Anna left to come stay with you guys and I got your blog address from Ben Gallant, who I know from Birmingham. Small world, huh?

Love reading this blog! Always reminds me of a life-changing summer, and makes me feel not quite so disconnected from everything down there.

Heard the staff fellowship/training went well! Talk to you guys soon!
