Wow..I dont really know where to begin..I had such an amazing, life changing experience this past weekend. But not just within the retreat but being in the presence of the KT family for the past month-period. I have never endured so much love,trust,genuine compassion and most importantly the presence of the Lord.I am thankful and I feel myself growing but as Miss Anita said-there has to be some pruning/cutting first to blossom.....My God.....Peace and LovePrecious
Well, like my sisters have stated here,there is no way to tell it all! On a practical note, I am a jewelry lover and thanks to Ms. Precious sharing her marvelous gift with us, I will be making some of my own jewelry! Creating something so beautiful with your own hands gives a sense of accomplishment that's awesome (not to mention cost effective!) We had so much fun chatting and sharing at the same time. Spiritually, Pastor Nita...where do I start?? I'll just say "I was designed - to be a blossoming vine!" Life changing experience.
I,AM MOTHER MCMULLEN OF A. C. F.CHURCH,THE BLOSSOMING VINES RETREAT. WAS WHAT I NEEDED REJUVENATE MY SPIRIT,GOD WERE IN THE MIST HE MET US THERE AT I EVERY NEED,IT WAS AWESOME I ,HAVE NOT BEEN THE SAME,THANK YOU PASTOR SONIA,MAMA SHIRLEY,
Corporately, God really met us where we were and moved in a powerful way at the Blossoming Vines Retreat. Personally, God refreshed my spirit and gave me strength to move forward in things that are of Him. My first retreat ever and thanks to God showing up and showing out, it won't be my last!:)
The retreat was just what the Doctor ordered for every part of my being. There are still no Words to express the experience I had with God and all the love from the ladies. My mind and spirit has been restored and I will always treasure in my heart the new relationships that was developed, the miracalous move of God, and the Word of God from Pastor Nita. I am still filled to the brim with the new wine that was released in me. God is amazing! I thank God for the Visionary (Pastor Sonia) who had the awesome faith to move forward and trust God that he would do exceedingly and abundantly above all that we could ask or think. Stephanie R
A place called there, a place called there, is where my father met me to teach me who I am. The Blossom Vines Retreat is a place where God met me. I formed lasting relationships with beautiful women of God. God replenished me! I was sick with allergies. I needed the rest and quite time. One of the young ladies nurtured me back to health with her motherly love and a warm blanket, which brought tears to my eyes b/c I was filling so badly. Even though I felt so bad I pressed my way to the retreat expecting God to show up and that He did. Also, we had a movie night, kickboxing in the morning, neo soul gospel session, a prophetic massage, we fellowshipped with one another, make-over from a Mary Kay consultant, open forum, jewelry session, a word from Pastor Sonia, and we had church with Pastor Nita. God loves us, He showed us how much he cares, and our needs were met at a place called there!
I, too, was bless on the retreat. Not only did I hear from the Lord during my quiet time but, the Holy Spirit used two witnesses to verify not only my vision but the place He has me now. He wants me to rest in the Him and watch His salvation. Also, He allowed me to see a glimpse of heaven on earth by witnessing unconditional love, fellowship, praising, worshiping, laughter, healing, deliverance, cleansing by the washing of the word, and so many more. And yet our God gave us balance with the making jewelry, proper use of makeup, and a host of many activities during out free time (smile) Thank you Pastor Sonia, Pastor Nita, and all of you for making Blossoming Vines 1st retreat a God Success!!
