RHOW CPM Men's Retreat!
Ray facilitated his first men’s retreat the weekend of March 18th-20th! It was such a joy using my organizational and administrative gifts to help my husband organize the weekend.
We had 50 men go up to Camp Deerpark, two hours north of NYC. The theme of the weekend was “Boys 2 Men” and centered around the idea that it is time to become the man God has called you to be. We had phenomenal speakers like Grateful Ray who shared his powerful testimony about coming to know the Lord and leaving some behaviors behind. The men got to bond and spend some downtime playing basketball, handball, and spades. On Friday night, the men wrote letters to God talking about their biggest regret and biggest hindrance to becoming the man God wants them to be. The highlight of the retreat was Saturday night when the men got to sit around the fireplace and read the responses to their letters—the “Letters From God.” It was a powerful and intimate moment where the men connected to each other and with God. Many burdens were left behind on the mountain that weekend. It’s hard to put the weekend into words—you had to be there! Check out our pictures from the weekend below.
We look forward to our next men’s retreat which will be this winter! My husband and I are praying about having a marriage retreat at some point as well.
