I have been intensely seeking the Lord about going forward with our 2020 Retreat this year. Specifically, the situation that Covid-19 puts us in. It is so fluid and unpredictable.
I have not been able to get peace and wrap my head around a solution that would keep 250 ladies safe, first of all.
Secondly, the fact that the resort requires an answer by August 1st if we were going forward or canceling.
Thirdly, the fact that we spend a little over $1,000 to send out our first registration / invitation brochure, and the potential we would have to cancel, and then obligated to mail more information that would be costly as well as a lot of crazy work.
I have been praying and waiting till the last possible minute to make a decision. Well, I feel confident the Lord made the decision for me.
On a regular basis for the past several weeks I have been in contact with the resort and the latest updates.
Corporate office continues putting so many restrictions on the resort due to Covid-19.
At the present (July 1) they are:
- Limiting the conference room to 75 people
- Requiring a 6 foot social distancing in the conference room
- Requiring each person in the conference to weak a mask
Just to name a few here.
Corporate office thinks these restrictions will be in place for many months ahead.
Therefore, I made the difficult, executive decision to cancel Retreat 2020. This decision was very painful for me. The Lord knows I have combined fasting, a lot of prayer and care about this Ministry and the wonderful ladies who attend. I do completely Trust the Lord and Trust His guidance, and feel the Lord gave me definitive direction for our group.
Going forward, PLR dates for 2021 are October 27-29.
Stay safe sweet ladies. Stay steady serving our Savior. Sister, you are Still in His stare. I desire to LIVE there.
A servant’s heart,
“Women Reaching Women For Christ”
