On arriving at Collins Lodge in Forest Falls, we were welcomed by Chris and Dawn... After dinner all the guest pastor couples were given the schedule: no timetable, no wake up bells or curfew, no meetings, no expectations. What followed was 5 days of thorough relaxation, naps, walks, exploring and reading. Best of all was my husband's company, more than I've enjoyed for years.
The profit for me was time to talk and listen to God uninterrupted and to have long talks with my husband and have him share with me what God was saying to him. --Glenys
Duncan & Glenys attended the October 2009 retreat and minister in Moorpark, CA.
It was so AMAZING knowing that I had NO time limit to how long I could spend with Him, in His Word, meditating, praying, or journaling. I have NEVER in my life been given such an incredible gift of time with God.

God has given us the rest and the time to carefully and insightfully consider every area of our life. We have made concrete plans to put God in the center of our life and ministry where He belongs, and to work out His priorities in our life and ministry... This week has been an expression of God's personal, gracious love and care for us. God Himself placed us here where we needed to be... This was a time of spiritual renewal and an opportunity to reflect... I am challenged to bring this type of fruitful ministry rest to my daily life and ministry.
