Thanks for asking:
The retreat was a big hit, our small local church had almost 100 women attend and the feedback was very positive.The bible study has been going well, I am still enjoying leading it. We are going to finish up the Trumpets by the middle of June and then take a break for the summer and finish up in the fall. I have a great group of about 8 regulars who join in discussion and ask challenging questions. I try to be careful to not only express my understanding but also the views of others as well. I challenge them to study the word for themselves, I know a couple of them are doing just that, while the others are more along for the ride I think, but they are still learning. My real hope is to get them all into the word, to inspire them to hunger and thirst for righteousness and to live a life that is truly pleasing to the Lord- to be alert and living as if Christ could return any day.
