This is the first time I am planning a Retreat for the Singles Ministry in my Church and I’ve found all these ideas... to be so very helpful. Thank you so much Cyndee, you have almost done all the work for me. To God be the glory… as we set about to put it into action.

Cyndee, You wanted to know how our retreat turned out, well it turned out wonderful…. God helped so much, though I never doubted He would because He had given me the vision of it months ago. We had 26 ladies show up. And according to the survey that 14 of them filled out, it exceeded their expectations in every area. I really believe God is beginning a work in their hearts. They want more! So many of them said they felt a love and peace there they had not felt in years.I believe the speaker God showed me to get was just the person they needed. I can tell they are longing for a women’s ministry and fellowship. I am new at this and I really want to thank you for all your help. To God be the glory.
