Hispanic Women’s Retreat

by: Marline Del Valle

“I don’t want to leave the camp. I think if I do, I may not continue to walk in the footsteps of Jesus, as I have done this weekend…” These were some of the feelings expressed by one of the ladies who attended the Hispanic Women’s Retreat at ICC September 6-8.  The theme for the weekend was In His Steps. There were 217 ladies in attendance; 13 were non-Seventh-day Adventist ladies who expressed their desire to keep walking in the footsteps of Jesus in their daily lives.

Those who attended were blessed by Pitta Nessy, guest speaker and Natasha Perez who shared special music throughout the retreat. They also enjoyed the Saturday evening dinner with food and music from the 1950s.  Some of the women also dressed from the 1950s era.

This was a weekend full of wonderful Christian fellowship and a time of getting closer to Jesus and learning how to walk in His footsteps daily.
