S.O.S.

I was having a meeting with one of the other leaders of Response (Women's Bible Study on campus) and we were talking about our annual retreat and we decided to have it at the end of this month....

January 30, 31st, and February 1st.

WHAT HAVE I DONE?

It's either that or not have one since I am working a flight, a walk, and a journey with partridge in a pear tree.

Our theme is "Marvelous Light" and it comes from I Peter 2:9. I will post the graphic as soon as it's done.



But I desperately need your help to make this happen.

1. by your prayers.
2. by your help--

----I need a location! Last year we had it at the Power House, but they closed on Friday night and I would hate to ask them to do that again (although it was an amazing location and worked perfectly...) If you know of a location, such as a cabin that is pretty local and cheaply rented, or a church hall with a kitchen and such, please email me at lauren.thatgirl@gmail.com
----I need donations of food/$$. We ask each girl to pay $20 to attend the retreat this year, but you and I know that even $20 can be a stretch for a college kid. So I am looking for a few of my local blog readers to help out. If you areinterested in donating a batch of cookies or a bag of chips and some soda (or whatever else your heart tells you---chocolate....) please email me at lauren.thatgirl@gmail.com


Thank you, Bloggerotsky....I knew I could count on you!!

Love you all--and thanks for being the hands and feet of Jesus!
