November is approaching quickly and it won’t be long until we are all huddled together in Valley. All 150 of us – huddled in tight. As always we are so looking forward to being with each of you.
REVIVE 2017 DATES ARE: November 8-11. You can begin arriving on Wednesday, November the 8th at 1 pm for rest, reading, fellowship, and pampering time. Registration will happen from 1 pm until 5 pm on Wednesday. We will begin promptly at 5:30 pm with our time together so please make every effort to be there by 5:30 and stay for the entire retreat. We will end our time together on Saturday the 11th at approximately 10 am.
If you are a veteran of “REVIVE” you know how precious this time is to each of us. What began as a dream in the heart of a worn-out missionary is “still” coming true.
Worship in your own language, fellowshipping with other women who “get it”, being encouraged by people who came to do nothing more than walk alongside your heart for a weekend, allowing your heart to be “still” so that you can listen to and hear from Jesus … it’s way too much for mere words honestly. This space is sacred and we know that quite well.
If you have never been with us before – you have most likely heard about us through one of your “sisters” who have invited you to come to the party. Allow us to say welcome to the sisterhood. We love you before we know you – that’s for certain. We pray that soon you will also deeply love what God has created in this space we call “Revive.” More than anything we pray that your heart will come and be refreshed and you will walk so much different than you came because of your experience over the weekend with Christ.
Registration for Revive 2017 will go live on September 1st so please be ready to register on that date if possible. Because of accommodations and logistics, we have to limit our numbers. Over the past few years, we have maxed out the facility with all of your sweet selves. Please DO NOT wait and think there will be room – we registered over 100 people within the first couple hours last year. So it’s super important that you register as soon as possible.
It is also super important that if your plans change for some reason that you let us know so that we can open up your spot to another sister who might be put on a waiting list. We want to ensure that we are using resources wisely so please let us know if for whatever reason after registering, you are unable to attend.
In the meantime, please know that we are praying for each of you and the ways that you impact the Kingdom. We know that God sees every single long day, worn out heart, teary eye, starving child, and borderline burn-out. (He sees all the amazing stuff too – we just don’t usually have a hard time believing that truth.)
May we just take a moment to remind you that what you’re doing is so very worth it. On most days you know that. On the days that you forget or perhaps doubt, please know that there are cheerleaders miles away who are chanting loudly – carry on warrior, you can do hard things – you have all of Heaven rooting for you!
We will see you so very soon.
You have our hearts and prayers always…
