Oregon Women Enjoy Klamath Falls and Lakeview Retreats

Two May retreats have blessed and inspired women in Lakeview, Ore., and Klamath Falls, Ore.

Corleen Johnson, North Pacific Union Conference prayer coordinator, presented the theme "Connected" at the Women's Ministries Retreat in Klamath Falls, held May 5–6. She urged each one present to spend quality time connecting with Jesus in order to be equipped to serve Him and His children.

Small prayer-groups were formed, and many people expressed the benefits they received from what was shared throughout the meetings.

Those who attended the May 20 Women's Retreat in Lakeview were challenged to seek a closer walk with Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit. The music and the messages were given by five ladies from the Klamath Falls Church: Donna French, Kathy Davis, Patty Stimpel, Gretchen Bowers and Marcia Mollenkopf.

Mollenkopf stressed the importance of daily prayer to commune with Jesus, learn from Him, find strength to follow Him, lead others to Him and glorify Him.

At each of these retreats, the women who attended were drawn to seek a closer relationship with Jesus, a more intimate prayer life and an open heart toward the Spirit's leading.
