First Becky's Hope Retreat - Valea Draganului, Romania
In 2006 we were able to sponsor the first of many retreats for families of special needs children. We encouraged families through the teaching of the Bible and explained how God's love extends to all people regardless of their needs. At the retreat, we broke out into small groups encouraging every mother to particiapte in hopes they would open theri hearts to the healing process. These mothers who felt rejected and alone were able to express their feelings and received prayer and comfort.
