WFW - Girlfriend Getaway

My weekend had laughter...



It had praise..


It had sound Biblical teaching...


This weekend marked an important event in the Christ following story of my friend, Cindy Foor.  Cindy is one of the best Bible teachers I know.  I have heard her talk to women, to youth, and to just little old me, and every single time - she hits the nail on the head.  She has the unique ability to have me crying one moment, laughing the next, and often doing both at the same time!  Cindy is a true joy-filled Christ follower, and I love to be around her!  To quote her bio: "She allows God to use her as a messenger of His truth, gleaned from her time spent in prayer and study of His Holy Word. Although her teaching style includes lots of humor, that humor does not overshadow the depth of Cindy's passion to be a faithful steward of God's gifts to her. She is a generous and compassionate teacher with an ability to discern a group's or an individual's needs, and she guides them to God's Word for the application of His truths to their lives. She displays a holy boldness in her pursuit to inspire people to live their lives fully in Christ and the freedom He died to provide."

This weekend was the first ever Girlfriend Getaway!  God planted this idea in Cindy's heart last year - this idea to start a one-night getaway conference for women to gather, have fun with each other, and draw closer to God.  This weekend, in the ballroom of the Altoona Ramada, God's plan for Cindy's ministry was fulfilled.  We laughed, we cried, we allowed Cindy to speak God's Truth to us and His Word to pierce our hearts.  The conference is coming to Lancaster, Atlanta, New Jersey, and Pittsburgh.  If that's near you, will you join us?
