In The Garden was the theme of our retreat and, sadly, it ended this afternoon.
There were only six of us. Five American women and 1 Indian woman who was our speaker. I found that to be really beautiful, that we were Americans ministering to Indians and we had the opportunity to be ministered to by an Indian woman.
This was the first time in nine years that I had any kind of opportunity for fellowship quite like this. I was blessed. I especially feel like God ordained the timing of the retreat to come right at the beginning of my two weeks of Hindi study (and reflection/seeking God.) It was like a spiritual preparation.
