Starting tonight, I will be co-leading a Rachel’s Hope After-Abortion healing retreat with three incredible sisters in Christ.  We will welcome a small group of courageous women suffering from the devastating effects of abortion.

The retreat is held at a former convent house with each woman having her own bedroom and pampered with home cooked meals, lovingly prepared by a volunteer. The overnight retreat provides them an opportunity to focus on themselves without distraction and be among other post-abortive women that bear the same scars (including the leaders). Through music, sharing, exercises and prayer, they are guided towards healing, concluding with a touching dedication ceremony for their babies.

As I prepare for this journey, my heart is filled with joyful anticipation.  Broken women will walk into the house tonight and on Sunday, walk out freed from the chains of emotional and spiritual pain having experienced the healing touch of God’s love, forgiveness and mercy.
"Rachel is weeping for her children.  She refuses to be comforted for her children are no more.  Thus says the Lord:  Wipe the tears from your eyes.  The sorrow you have shown shall have its reward."
(Jeremiah 31:15-17)
