What are women saying about Haven Retreats???
"This retreat has been so amazing for me – and such a great refresh for my soul. It has strengthened me to continue the work God has called me here. I am blessed and refreshed. Thank you for your sacrificial giving that enables me – a Jewish girl to take part.” ~ Israeli ministering in Israel
"There were so many moments at this retreat that I felt refreshed, encouraged, challenged, & empowered. I have never experienced such an edifying, life-giving group of women before! I am so excited to return home and use the ways I have been blessed her to bless others.” ~ American military wife ministering in Israel
“I can’t begin to tell you what God has done in my life through the last few days of this retreat! Every day, we as woman, pour our lives out in service for Christ and others. The goal is always to give out of the abundant excess that God has poured in, but lately, if I can be honest, the excess has not been there and the well has been dry, yet the demands keep coming. Having this time to get away, laugh, pray, and be prayed for, worship, and be quiet before my living Savior Jesus, has not only filled the tank but produced the overflow that I need daily. Not only that, but I have more clarity on the issues that depleted my will and what needs to change as a result!
~ American serving in Rwanda
“I must say that this retreat was for me in particular. I lost my lovely son last year in Oct 22 and I did not know that my heart was full of tears and pain until I came here for the Azmera Haven Retreat. …Everyone accepted me the way I was and welcomed my tears. I realized I hadn’t checked my inner self for a long time. I praise God that the Holy Spirit pointed out my tears and pain, and now I am free and light in Jesus’s name.“ ~Ugandan serving in Uganda
"Personally, from this experience of the retreat, I have been cared for, I have been made to feel special, I have been reaffirmed in my gifting. God has totally used this time to bless me. It was very much needed during a dark time in ministry. Thank you for supporting this investment in my life.” American serving in Bolivia
“I want you to know what an amazing blessing this ministry is. Over the past few days I’ve witnessed hearts and lives changed. God was here and moving in each of our lives. I am leaving today refreshed, renewed and knowing that I am 100% loved by our Savior. The memories I have made will last a lifetime. A truly impactful 3 days." American serving in Bolivia
