Sep 20: What a day we've had! We thought this post would make it up on the blog hours before now, but wouldn't you know, wifi was slow and the women were a lot more fun (and worthwhile!) to spend time with. Today our attendees are connecting, sharing, praying, listening, laughing, dancing, learning, confiding and so much more. We hope you enjoy some photos of the day's activities. Please pray for continued connecting with others and communing with Yeshua.
