Retreats are an integral part of the Extreme Church Planting process. As new attenders progress through their discipleship journey, they are invited to attend a retreat (Encounter) where they spend time focused on worship, prayer and teaching. This last weekend the Ambato Team held their second Encounter weekend. Here is a quick summary and a few pictures. Our "2nd Encounter with God" was a tremendous success! We had 27 people in attendance; 19 of whom attend our local church in Ambato.
We had workshops about destroying idols in our lives, God's plan for our families, forgiveness, God's plan for sexuality, blessings versus curses and knowing the Holy Spirit.
The Spirit moved mightily. People were encountered by God in a new and fresh way. Hearts were healed freed from the chains of bitterness and un-forgiveness. Families are being restored and renewed. Peoples lives for eternity and here on earth will never be the same.
"I will never again be who I once was" was the mantra of the weekend.
All the glory and honor be to God!
