Many of you have been praying for the women's retreat that Mary Beth organized and directed yesterday and the day before. She chose the date because it is a holiday and several women assured her that it wouldn't hurt the turn out. But a few days before the event, the woman in charge of promoting the event told Mary Beth that there was only one woman signed up! Yesterday was November 1st, which is the Day of the Dead, a holiday seriously observed by people in latin cultures, so many decided that they wouldn't be able to come to the retreat. Mary Beth requested prayer and by the end, 29 women attended, if one includes the couselors and speakers. I could tell watching from the sidelines that they had had a great time!
They had a knitting workshop.
And dress-up time!
