Ops Retreat Update

Military Ministry Staff at the Operations Retreat

Rick and I just returned from the Military Ministry Operations Staff retreat.  We were there with staff members from other regions for a time of encouragement, replenishment, and learning.  We traveled to the Redwood Forests of Northern California (funny, we live by “Gulf Stream waters”–I know not really the Gulf Stream, the Gulf!) and were in awe of God’s creation.  Somehow, looking at an 1800 year old tree, that soars 250 feet above our heads, just reminded us that our God inspires awe!

This was our first encounter with all the staff who do the same jobs we do, but in different regions.  There with us were the Fishbacks/Tyrells (Europe), the Dorners (Red River/Texas), the Barrons (Southern California), the Cooks (Monterrey), the MacIntoshes (Great Lakes), the Trexlers (Hampton Roads) and other national staff who work in MilMin Headquarters in Newport News.  Each of these veteran families gave us ideas of how the ministry works in their area, so we could set goals based on their experiences.   It was a blessing.  The national staff, who encourage us regularly, gave us a ideas of how the vision and mission of the whole organization can help us reach the goal of our ministry,  that we would be caring community passionate about connecting the global military community to Jesus Christ.
