MI Re-Entry Retreat to Be Held at Highland Lakes
Indiana and Kentucky WMUs are co-sponsoring the annual MK Re-Entry Retract for IMB missionary kids returning for college. This event is coordinated by IMB and state WMUs to provide an intense time of orientation for students to help them adjust to life in the United States. A casual camp atmosphere helps them relax as they discuss serious topics that will impact their college years and help them cope with issues facing most college students.
WMU provides backpacks, lodging, meals, snacks, and more snacks, and more snacks plus some fun-filled sessions designed for interaction among students. This year’s event is being coordinated by Allison Kinion, Indiana WMU and Liz Encina, Kentucky WMU. If your church would like to participate financially, there’s still time to give! Contact the Indiana state WMU office and speak with Terah Adams.
The event will be held August 4-7. Here’s how you can pray:
1. Pray for safe travel and minimum pandemic restrictions.
2. Pray for the health of college students as they gather.
3. Pray that the students will be able to overcome homesickness for their family and homes.
4. Pray that camp counselors and presenters will connect with the students and establish strong ties even during this brief time together.
5. Pray that students will feel God’s presence as they begin new lives in new surroundings and meet new life challenges in the United States.
