The women and teens of the Boatswain Bay Presbyterian Church recently took part in a weekend conference and retreat at the Grand Caymanian Holiday Inn.
The event kicked off on Friday, May 13, and featured a variety of activities designed to inspire and leave the participants with a stronger sense of fellowship.
The retreat was chaired by Eziethamae “Zeta” Bodden who, along with committee members Peg Smith, Ingrid Ebanks, Charlene Rivers and Judy Powery, set a packed schedule for the weekend exploring the spiritual side of life.
“Our guest speaker was Mrs. Lori Wolfe, who is an international speaker from the United States,” said Ms. Bodden. Mrs. Wolfe and her husband Rich have a long-standing connection to the church, as Mr. Wolfe is the Caribbean regional director with Mission to the World, and in the past Mrs. Wolfe helped lead the church’s “Love Languages” workshop.
Mrs. Wolfe, a popular women’s bible study and retreat speaker, lived in the Philippines for a time as a missionary and now resides in Colorado Springs where she teaches English, public speaking and bible to middle and high school students.
“Our programs started with praise and worship led by our praise team of Esther Rivers, Eilene Sutton, Anais Tatum and Cindy Powery, then our small group leaders of Mrs. Arlene Whittaker, Ingrid Ebanks, Ludivene Dilbert and Sasha Hunte lead our Saturday morning session,” said Ms. Bodden. “Everyone enjoyed the retreat and left Sunday feeling inspired.”
At the Sunday morning service that followed, participants shared a recap for the congregation and Mrs. Wolfe gave a testimony.
