Great Commission Europe (GCE) missionaries and their families have enjoyed annual, much-needed retreats together in various locations in Europe. It is a time when these cross-cultural workers can rest and relax together, enjoy the company of fellow laborers, and be refreshed by the Lord. There are opportunities for worship, prayer, and encouragement from inspiring messages. And there is also time to simply unwind – to walk along the beach, read a good book, spend time with our families – and to listen to God’s voice freshly.
An important goal of the retreat is to provide a good Vacation Bible School (VBS) – type program for our children, so that they, too, can be encouraged and grow in their friendships with one another, and in their love for the Lord. Teams of volunteers from America who love children provide a huge service by preparing a program for the older children, as well as by caring for our infants. I<em>f you think you might be interested in helping us in this way in the future by putting together a childcare team, please contact us.</em>
