Divisional Women's Retreat
May 19-21, 2023 William Jessup University $85 (The total cost is $175. This includes your t-shirt, meals, transportation, and lodging.)
We are excited to announce that “My Story” is the theme for our 2023 Divisional Women’s Retreat! Our Women’s Department is planning an unforgettable weekend filled with workshops, games, free time activities, a banquet, and much more. We will have with us a praise team from Hawaii Kroc Center. Our guest speaker is Toni Collier. She is the founder of Broken Crayons Still Color, an international women's ministry that helps women process their brokenness and reclaim hope. We cannot wait to hear what God has done throughout your story. The weekend theme verse comes from 2 Timothy 1:3-11 and the theme song is “God is in the story.”
Saturday night will be our formal dinner! We encourage you to dress up with a fancy hat. The banquet will focus on how we women wear many different hats.
See Major AnnMarguerite if you want to go and select your workshops.
Registration is due April 14th.

Turkey & Syria Earthquake/International Response
Because The Salvation Army doesn’t have an established presence in Turkey or Syria, we’re assessing options to partner with agencies that do. Services would likely include providing emergency relief to survivors and first responders in the area, including feeding, essential hygiene and cleanup supplies, and emotional and spiritual care.
Those who would like to financially support these efforts may visit www.sawso.org. Donations via SAWSO will help us, in collaboration with partner organizations in the region, provide urgently needed assistance to survivors.
International Prayer Focus
This initiative of turning our thoughts and prayers towards the same part of the world at some point in the same week is a beautiful way to unite us as a global Army family and I thank you for the commitment you each give to this.

WEEK 5 - A Prayer for Encouragement for our Salvation Army Leaders:
A Prayer for Fresh Energy and Creativity
Creator God, You created this universe from nothing, fitting together all of its growing, self-renewing details in absolute perfection.
You anticipated that we humans would sin and separate ourselves from you so, in Jesus, you created the perfect solution for the mess we made, and in Him, we become new creations.
Made in your image, we too love to create. To think of new thoughts, dream new possibilities and bring them into existence, compose new songs, write new poems, and create solutions to problems that we or others make.
We also, though, have a tendency to settle comfortably into what is familiar and put limits on the new things you may desire to accomplish in your world through us.
Give your leaders, and through them, your Army, renewed energy we pray.
Release the fresh desire to see new possibilities become realities, courage to empower those who may think or do things differently, and willingness to encourage whatever it takes to ‘save souls, grow saints and serve suffering humanity’.
Father of all creativity, send your Spirit of freedom and break us out of what is to what could be for the sake of bringing Jesus to those who need to know Him. AMEN
May the Lord bless you as you bless others through your intercessions on their behalf.
Requests will be prayed for in our Prayer Room and distributed through our Prayer Chain. Requests can be made anonymously.
