Amarillo Women’s Ministries Hosts Special Weekend
Amarillo, Texas » Darla Sutton, the women’s ministries leader of the Amarillo Seventh-day Adventist Church, coordinated a women’s retreat primarily for the Texas panhandle region on April 8-9. There were 52 women who registered for the first session on Sabbath. There were women from the Amarillo, Big Springs, Dalhart, Hereford, and Clovis churches. We were blessed by all our speakers during this wonderful weekend and on Sunday, enjoyed a nutritional breakfast burrito meal prepared and served by the men.
On Sabbath morning, Roxanne Smyth, Texico Conference women’s ministries director, gave a beautiful message titled, “Remember Lot’s Wife.” Sutton shared her testimony and inspiration for choosing the theme: “Finding: Joy, Peace and Trust in Our Chaotic World.” On Sabbath evening and Sunday morning, Tracie Metherell, a pastoral counselor, shared inspirational talks and gave building blocks to help us continue finding joy, peace and trust in our chaotic world. One of these building blocks that can be utilized is goal setting, especially for our careers and hobbies. Tracie concluded her remarks by assuring us that our values (the structure of our lives) must be well defined and consistently lived out. Also, she reminded us that Jesus is by our side and with our hand in His hand, our journey and walk with Him will be victorious. The whole weekend was a blessing for all the women who attended.
