One of the amazing parts of the retreat experience is that the global women receive gifts each day of the retreat. These are gifts that are meant to be special “treats” that the women may not normally splurge on for themselves or are unable to purchase internationally. In the coming months, we will be sending out individual gift assignments to each of you. Please be prayerfully considering whom you can ask to donate and help you collect these gifts. Friends, family, bible studies, Sunday school classes, etc. love the opportunity to rally around what you are doing. This is an exciting way for them to participate in your trip - it will also provide a specific way for you to thank them for their involvement as you tell them about how their gifts were received by the attendees.
We ask that you leave room in your luggage to personally bring these items with you to the retreat. These gifts make such an impact on the Global Women you are traveling to minister to.
You will soon receive your gift collection instructions in a separate email. We have allotted for the exact number of items we require and are not planning to bring extras. If for any reason you are unable to collect all of the gifts that you were assigned please let me know as soon as possible so we can try to make other arrangements for collection and shipment. Thank you in advance for your generous contributions.
