Peter and a few colleagues co-led a spiritual retreat for 50 Dominican pastors and church leaders. This trip provided two blessings. First, the desire to see all four DR partners work together happened with this retreat. The second, was on this trip Peter got to do something extra special. He brought to completion a project our kids started and fundraised for back in 2014. God also showed us once again “God’s time” with the beginnings of restoration of relationships with pastors through the conference.

Psalm 46:1-3 has been a source of faith and hope during this challenging time:
God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear,
though the earth should change,
though the mountains shake in the heart of the sea;
though its waters roar and foam,
though the mountains tremble with its tumult.
Hope is born and nurtured between Middletown (Ohio) and Valencia (Spain).
