| The Hearts of our Kids are BIG

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.
