The 2021 Christian Family Retreat took place in Enugu over the weekend and to the glory of God, it afforded me and my family the opportunity to meet with other 7 families to spend time with each other in fellowship.
Since 2015, each year we use the holiday period during Easter to meet and critically look at how we are faring in our families. This retreat was born out of the fact that so many preachers and church leaders are not getting it right with their families. They may be effective in preaching but very poor in family management. They may be eloquent in evangelism but very poor in interpersonal communication with their spouse. So, to fill this gap, we decided to come together to share experiences with each other and help each other build a very strong home.
My family was blessed being in this year’s retreat. Our thinking is that a strong family leads to a strong church. Your support is part of what gave me the financial muscle to attend this retreat. We have to pay for accommodation for four days and pay for feeding during this period. I am glad that the retreat is having positive results. Lord willing, we shall be in Port Harcourt next year.
