Eight couples and Chaplain Alex from the Soldier Recovery Unit (SRU) at Fort Sam Houston, San Antonio, TX. arrived in Fredericksburg Friday afternoon for a weekend of relaxing and with the Chaplain’s help, focusing on emotional awareness, reflection and growth of healthy relationships.
Everyone gathered at Hill Country Church for a delicious dinner with their first focus session to follow the meal. Church members volunteered to cook and serve the dinner while others were there to visit with the couples as they arrived and during the meal making them feel welcome and appreciated.
Saturday morning started with sessions 2 and 3 at the hotel followed by a break for lunch at Hondo’s on Main. Since couples were to spend the afternoon practicing what they had learned, they could set their own schedule for lunch.
St. Barnabas Episcopal Church hosted dinner Saturday evening. Couples were greeted with flowers for the ladies and individual photo which they were provided copies of to take with them. Volunteers served the delicious meal and made everyone feel welcome.
Sunday morning couples attended their last session. Prior to being dismissed, they received a devotional for couples and a box lunch. Some couples indicated they were going to explore Fredericksburg while others were headed back to San Antonio.
