February, 2016, Family Retreat
Families came to Fredericksburg last weekend, 2/19-2/21, looking for some respite from their everyday military life.
They were greeted with smiles, hugs and huge welcomes Friday night. Seems they can’t get away from the chow line but this time it was for awesome homemade chili, hot dogs and all the trimmings followed by mountains of chocolate treats!! Then came BINGO!!! Then everyone went to their guest house or hotel for the night.
Saturday after a leisure morning, everyone met at Fredericksburg Brewing Co. for lunch then back to the Methodist Church for some counseling sessions with Chaplain Ginsburg. The kiddos were being cared for by Aloha Sitters while the adults were with the chaplain. During a break Lauren was surprised with a birthday cake complete with candles and singing. The chaplain told everyone to go have a fun ‘date night’ without the children. And they did!!
While here some went to the movie, the gun & knife show, trade days, National Museum of the Pacific, sat on the guest house porch and watched deer, slept – basically relaxed!! No, no one could do all of these things but they had a lot to choose from. Just a few comments from our guests:
“It’s so peaceful.” “Everything is so nice!” “Didn’t Know What to Expect” “Counseling was So Good”
GOD is so good to provide generous people in Fredericksburg willing to support Wounded Warriors at Nebo by donating their guest house, cooking, discounted tickets, volunteering, financially and prayers. Without you all these events would not happen. THANK YOU!!
