The retreat will help you to encounter Jesus so personally and deeply and receive the GRACE in its abundance.

As Mark 16:20 says,”And they went forth and preached everywhere, while the Lord worked with them and confirmed the word through accompanying signs.” As and when the word of God is preached, God showers abundant miracles and signs realizing His promises and revealing the very presence of resurrected Lord Jesus Christ.
