What a Weekend to Remember in Corpus Christi!
Posted by Jerry Dugan
Steve & Bobbie Lawrence of Real Life Fellowship led a prayer team that was on-site in full force, and in even greater force off-site. We linked up with the Cleveland, Ohio Weekend to Remember Prayer Team as well to pray over each other's getaways. The veterans on the team were amazed at how the Lawrences and the prayer team were able to walk out of the room in high spirits, but they were well-grounded in God's word and set up an environment filled with a positive, uplifting atmosphere (Christian music in the background, pranks galore, and even an appearance by Frio Caliente our team's unofficial prayer wrestler.)
The resources center was selling out of books faster than they could keep them stocked.
Couples were sharing with us many of their stories such as being on the verge of divorce and now renewed in their love for each other, or glad to be able to get away from the kids to focus on each other, and my favorite, the mother from New Mexico who came to the Corpus Christi event to celebrate her 30th anniversary. We found her on the phone during a break on Sunday trying to schedule a Weekend to Remember for her five grown children and their spouses ASAP.
