My husband and I have served as host couple (providing meals and light housekeeping and friendly companionship) at Quiet Waters Retreat while the couples encountered intensive counseling a few hours a day from the counselors. We have seen the results in the lives of exhausted pastors, missionaries and their spouses through intensive counseling in a beautiful and restful setting. The story is best told through quotes from four thank you letters we have received: 1)"Your kind and gracious ministry were more than appreciated, they were life-giving. Many thanks for your warm hospitality and conversation." 2)"The last few months have been the most challenging of my life. I arrived Monday exhausted and very discouraged. Your ministry of caring meant a lot to me this week. It allowed me to focus on my walk with the Lord. Thank you for your attention to the little details this week. Thank you for your prayers." 3)"Thank you for making us feel welcome, comfortable, and loved." 4)"Words cannot adequately express how grateful we are for all the kindness, hospitality and love that you have given to us this week. Thank you for everything. Your presence provided a kind of covering and blessings that was so comforting. Thank you for your warm hearts, warm food, wisdom and service to us. We look forward to all God has in store next week and believe our appointment with you was just what God intended for us this week. You've been such a blessing." We also received a blessing by knowing these precious servants of the Lord, praying for and with them and seeing their relieved expressions toward the end of their time at the retreat.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have witnessed the results of this organization in private conversations about the progress that the couples and individuals were making in their personal healing, and in the thank you notes that we have received, detailing their satisfaction with their experiences.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

There is nothing that I would change in this organization except that I hope that financial support will increase so that more scholarship funding can be provided to the clients. Then the leadership can do what they do best, provide the finest counseling and spiritual transformation that is available, for exhausted pastors, missionaries and their spouses and families, to return them to their field of service with renewed wisdom and enthusiasm for family and ministry.

Not only have I referred numerous Pastors to Quiet Waters but I have personnally benefited from thier incrdible and ssensitive ministry. Too often churches seem to treat Pastors as employees rather than God's anointed ones. Quiet Waters helps Pastors and their families too process the world we live in and take a great internal look at who we are, what God has called us to, and what the next steps may be for healthy Christ centered serivce.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

finding a better understanding of who I am...how God made me and how to best serve Him.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Help it expand and reach more pastors and their families.
