Women's Online Conference
May 2, 2020
The 2020 Ladies Retreat at Glacier Bible Camp this year was very different than in years past! With all of the governmental restrictions and protocols, the staff at Glacier Bible Camp were not sure if they were going to be able to hold the retreat. After much prayer, we felt that we were not to cancel the retreat, but rather change it to an Online Conference that would be held Saturday, May 2, from 10am-2pm. This was quite a stretch for all of us, but we really got to see the Hand of God in it all. Our plan would have reached about 250 ladies (mostly from Montana), but God’s plan was far better — with over 400 registrations coming in from all over the United States, Canada, Africa, and South Korea! And, now, we feel that we are to put the Conference online so that more women can be ministered to and blessed. Thank you all for your support and encouragement! We have received so many testimonies and we are excited to see what God is going to do from here.

(Mission America Placement Service) workers for five years on the reservations of North & South Dakota and at Central Indian Bible College. Over the next several years, they traveled all over the country with their 6 children doing a variety of ministries –conducting Kid’s Crusades; working with YWAM (Youth with a Mission) with inner-city youth; helping with discipleship training; ministering on the streets and in parks; speaking at churches, bible studies, and retreats; and working at youth camps. Currently, Thom and JoAnn are blessed to be able to be a part of all that God is doing at Glacier Bible Camp in Hungry Horse, Montana.
