Retrouvaille Weekend

For this marriage weekend beginning tomorrow, July 17th to the 19th, we registered 45 married couples who are desperately seeking help in their marriage with 3 couples calling it quits. As the Registration Couple for this past year, we have cried and prayed with many of them who find themselves desperate to save whatever is left of their marriage.
This job has been extremely hard for both of us. Many times taking us back to past painful moments during our fall, however, it has also been extremely enriching within our marriage because, God has used our testimony to give hope to those that don't think there is any hope out there. It is weird how God uses our fall to glorify him and to help others.
So, our journey as the Registration Couple for Retrouvaille ends as of tomorrow as we turn it over to a new couple. It is a bittersweet feeling. By that I mean as our family goes from 3 to 4 very soon, our time will be limited and it will be hard for us to give as much to it as we have been this past year. There has been times where we just didn't want to do it anymore because it can take a lot of you emotionally but we will also miss connecting with people who are seeking help.
What I take out of this past year journey is that no matter how great you think your marriage is, there should always be time for a tune-up before things change before your eyes.

We thank the Lord for this great opportunity to have served him. Now, we will wait on Him to give us our next assignment to serve Him. -Sandra.
