Upcoming Events for Go the Distance, Prayer Needed

We are in the final few days before Recalibrate–a one-day retreat for men this Saturday.  As many of you know reading this update, we do not put on your “typical men’s retreat.”   The mission of Go the Distance events is to create experiences where people (in this case, men) can encounter God.   This does not come easily and there are usually many distractions that men bring into an event like this.  Please pray with us and for us for soul-level refreshment, reorientation, refueling so these men can be strengthened for their wives, children, work, church and community.  Pray specifically for the following words that we’ve been nudged to focus on (and pray against):

  • An Orphan Spirit, or a Spirit of Loneliness
  • An Unforgiving Spirit
  • The Spirit of Pride
  • Religious Spirit
  • Busy-ness
  • Fear, anxiety, discouragement.

Pray that this one-day retreat will awaken and/or advance the 75-85 men in their walk with Jesus Christ.  We covet your prayers for whole event team, the speaker team, the AV Equipment, and to help buffer the Intercessor team.  In fact, if you are willing to pray for us through the weekend, would you reply to this post?  I would love to have a list of prayer warriors throughout the country backing us up (whether or not you reply!).

Please pray the Love of the Father would fill each and every of our hearts up to overflowing!   Pray that we discover more of our Sonship with the Father.

I cannot wait and look forward to what packages Jesus is going to deliver to these men’s hearts!

MARRIAGE RETREAT UPDATE
Some of you know that we filled up our March 15-17 marriage retreat last November (it filled in 45 days).  Well, we had 7 couples on a waiting list and worked with Timber Wolf Lake for another date this Fall–November 1-3.  We already have two couple signed up for that and can take 16 more.  Details for the November retreat can be found here.

Regarding the March ReDiscover the Heart of Your Marriage Retreat…planning is in full swing.  We are looking for people who feel called specifically to pray for marriages to be part of our “off-site” prayer team.  If this is you, please reply to this post and we will get you on the list with more specifics to follow in the weeks to come.

WOMENS RETREAT UPDATE
While Go the Distance doesn’t formally have a women’s retreat planned, we are very much in favor of supporting other like-hearted organizations that are bringing Jesus and all the freedom and life he offers to women.  We are very pleased to partner with Northern Michigan Captivating Retreat this year in helping them get the word out.  Feel free to help us spread the word and invite others!

Their retreat is April 25-28 at Timber Wolf Lake, the same place where Hearts Alive & Free takes place.  Click here to be directed to their website.

The other women’s retreat that we also recommend is Unveiled with Gail Ramesh and her team.  That is also April 25-28 at Camp Michawana in Hastings, MI.  Click here for more info.

So many good things to be thankful for.  Thank you to all who believe in God, us and this mission of restoring the hearts of others!!

Many blessings to you and many thanks for praying for our initiatives coming up.

Kevin & Lori
