Hispanic Retreat 2014 0133“We can’t wait until next year!” That was the response of one attendee of the Hispanic retreat in August 2014 in Ventura, Iowa.

For several years, Hispanic believers have enjoyed a weekend retreat at the Iowa Regular Baptist Camp in Ventura, Iowa.  Last year the retreat was held on September 19-20.

This retreat, with the three main sessions in Spanish and the sessions for the teens and children in English, spiritually challenged attendees through music, messages and fellowship one with another. Christian books and music were also available for purchase throughout the weekend. The camp facilities provided opportunities for physical refreshment through the use of paddle boats, the climbing wall, basketball, tennis, soccer, pontoon boat rides, a zip line, and train rides for children.

Our guest speaker was Bruce Burkholder. Bruce and his wife, Lisa, have served in ministry both here in the states and in Mexico City, and he is presently the Director of Editorial Bautista Independiente (the Spanish translation department of Baptist Mid-Missions) in Sebring, FL.

One attendee wrote, “I speak for my church family and say that they are all tremendously blessed by going to this retreat! The ones that didn’t get to were so sad. They all wish we could stay longer and can’t wait till next year. Everyone looks forward to this weekend for a long time and truly go away treasuring this time in their hearts.”

This retreat is led by Herb and Wanda Taylor who serve in Hispanic Ministries with Baptist Church Planters. The next Hispanic retreat will be held on August 21-22, 2015.
