Pastor Daniel Hartwig, Calvary Baptist Church, Dysart, IA
On October 4-5th, 22 couples enjoyed another refreshing time at our 7th Annual Pastors & Wives Refresh Retreat at Iowa Regular Baptist Camp. As always, the fellowship was sweet, the food delicious, the giveaways and discounts appreciated, the singing uplifting, the message encouraging, and the Q&A enlightening. Pastor Daniel Hartwig from Dysart, led the retreat this year and gave away many free books and gifts from generous donors. Pastor Chad Hol from Harlan, led the singing and reminded us of many great truths through his selections. Pastor Dan Fields from Creston, encouraged us from the book of Colossians and challenged us to be thankful in all of life’s roles, and then transparently answered questions with his wife, Rebecca, in the morning, allowing us to see how God has worked in and through them in 18 years of associate pastoral ministry. We left Camp refreshed and encouraged to head back to minister to the churches Christ has called us to pastor. We look forward to next year’s Pastors & Wives Refresh Retreat with Jon Jenks, October 3-4, 2019.
