Retreat Centre Closing
We have just finished a full schedule of retreats for the first six months of 2018 concluding with the LDC that ended 2 June. At this point we are not taking any further bookings for personal retreats, running or hosting seminars as we are moving away from this property. It has been an amazing 8 years in this location and 10 years of the leadership retreat centre. We would appreciate prayer as we seek discernment for the future ministry.
LDC’S COMING UP
The YWAM TOGETHER 2018 registration site has an option for making room bookings. https://ywamtogether.com/home The LDC Summit meetings will be held at the same hotel–AMBASSADOR CITY JOMTIEN. So you can book accommodation for the LDC Summit and Y together conference at the same time. All the details of costs etc are on the website. When you have booked accommodation email Stephen Mayers (firstname.lastname@example.org) to let him know you are coming for the LDC Summit. Anyone who has staffed or planning to staff an LDC is welcome.

The second law of thermodynamics states that everything swerves to rot or put more nicely, tends towards decline. Mission drift is that law lived out in an organisation.
