All the glory to God for the mentor training event on Oct 16th and 17th at which 24 marriage mentor couples were trained and certified as Prepare/Enrich facilitators. While that may seem a modest number, it is a huge first step for the Northwest Milwaukee Area.
Forty additional couples attended a mentor training class on Saturday afternoon. As Wes Johnson of Rawhide Ranch in Green Bay said, “this is a small army of trained mentors. They will have a tremendous impact on the community.” Indeed.
More important than the training, certification and the numbers, we met men and women who attended the training for the sheer purpose of investing in the marriages in their churches and community. That was extremely uplifting to all of us involved. I praise God for the opportunity to meet so many and be uplifted by their passion and zeal for marriage ministry.
A hearty thanks goes out to Thinkmarriage.org (Susan, John, Angie, and Dixie) who teamed up with WFC to serve the churches and couples. We are also grateful to Bishop Hines of Christian Faith Fellowship Church for making the Destiny Center available to us. The kind staff at the Center were gracious and very helpful. Finally, we are grateful to Wes Johnson for providing the bulk of the training.
