On March 24-25, 2006 over 400 ladies from across the state of Wisconsin gathered for their annual Ladies Retreat at Maranatha Baptist Bible College in Watertown. Mrs. Holly Stratton, the president’s wife from Clearwater Christian College was the featured speaker, challenging the ladies with the theme “Under His Wings.” In addition there were nine workshops providing a variety of subjects taught by various leaders from the state.
One of the features of this retreat was the honoring of Daisy Sanasac who with her husband was one of the founders of the WFBC back in 1950. A special offering was taken in her behalf for the renovation of the Sanasac cabin at Camp Chetek. Another blessing of the retreat was the new dining common at the college which provided adequate facilities which along with the gymnasium making this retreat much easier for the ladies to move around and hold their workshops.
Next year’s retreat will be held at Northland Baptist Bible College in Dunbar, Wisconsin on March 16-17, 2007. Mark your calendars and plan to attend this wonderful time of challenge and fellowship.
