On Jan. 14, more than 70 high school girls attended Spencerville Adventist Academy’s second annual spiritual retreat for high school girls. The retreat was held at the academy and the theme for this year was “Empowered Through Jesus”. Powerful, inspiring messages were delivered by keynote speaker Leah Jordache, former SAA Bible teacher and Spencerville church member. It was also a blessing to have Amanda Rodriguez, executive director of Turn Around Inc. and Spencerville church member, and Chelsy Tyler, Volunteers pastor at New Hope (Fulton, Md.) church, present wonderful seminars. The music and decorations were beautiful. The food was yummy. It was a joyful day!
During the Sabbath, the girls participated in multiple activities such as a Bible scavenger hunt, a puzzle contest, coloring, painting, and much more. A prayer room was set up for girls to spend some quiet time alone with God. Toward the end of the day, students enjoyed having a “Girls’ Talk” led by a group of seniors and teachers. After sunset, there was fun to be had participating in many activities during “Chica’s Night.”
