     With heavy hearts, we report that we have cancelled the Praise Unlimited Women’s Retreat at Black Rock Retreat for 2022.

     We had excitedly made plans to gather with scores of sisters at the end of January. But then we attended CFO at Capon Springs, WV, 10/31 to 11/5. While there, a few people became ill and stayed in their rooms the last day or two.

    After we left camp, we heard that a number of our campers had tested positive for COVID. Another CFO that met in GA while we were at Capon had more than 20 campers test positive.

     Our daughter Moye, a nurse, insisted that her Dad be tested. Results were positive. I never felt bad, but quarantined for 10 days; so did Ruth. We are both fine now.

    With news that a new South African variant of the disease is spreading, we don’t want to risk anyone becoming infected with this life-threatening virus. So we are “pulling the plug” on the ‘22 gathering. Please pray with us that we’ll be able to meet in ‘23.

We thought it would bless you to be reminded of their 2015 performance:


The Music Box Song
Sung to the tune: Red River Valley

Here’s a box that belongs to our family,
It’s a place where small treasures can hide;
But it’s more than an object of beauty, For it carries a secret inside.
When it’s closed it is pretty to look at;
Though attractive, it can’t make a sound.
When it’s opened, the music starts playing,
Provided the spring has been wound.
All God’s women should try to look pretty
Even though we are vessels of clay,
We are filled with new life from our Father,
So we honor and praise Him each day.
We don’t want to remain closed and silent;
Prayer and worship can wind up my spring.
Jesus, open me up for Your glory,
Daily help me Your praises to sing.

Performed by Ruth West, Amy Fennimore, Moye Stauffer, and Debbie Sue Dickson
