Soul Care Retreat: I Will Give You Rest

At the end of his life Moses blessed Benjamin with these beautiful words: “Let the beloved of the LORD rest secure in him, for he shields him all day long” (Deuteronomy 33:12). We will be leaning into the secure rest that Jesus has promised his beloved ones. Time will be given in this in this retreat for listening to God’s Word and to experiencing the rest God has promised all the children he loves. Beloved ones, come and receive the rest only Jesus can give.

Space is limited to 20 participants, and registration deadline is Wednesday, July 17 at 4 PM ET.

Online via ZOOM

Friday, July 19, 10:00 am – 1:00 pm (Eastern Daylight Time)

Mitzi Mak

Selah-West Faculty

Mitzi started her professional life as a high school social studies teacher. She and her husband Jerry then served cross-culturally for ten+ years, living abroad first in India and then Kurdistan, N. Iraq. In addition to being a Spiritual Director, she now serves as a Formation and Care pastor in her local church in Houston, TX. She has graduated from LTI’s Selah Spiritual Direction training as well as LTI’s Emmaus Formational Leadership Program.

Mitzi enjoys engaging conversation, reading fiction, doing jigsaw/crossword puzzles, ocean gazing and exploring the world with Jerry through food and travel.

God has two main callings in Mitzi’s life: to care for those who care for others and to be a guide in helping others have a healthy relationship with the Trinity – recognizing God’s loving presence and activity in their lives and how to faithfully respond.

Selah was a transformative experience for me – allowing the contemplative within to emerge and to beautifully co-exist with my extraverted personality.
