By LAURA MAZOCH

Remnant Women Attend Retreat

On Feb. 20-21 about 50 women from The Remnant Church attended the 26th National Women’s Retreat in Columbus. This year’s theme was The Father and His Daughter. The retreat featured Kellie Copeland Swisher (daughter of Kenneth and Gloria Copeland) and Pastor Rachel Burchfield of Burchfield Ministries. The women arrived at 5 pm on Friday night ready to enjoy a great service. Desserts and coffee followed after the service. The next morning, Pastor Rachel Burchfield spoke 
on the Miracle Mall. The women went “shopping” at the Miracle Mall and learned that our Father has paid for everything (Ephesians). After lunch, students from Texas Bible Institute showcased their talents with amazing performances. It was truly a great time of refreshing, fellowship, and revival.
