Women from all over Western Nebraska gathered April 27-28 for Oregon Trail Baptist Association Women’s Retreat at Calvary Baptist Church in North Platte, Neb.

Marty Savely, pastor’s wife from Lodgepole, was the key note speaker on the topic of the Holy Spirit. Linda Logsdon was the worship leader. She is executive director of the North Platte Women’s Resource Center. Many other ladies led breakout sessions.

One lady said, “I have been a Christian for years and never personally experienced the Holy Spirit like this.” The Bible study and personal application made the presence of the Holy Spirit real in her life.

The retreat was made up of long-time participants as well was first-timers.
