A Week at the Institute.

God is fun.

Let me just start with that, because it's true! He's faithful, loving, and comes through in ways we just don't quite expect it- and it's always good.

A few months ago, E.D. Cindy Brengosz and myself qualified and applied for a scholarship to attend the Pregnancy Help Institute hosted by Heartbeat International at their headquarters in Ohio. On a crazy Thursday afternoon just before close, I took the call that not just Cindy, but both of us were accepted to the Institute.

I had a very hard time remaining professional and waiting for her meeting to be completed before sharing the good news. We were going to Ohio!!

So what did the scholarship entail? It included five days of Institute training with a small, intimate group of participants, meals, transport from hotel to HQ and back, and lodging.

It sounds basic, but it was one of the most inspiring and equipping conferences we've been too. The Institute was so well designed. It covered every aspect of who we are in pregnancy help ministry. We were educated in organizational practices, ministered to spiritual, inspired by God's movement across the country and around the world, and felt a bit on vacation as we ate some of the best snacks and meals, as well as fully enjoyed a super nice hotel stay.

Seriously, it was everything we didn't really know we needed. We're so thankful for Heartbeat for the opportunity to attend. Both Cindy and I are ready to hit the ground running with our team, and serve Central Wisconsin.

But wait, there's more. Because God is really fun.
