As of today, 8/30, we are canceling The Getaway this year. We're very sorry to have to cancel the retreat, but strongly believe it is the wisest decision at this point, as key leaders have been affected by the hurricane. Please pray especially for Brenda Lyles and her church, South Main Baptist in Pasadena, TX, as she works tirelessly to help those in her church and community whose lives have been turned upside-down from the flooding. Here's a note from Brenda:
We go from house to house of church members taking out carpet and then cutting out sheetrock. Our church is a donation place. We take the goods all over the pasadena area to shelters. We've also had 20-25 Cajun army guys staying at the church. We're feeding them, washing clothes etc. We're just doing what everyone else is doing. Everyone is helping and everyone is exhausted.
I would never cancel on you but I think you are making a very wise decision. This will free me up to work with flood victims and concentrate on needs here. Thanks to you (all) for thinking of me! I am honored and happy to share how the Lord has used us and blessed us over and over.
This week, we will refund those who have already registered for the retreat. Please let us know if you don't receive yours. Also, we'd love for you to keep in touch with P320, and we hope to see you at More '18!
This Platform 320 event is open to any wife who is married to someone in ministry, including pastors, worship leaders, student ministers, collegiate ministry directors, seminary professors, Christian camp directors, directors of missions (DOM), and more. Come alone or bring other ministry wives with you!

Cost: $100/person. Includes motel-style lodging with 2 queen beds in each room (2 people per room), 3 meals, and a great program that begins at 6:00 pm on Friday and ends at 2:00 pm on Saturday.
