The Middle Florida Baptist Association Women’s Missionary Union (WMU) held their annual prayer retreat. The retreat is held annually at Camp Pickett Lake in Lafayette County. The camp was donated to the Middle Florida Baptist Association by the late Delmar and Minnie Sapp of Mayo. The Sapps had no children of their own but saw a need for a Youth Camp. Hundreds of children are ministered to at this camp every year. The prayer retreat began with Mary Anne Wicker, Betty Wood and WMU Association Director, Shirley Faglie, at the registration table. Mrs. Faglie offered the welocme, with Janet Bailey and her friend, Lynne Brown, presenting the devotion. Mary Anne Wicker entertained with a time of fun and games. This was followed by Lynne Sapp leading several great songs. Faglie introduced the speaker of the day, Cindy Braswell of Umatilla. The theme of Braswell’s speech was “Battle for Her Soul” and she offered her personal testimony. Her ministry is known as the Sonflower International Ministry. Between songs, messages and the meal, several door prizes were given to those who had the right number when it was called. Faglie presented the prayer emphasis. The 35 ladies were then divided into groups and given a poster board to write out prayer requests. These poster boards were tacked on trees around the lake area. Following the meal, a prayer walk, which ended at the camp chapel, was held. Sandy Ryan then led a responsive reading, which was followed by more music led by Lynne Sapp. Braswell came again and gave the afternoon message, which was followed by a chance for the ladies to give their personal testimonies. Faglie dismissed the prayer retreat with closing remarks and a prayer.
