“This retreat has changed my life.”

On December 7, 2018, 40 people with HIV from SE DC and beyond gathered together for a rejuvenating retreat. The weekend started with introductions followed by the assignment of prayer buddies. Each participant drew the name of another participant from a hat, and throughout the weekend each participant left notes of encouragement for their buddy, and/or made a special arts/crafts project for their buddy. This is always a highlight of the retreat!
