The Theme for this year’s Oasis Retreat at Valley View Bible Camp is focused on restoring the joy of our salvation. Designed for women in ministry, our purpose for this retreat is to be renewed as we spend time in God’s Word, learning that in every season God has a plan and wants to show Himself to us. Whatever our circumstance may be, we can be renewed as God restores to us the salvation that He has so graciously given to us. Whether you are a full-time missionary, pastor’s wife, or serving in a support role, come for a weekend of rest and renewal as we look to God as our all in all.
Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me. Restore unto me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit to sustain me. Psalm 51:10-12
Our speaker for the weekend will be Angela Kruse. We encourage you to read her bio below.
Angela grew up near Rosenort, Manitoba where she is currently living with her husband Rolf and five children. Angela has been a full-time missionary with SIM (Serving In Mission) for the past 20 years, serving in Sudanese refugee camps and among tribal people in Ethiopia.
Angela and her family returned to Manitoba last year for a sabbatical study year and to take time for rest and renewal after Angela and her husband experienced significant compassion fatigue. During this past year, Angela has been learning the necessity of soul care for spiritual and physical restoration.
Angela is passionate about sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ with the least reached, and discipling women and young people into active ministry.
Angela loves being surrounded by God’s creation, times of solitude, and being actively engaged with her family in sports (swimming, biking, volleyball), in the home, in ministry, and in God’s Word. She loves freshly roasted coffee and cooking Ethiopian cuisine.
