"When I went to the last Encounter weekend the Lord revealed to me that I had built up a wall around my heart because of the way that I had been treated by certain men in my life. The problem was that in my efforts to protect myself by keeping men out, my wall was also keeping God from coming closer. I overcame my fear of being abused again and walked away with a new openness to relationship. God also ministered to me in the areas of forgiveness and rejection. I am so thankful for what I received at the Encounter weekend."
