Women's Retreat Testimony


-----Original Message-----
From: Wattscarol1962
To: Theresa Russell

Subject: The Love Dare

Hello My Sweet Theresa.......On last year after leaving the Retreat, I was on a spiritual high for about 3 months. The experience was so powerful. About two weeks after i got home i purchased Redeeming Love. I read the book over the next two weeks and that put me back on that spiritual high even more.               About a month after reading the book, one of my fellow MMC members called me and asked me to be one of the character in a stage play that they were about to start rehearsing for called, 'The Love Dare'. (She had already asked me about 6 months before and i told her, probably not). So I told her, well maybe. Then i asked her, 'What is the play about'? She said, 'It's on the book of Hosea, the story of Hosea and Gomer. I was at work but boy did I want to shout. Then I asked her, 'Well, What part do you want me to play' and she said, I want you to play GOMER. And I said, "YES I WILL".  LOL!!!                                    Our first performance was September 17 in McComb Ms. The play was PHENOMENAL. So many people asked us if we would continue to do the play because it was so inspirational. Our second performance was Oct 23 in Brookhaven Ms and we got the same response. So on Sunday October 30 we presented, 'The Love Dare' to Morning Star. The response has been so overwhelming. I have received so much love from people I know and people I don't know. BoBo posted some pictures on facebook and I want you to go and read some of the comments.                                                                                       If it had not been for the retreat, I never would have agreed to do the play. I just want to thank you for unknowingly giving me that push i needed to do it.                   

                                                                      I invited Phaedra and Willie Jean to come and they did. When I got home Phaedra text me a whole lot of wonderful things and she said,"talk to Aunt Theresa about this play and i'll talk to her also. Yall need to take this play to Minnesota LOL!  I LOVE YOU!
