Rachel's Vineyard Weekend Retreats Healing the pain of abortion... one weekend at a time.

Rachel's Vineyard in Hawaii offers a beautiful opportunity for healing to any woman or man struggling with the emotional and spiritual pain of an abortion. The confidential weekend retreats focus on God’s love and mercy in a safe, supportive, and non-judgmental environment.  All who seek peace and inner healing are welcome!  Join us on October 21-23, 2011 at a private retreat center in Honolulu. A suggested donation of $100 covers accommodations, 7 delicious and healthy meals, beverages and snacks, and all materials. Scholarships are available for those in need. To register, please contact:  Lisa Shorba at (808) 349-5071 or email:  RVinHawaii@gmail.com.   Also visit us online at: www.rachelsvineyard.org.  Testimonials of former Hawaii participants: “This experience was life-changing for me!   It freed me of the grief and guilt I carried for over 30 years.  Even though I thought I was "tough" or "over it," nothing helped me or healed me more than my attending the RV Retreat.”  (May 2010).    "My husband and I both attended the retreat last May.  We both agree that it brought us closer to God and to each other.  We received healing on so many levels.  The love, warmth, and confidentiality were superb!" (May 2010). "The silent suffering, grief and shame that I was secretly holding deep inside my heart was finally released after participating in the RV weekend retreat.  A profound healing occurred in my relationship with God and my aborted children, and I felt truly forgiven for the first time in my life. I was really afraid to go, but I am so glad I went. I encourage every woman to consider giving herself this gift of healing and self love." (May 2011).
