Allegheny East Conference Shepherdess Retreat
The Allegheny East Conference territory is so wide. The retreat held in 2011 offered a wonderful opportunity for the young wives to meet each other, some for the first time. 

The attendees represented the diverse conference: Hispanic, Korean, Romanian, French, Indonesian, Nigerian and African American women, all bonding together. One great spontaneous moment brought hotel guests running when each language group stood to sing "Happy Birthday" in their own language to one of the the ladies whose birthday was that day.
