This year’s Renovo (a retreat for female younger leaders in Europe) in Bulgaria turned out to be very small due to sicknesses, flight cancellations, babies and COVID, but we are so grateful we pulled through.

This has been our third time offering this. It started in 2019 when Evi had the dream to offer something for younger women in Europe. Wonderfully, God provided incredible girls to join the team and get it organised.

A huge thank you to Tammy West Lundell for the joint endeavour and leading our sessions on “Listening to God”. Tammy serves as a missionary in Italy but offers various things on spiritual formation. Evi and her originally connected through the Mission-Net congresses when Tammy still served in Romania. Evi did a session on development stages in leadership, leaning on the book from Robert Clinton.

Amazing Bulgarian food, sauna, jacuzzi, fellowship, laughter, hikes, stretching time, listening to God, meditating Scripture, nature, sunshine were all included.

This year we were 5 girls from Bulgaria, Germany and Italy. Hoping that many more will be joining next year but nevertheless, we feel very grateful and blessed.

Thanks so much to Ivan Minchev for all the extra miles driving the girls to and from airports.

Plans are underway for the next Renovo from 21-24 September 2023, back in Bulgaria. Interested? Then please shoot us an email.
