LORANGER – Nearly 400 women were expected last Saturday, Sept. 15, at Camp Living Waters, for a Spa Day Getaway led by Bible Study Leader Rebecca Hughes, Vocalist Katie Boudreaux and Comedian Kathy Frady.
“I’m having to close off registrations,” said Jane Wasson, administrative assistant, on Thursday. “We can’t safely take any more at this time.”
Registrations had been received from as far as Pineville and Barataria, with most being from the New Orleans and Northshore areas, Wasson said.
“One of the board members was saying this is one of the biggest events Camp Living Waters has ever had,” Wasson added.
Spa Day had its debut last May at the BAGNO offices in New Orleans. It’s a day of Spirit-enriched worship, laughter and Hughes’ practical biblical insights, powdered by the kind of pampering women long for, but rarely give themselves.
Hughes’ Katrina-inspired book, Winds of Hope: Healing Devotions for Life’s Storms, is to be published Nov. 1 by New Hope Publishing.
The trio plans another reteat at Camp Living Waters – it’s set for Nov. 17-18 – based on the book’s theme of hope.
“The weekend will be Look at us now! and will focus on celebrating the hope and healing God has brought since Katrina,” Hughes wrote in a recent email. “It’s open to any women of Louisiana or the surrounding area.”
