More Quotes From 2022 COL Attendees:

About the Holy Spirit

“I laughed, I cried, I worshipped, but most of all I was in the presence of the Holy Spirit with so many beautiful people of different ages which is so good to see God working in His Mysterious Ways!).”

“I attended because I needed a different direction in my life and  mission accomplished. The Holy Spirit was alive, well and very much present!”

“COL is a chance to step out of our everyday lives, relax and soak up the Lord! You are recharged and ready to bring the Holy Spirit back into your everyday attitude.”
