I serve on Rachel's Vineyard because it is effective. As a therapist, I have seen emotional healing in my years of clinical practice, but never have I seen the degree of pain and fragility presented when candidates arrive on this retreat. Yet, never have I witnessed this pain transformed into a joy and a strength as it does time and time again on this healing ministry. I love being a part of Rachel's Vineyard. It is my honour and privilege to serve the women and men who have the courage to heal.
