I can’t say enough about the dedication and love that goes into each retreat led by Lynda and Terry Munroe and their outstanding retreat team!  Ottawa is blessed to have an amazing group of individuals who give of themselves and their talents to bring the retreat to life as they gently assist participants in opening their grief in a safe, protected, and truly sacred space.  You will find your hope, identity, and healing by the way they demonstrate the simplicity of invitation into the powerful arms of God’s love.  They have a natural way of sharing the supernatural and you will be blessed by their authenticity, approachability, and humility. This team is extraordinary and would go a thousand extra miles if needed,  to provide whatever will assist you in your journey.  I have been blessed by an enduring personal friendship with them and I highly recommend this site for a beautiful and life-changing Rachel’s Vineyard Retreat. So be not afraid!  You will be in capable and competent hands, who long to serve you in this time of grieving and show you a new way to see yourself and the God who loves you.

Rachel's Vineyard Retreats (RVR) are well designed weekend events that bring deep healing to both women and men suffering from the trauma and negative effects of abortion. The impact of RVR is deep healing and freedom. Participants will encounter the love of GOD through experiential exercises facilitated by a caring team of facilitators. I highly recommend RVR to anyone wanting to overcome the pain and suffering related to abortion.

We highly recommend Rachel’s Vineyard Retreats for abortion survivors. We have known Lynda & Terry Munroe for several years and appreciate how they lovingly minister healing to individuals and couples, and by employing Living Scriptures with their team. Clients that we have referred have given us very positive feedback about how the safe and confidential setting allowed major healing to take place during the weekend retreat.
