Richard and Jennifer needed a break. She works a stressful job
that includes a 50-minute drive twice a day to work and is an
associate pastor in charge of discipleship ministries at her church.
Richard is technically retired, but he’s just as busy as when he was a
teacher and coach.

He voluntarily maintains the lawn at their church, has begun
work on creating a soccer field behind the church, and volunteers in
the children’s ministry group inside the church.
Though they both love what they do, they realized they needed
to do something for themselves.

“When we heard that Susie Shellenberger Ministries was
offering a cruise, we were immediately interested,” Jennifer says.
“The idea of getting away and enjoying an adventure at sea PLUS the
added bonus of special services on the ship with Susie” sounded like
not only an amazing vacation, but a spiritual retreat as well.”

Richard and Jennifer came on the cruise. “We made new
friends, loved the off-shore excursions and grew spiritually from the
ministry sessions,” Richard says. “It was really fun!”

“The food was terrific—as always on a cruise—and the ship’s
shows were a lot of fun, too,” Jennifer remembers. “But it was more
than just another cruise. The ministry sessions . . . the praise and
worship and hearing new messages from Susie are what made it a
notch above. It was exactly what we needed.

“Susie Shellenberger Ministries always has a “Talent Only a
Mother Could Love Show” on the last day at sea,” Jennifer says. “It’s
hilarious . . . and as you can imagine . . . full of ‘talent’ that truly only a
mother could love! Richard got talked into entering and even walked
away with the first-place prize of $100!”

“It was probably one of the most fun vacations we’ve ever had,”
he says. “And what made it unique was the spiritual growth aspect
added to the whole thing.”
