Second Honeymoon & Singles Getaway Atlantis, Paradise Island Bahamas
We are praising God for a high impact, successful conference!
The Conference delivered fun in the sun, water adventures, life-changing training and a chance to fellowship with other singles. Couples reconnected with each other, rekindled the flame and spent time learning how to practice real love.
Attendees had a chance to shake off their travel cobwebs to the song “Happy” just before the opening session.
Some famous people were in the house. President Barak Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama, Dianna Ross, Stephen Curry and Lebron James, just to name a few. Okay, well not quite but close when attendees played the “Guess Who” ice breaker game during the Welcome Reception. “Hello My Name Is” tags were placed on each person’s back and there was fun and laughter to be had as they worked the room gathering clues from other attendees as to who they could possibly be. Everyone really enjoyed the lively music, sweet fellowship and tasty hors d’ oeuvres during the kick off night of the conference.
There were a host of workshops and general session that covered everything from living to please God, to how to manage your finances, to taking care of your temple.
Attendees enjoyed loads of free time to relax, have some fun in the sun, spend time with their honey, get to fellowship with other singles and explore all that the Atlantis had to offer!
The All White Banquet for Singles and Married Couples was enjoyed by all. Everyone looked lovely in their white and the splashes of color added excitement and originality to the nights events as a steel drum player welcomed attendees to the banquet area.
Married Couples got to experience their mates in a romantic setting as they enjoyed dinner, music and a powerful message all while seated at their table for two decked out with a single red rose and an intimate question just for them to discuss over dinner. Their evening was capped off with a renewal of vows ceremony and being serenaded by Willie Mae Haynes who sang “At Last”.
The Singles, not to be out done had some good ole fun engaging in lively conversation during Hot Topics and being entertained with a song from Devaney Mason and poetry by Deborah Fox. People were rolling on the floor with laughter as each table performed the following songs with a twist:
The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow sung in a childlike voice
Lean On Me performed as a heavy metal group
I Believe the Children Are Our Future turned into a country song…and
Beat It sung in Opera (hilarious!!!)
Married couples got a chance to fellowship with other married couples
New friendships were formed and
Marriages were revitalized
