A non—refundable registra- tion fee of $75 is required to secure a reservation. Each MarriageRestored weekend is conducted by a team of couples who have been trained to present the weekend pro- gram. These presenting couples have experienced disillusionment, pain, an- ger, and conflict in their own marriage. Team couples have found hope for their own marriages in this ministry and offer it to others as well. One couple that at- tended a weekend recently had this to say, “We cannot say enough about this pro- gram. We were on a one way -"Ztétl £9" definition .111 our and were in deep and ugly custody battle over our daughter. Upon completing the program, we immediately dropped the divorce and be- came a complete family again.” MarriageRestored is a non-profit, entirely self.—, supporting ministry.
