CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, March 27 - April 2, 1998 - 29 Rehoboth's Sea Voice Inn is now home of retreat ministry Susie and Jeff Bond, along with Cara Wilson, want to spread the word on their Retreat Ministry. The Bonds moved to Rehoboth Beach in 1993 in what they say was a spiritual call and opened the Sea Voice Inn, a Bed and Break- fast and Retreat House, according to the establishment's brochure. The couple left Bethesda, Md., and a higher income to answer the call. "We're much less wealthy, but much, much richer," said Jeff Bond. Theinn operates in two modes: Bed and Breakfast and Group. In the B & B mode, the Bonds hope their lives and message touch the guests who come to stay at their inn, and sometimes, Jeff says, the guests touch their lives. "So often, as we seek to serve, we find our- selves being served." Cara Wilson, the "do-every- thing" manager of the Sea Voice, can often be found sitting and talking to guests during their sub- stantial breakfast meal. "As we talk to guests," Wilson said, "we can often feel the Holy Spirit making a connection. The feeling of gratification to our Lord some- times brings me to tears." The second mode is one the Bonds are trying to develop - that of a group mode and especially re- treats. While groups of all kinds are welcome, including family re- unions and office groups, the Bonds especially enjoy church re- treats. Most of the church groups come from Maryland, Pennsylva- nia and New Jersey, but the cou- ple is now seeking to reach out to the church groups and religious organizations of Delmarva. Susie, who holds a bachelor of arts degree in Christian education and a master's degree in educa- tion, has been leading retreats since 1992 on many varied sub- jects, including prayer, hope and forgiveness. She is able to design weekend sessions to suit specific group needs and schedules. There are several retreats sched- uled at the Sea Voice, including the upcoming "Marriage and Communication," April 17- 19. The fee for the retreat is $215. It will be facilitated by the Rev. Deryl Fleming and Kathy Mur- phy, a husband and wife team with many years experience in public speaking and pastoral care.
