We want to thank you for the time we spent at your home. It was a very restful, peaceful and renewing time. Thank you Jill and Randy for not only providing a peaceful, quiet retreat but also for your hospitality, prayers and caring concern. God is blessing others through your ministry. May you be richly blessed in return.
I just spent 10 days at Forest Haven. I hadn’t been away for a ministry break in a year, and I slept alot, spent time with the Lord, listened to Randy and Jill’s wonderful CD collection, and appreciated reading “A Guide to Prayer for Ministers and Other Servants”. It was a special time for solitude, and wonderful conversations with Randy and Jill. They are kind-hearted and good listeners.
My wife and I needed a place to rest and recharge before resuming our ministry in the fall. Forest Haven provided just what we were looking for. The Thompsons are gracious hosts striking just the right balance between offering personal interaction on the one hand and leaving alone on the other. The accommodations are comfortable and the surrounding area full of life and beauty.

Come apart and draw near to the Lord. The beautiful property draws one to his/her creator. The unit is beautiful. The books given point to Jesus. Don’t miss dinner, prayer and fellowship with Randy and Jill. God speaks through them in refreshing and encouraging ways.
Thanks for providing this haven! We’re leaving here feeling very rested. May God continue to use you and your home to bless others.

I’m excited about the ministry of Forest Haven and now having seen it personally, will be a banner-waver for you! And most importantly, I’ll be a prayer warrior with you. Thank you for your kindness and hospitality while I was in NH… it was a wonderful evening and so good to freshen our friendship!

What a wonderful experience I had this weekend! Your hospitality was authentic. I’ve enjoyed the food and fellowship tremendously. The environment within and without was pleasant and the suite was immaculate! I truly rested and enjoyed the reading resources. Thanks for letting God use you both in such a powerful way. I will be back and will recommend Forest Haven to my colleagues! I will continue to pray for the prosperity of your ministry.

We so want to thank you for our stay with you. I have thought about it often. Your call and gifting to give pastors a break is so wonderful– so appreciative–so godly.

We are so blessed to have met you both and received your loving hospitality. It’s wonderful to have this place to come to for rest. Thank you for listening and obeying.

This place is so lovely! Tastefully decorated (down to the leaf-covered tissue boxes!) and immaculately clean. It has obviously been prepared by caring hands expressing the love of Christ. Your devotion to Christ is seen in your offering such a haven to burdened and weary soldiers of Christ for their refreshment and encouragement. Thank you kindly for making your hospitality available to us… God be with you in this ministry.
