Forest Haven lived up to its vision–it was certainly a peaceful and restful place where I met the Lord in a fresh way. The Thompsons are wonderful hosts who blessed me with their loving welcome and hospitality as well as a delicious meal. Every little touch in the beautifully appointed apartment spoke of God’s grace and His care. I look forward to my next retreat here.
We visited again briefly last week. I was reminded of what a quiet, peaceful and comfortable place Forest Haven is. It’s a great opportunity for people in ministry to get away and get recharged.
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!

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.
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.
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.

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.

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.
