Oh, I wish I could go.. and I will be praying that God uses it in a mighty way. What great topics! I know that satan will try to throw as many roadblocks as he can at this, so I'll be praying extra hard that along with being organizers, you'll also be fully equipped to be an overcomer. This is so awesome!

Mary said...


It sounds great. I hope attendance is good. I'm sure it will be enjoyable. Unfortunately, Florida is a long way from here. I would love to attend.

Hope you have a great week.
