Greetings on this new month of April - the month of our CWC State Convention which is April 29th and 30th in Grand Rapids at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel on 28th Street.
During the month of March I have been in contact with both our convention speaker, Bonita Laudeman and our worship leader, Ellsworth Jackson. They are both looking forward to our CWC Convention. The theme "Peace" for our convention is so timely and appropriate for all of the things going on in our world today!! The scripture that goes with our theme is taken from Colossians 3:15a "And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts. . ." NLT Please remember that you still have time to get your registrations in! The deadline date for getting those registrations in is Thursday, April 7th!! Please plan to come to make sure these State Conventions will continue to happen year after year!
I received a mailing from the National CWC office in Anderson, Indiana promoting the National Convention in Daytona Beach, Florida, October 26th to 29th in 2017. They were reminding us to get our registration of $150.00 in to them by December 31st of this year - 2016! After that date your registration amount will go up.
On March 11 and the 24th I spoke to both Sherman and Kay Critser. Kay had knee surgery the end of February. She has been taking Physical Therapy, but her knee is still pretty stiff. Please hold up in prayer, both of our missionaries - Sherman and Kay Critser serving in Nebraska with the Native American Ministry and Bobby and Jenny Mihsill serving in Cote d'Ivoire on the Ivory Coast of Africa! I will have picture/prayer cards available at our convention of both of these missionary couples that our state CWC help to support.
May the Lord richly bless you as you continue to serve the Lord and the Christian Women Connection.
Looking forward to seeing you at convention!
My love, Ann Hawkins, President
Michigan Christian Women Connection
