If You Live Here Locally...

Here are some cool things going on in our town:

PURSE PARTY TONIGHT

(for Heartline Ministries)


Last night I took the kids to Com Church to listen to the Livesay family. I've mentioned them several times on this blog. Troy Livesay spoke about the women's program at Heartline in Haiti. Their goal: teach women about the Lord, teach them to read, teach them skills, empowering them to provide for their children. I am very excited to share the work Heartline does tonight, celebrate these women, and pray over their lives.

MWANGAZA CHILDREN'S CHOIR

THIS Tuesday, February 16
7:00-8:30

Life Church


THIS IS A FREE SHOW TO SEE AN INCREDIBLE UGANDAN PERFORMANCE!

Mwangaza is the Swahili word for “shining light.” Mwangaza Children’s Choir is dedicated to sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ through song, dance and testimony, The group, based in Ggaba, Uganda, tours for Africa Renewal Ministries (ARM) to raise awareness and resources for churches, schools, orphanages, medical clinics and child sponsorships.

Check out their website to learn more about them.

We can't wait to hear these kids sing!

MASTERPIECE CONFERENCE



February 26-27
For girls ages 17-25
Registration is still open.
Check out the website for all the details.

I am extremely excited to spend the weekend with so many college girls I love. Cameron, Kirby and I will be serving in Part of the Solution. Come say hi if you're coming to Masterpiece!

I must say...I'm very impressed with this conference. What a beautiful display of creativity and how to use the gifts God has given women for His honor and fame. I'm also thrilled at how "outside of us" this conference is going to challenge young women to think. How exciting for women at a young age to learn to think globally. God is going to use this generation to do such beautiful kingdom work.
