The annual Missouri District Ladies Conference was held at
the Springfield Expo Center in Springfield, Missouri on April 25-27, 2019. The theme was Journey – Looking for a
Kathy Hernandez was our evening speaker. She shared her heart, worshipped in song as
she played the saxophone, and prayed with people in the altar to receive their
healing, and receive the Holy Ghost.
Melinda Poitras was our day speaker.
She had a beautiful way of sharing her message with humor and wit. Although it was her first time to speak to a
Missouri Ladies Conference, she made an immediate connection with the ladies
that made them anxious to listen to what she had to say.
Shauna Hord, and a group of ladies from across the state, led
us into worship in each service. Her
choice of songs made it easy to join in and sing. Her anointed leading ushered us into the
presence of the Lord.
On Friday night we celebrated the churches who had given to
Mothers Memorial last year and challenged the ladies to help us to reach our
2019 goal of $119,000.00. We raised $9,852.09
in the offering that night.
Saturday’s brunch was a change in our usual format, but it
was a wonderful time of fellowship.
Michelle Hopper and her team had it beautifully decorated and the ladies
enjoyed the elegant atmosphere as they savored their breakfast meal. An abundance of prizes with the journey theme
were given away including watches, purses, and home décor.
A fun touch to this year’s event was the golf cart shuttle
service with their “Taxi Cab” signs.
Several men volunteered their time to be the drivers of the two rented
golf carts that shuttled the ladies from the hotel and parking areas to the
Next year’s Ladies Conference “In His Image” will be held on April 23-25, 2020. The special speakers will be Janet Trout and Lisa Doughty.

We started with $9,379.31 in our Mothers Memorial Kick-off Service on Friday night of Ladies Conference in April. Ladies across the state began their fundraising efforts in a variety of ways. Together we raised $105,000.00! We say a special thanks to each one of you!
