2. A Kinywanda bible is $10.00
3. A treadle sewing machine with training to use it is $250.00 (this allows a widow or a pastor’s wife to have a job with a regular income)

Main session speakers:
Friday evening: Jeannie Vogel will be sharing: Facing an Uncertain Future with Faith: Practice makes Perfect.
The world with all its problems can be a scary place, but we don’t have to hide from bad headlines or fear bad leaders. We can learn to face them both fearlessly once we truly know God and begin to hear His voice and trust His promises. Just like learning any skill, we need to practice our faith in small challenges so we can grow to be women of strong faith when faced with the challenges that lie ahead. After all the future is only uncertain to us, but certainly not to our Sovereign God.
Bio: Jeannie Vogel is a Jesus follower, Pastor’s wife mentor, 5 kid survivor, tennis player, Bible study writer,calorie counter, Bible lover who recently received her Masters in Biblical Studies. Married to Dr. Jim Vogel for 39 years, she currently works beside him in the Northeast Fellowship of Independent Baptist Churches as Women’s and Senior Adult Ministries Coordinator. She has worked at various jobs from part time college prof to Women’s Ministry Consultant for RBP. Her main role has been pastor’s wife, mom, and Bible teacher for 35 years, but Jeannie also speaks at women’s conferences in the US and other countries. She has published three Bible studies. Meeting Jesus in the Gospel of John for beginning Bible students, Our Sovereign God: The Book of Ezra for more advanced Bible Studies, and Accepting the Challenge: Leadership Lessons from the Life of Moses for people in leadership. Her goal is to live 4GG- For God’s Glory.
Saturday morning: September McCarthy will be sharing Shaping Future Generations With Faith, What Is Your Imprint?
Does the generation of today look at those walking in faith ahead of them and wonder what it is that propels us to move forward? We all need to ask ourselves, “What is our imprint?” Our morning session with September McCarthy, will bring us together as one faith, fueling us to follow well, lead well, and to leave a powerful faith imprint wherever we go.
BIO: September is the founder and visionary behind Raising Generations Today. She works alongside her husband Dan of 26 years, as they humbly pray over raising Kingdom Builders that will leave their home and serve the Lord with all of their life. September has been homeschooling her children for 19 years and has watched two of her children get married this year. September is not only a mother to ten children, ages 24 to 5, but she now has a beautiful new granddaughter. September shares her heart for mothers in every season in her writing and speaking to many audiences. Her favorite place is with her family. Her vision and mission is to encourage families raise World Changers for the Lord and to encourage women to stay the course.

Saturday afternoon: Debbie Scott will be sharing Impacting a Hurting World with Faith.
When I think about how we can impact a hurting world with faith, I look to the Word of God. There are many examples of heroic faith. But one that is so rich with the fragrance of God’s grace is the story of Rahab. I love the Bible. I love how God uses everyday people and everyday circumstances to impact eternity. I love that God remembers Rahab because of her faith, not her past! Yet, He loves us enough to share where Rahab came from to give us hope that He can even use us in the grand scheme of things!
Bio: Debbie is a vibrant pastor’s wife who loves people and loves to laugh. She works beside her husband who is the Pastor at West Danby Baptist Church which has grown from a handful of people to a large congregation of hundreds due to their commitment to get involved in their community and accept people right where they are. She helps develop the Women’s Ministry at the church and facilitates Bible Studies. After Debbie and Bruce’s three children had grown up, they adopted two siblings from Africa which was a life changing experience. This year their daughter returned to Africa on a missions trip with the Scotts.
Ana Ayers Teaching Faith to Our Future Generation
Parenting consists of teaching our children from birth all the way through their teenage years. We will be studying together what God’s Word has to say about teaching our children to walk in faith. This workshop is for moms with children of all ages.
Jim Vogel Boast and You’re Toast: The Danger of Pride in a believers life.
What the Bible says about pride and humility- and why it matters in our homes, communities, and churches.
Marlene Burling Facing the Future After Losing Your Mate: There’s LIFE After Death!
How do you go on living when your husband is taken from you and you wish you could die yourself? Your life will never be the same; but God is the God of all comfort and wants us to live our life abundantly; even during the grieving process. Grieve we must; but we also need to go on living. (John 10:10) This workshop is not just for those ladies who are already widows, but for those who would like to be able to minister to widows and understand what they are going through; or for those who want to receive helpful information for themselves; because we never know when that loved one may be taken from us. We can face the future even while we are grieving.

Melanie Hammond Facing the Future with Purity: Hope for Struggling Women
Sexual sin is no longer just a man’s issue. Pornography, gender identity issues, and illicit sexual involvements among women have reached epidemic levels. As our culture becomes more distorted and confused on this issue, it is essential that we know how to biblically respond to those who are struggling with truth and compassion.
Judy King, Moderator Just for Pastor and Missionary Wives : Effective Ideas for Outreach Ministry for Large and Small Churches (Friday night only)
