Two Weeks Notice




Is it just me or does anyone else think this looks fun?  As many of you know I am hosting The Wanted Campference on October 17-20 out at the H. E. Butt Foundation Camp.  If you know anything about HEB and the Butt family they do everything with excellence, so this is a big deal and I want it to go well.   I have had this on my heart for many years.  It has changed names, changed focus and changed locations.  I can not think of a better place than out at camp to draw nearer to God.  Whenever I am there I certainly do, so I am wanting others to experience the same.
So if you have been to camp as a kid, like to go to retreats where everything is all inclusive and you get to connect with other women then this is the compference for you.  You may just need the time away, but whatever reason I hope you will consider coming.  I also don't want to beg, but we are so close.  I will say that because of planning, I will have to put a deadline for signing up, September 15th, and if we don't have enough people I will be forced to cancel it.  You must sign up before this date, please!

So here is the enticing agenda and menu for the days spent at The Wanted Campference.
1. Set in the beautiful Hill Country of Texas, in Leakey, TX, at the H. E. Butt Foundation Camp, Echo Valley campsite.  http://laityrenewal.org for pictures of the camp.
