“Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever
and ever. Amen” Ephesians 3:20-21
We had our FamilyLife Staff Conference in Little Rock in July. The theme for the conference was “Beyond” and is from Ephesians 3:20-21. It was great to see staff members we don’t usually see and meet new staff, as well.
During the conference Mark and I had the privilege of working 2 days with internationals from 26 countries. It was exciting to hear how God is at work in people’s marriages and families all around the world.
We made new friends with a couple from Korea, Daniel and Rebecca
In our event department FamilyLife is in the process of developing Weekend to Remember Next. We don’t know if that will be the official name but our event is going through a over haul. We have been listening to our attendees and therefore some changes are being made.
They will do two test cities this fall and five in the spring. All the planners are asked go and observe one of these events so they can give feedback and better understand their responsibilities for the event.
Now it’s time to gear up for the fall getaways! Mark will spend a few days at the warehouse with all the planners helping to get the equipment ready to travel.
Our fall schedule is...
Estes Park, CO 1 (Nov. 2-4)
Estes Park, CO 2 (Nov 9-11)
St. Louis, MO (Dec. 7-9)
Enclosed is a fall getaway brochure with all the cities and dates. Also, enclosed is a gift certificate to attend a Weekend to Remember getaway of your choice for only $39 per person (if you have partnered with us for $100 or more this year). This is one way we are able to thank you for serving with us!!!
“We do not cease giving thanks for you, while making mention
of you in our prayers.” Ephesians 1:16
All for His glory,
Mark and Linda
