Central USA Mission Center staff would like to extend a thank you to each and every one of you who made the Spring Central USA Mission Center Conference the amazing success that it was this year. The vision our presenters gave us of the impact of the women of Community of Christ past, present, and beyond the horizon was remarkable. The feelings of being together once again celebrating and worshiping was just what so many of our members needed. We are beyond grateful for the ministry that was provided by so many during our time together. From the ladies who shared during the presentations, Ethan and Chad Godfrey's music, and Gaylen Davenport's planning and presiding over the ordination service was, as many described, as the best mission center conference they have ever been to. Additionally, your generous donations allowed us to deliver 42 bags for women, 10 bags for children, and 5 bags for men to Hope House. None of this could have happened without each of our members coming together and for that we are incredibly thankful. We are looking forward to the future and all it has in store for us. Thank you, again, to all that were involved in the conference and all who attended in person and online.
