My mother in law is taking me and my 2 sisters in law to a conference.
It's called Win-Some-Women.
It's a Christian conference and the keynote speaker is Tony Campolo and
Gracia Burnham- I didn't realize who this was until I looked at her info:
On May 27, 2001, while celebrating their 18th wedding anniversary at Dos Palmas Resort off PalawanIsland, in the Philipines, Gracia and Martin Burnham were kidnapped by the Abu Sayyaf Group (ASG), a militant group of Muslims. They were taken to BasilanIsland, an ASG stronghold. Remaining in captivity for 376 days, the Burnhams faced near starvation, constant exhaustion, frequent gun battles, coldhearted murder, and intense soul-searching about a God who sometimes seemed to have forgotten them. On June 7, 2002, in a firefight between the Philippine military and the Abu Sayyaf Group, Martin was killed and Gracia, although wounded, was rescued.
Selah is going to be performing at the conference as well. It should be such a good conference.
If that isn't enough- it's held at the Grand Hotel and we get to stay there! I've never been to the hotel before- it is so beautiful from the outside- I can't wait to see inside!
This will be such a nice little vacation- I hope Mark fares well being home with the kids by himself!!
