ASI Southwest Chapter Newsletter
July 27, 2017

Greetings ASI Southwest Members and Friends,
 
We are a little less than one week away from the 70th annual ASI Convention, which is being held August 2-5 at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, Texas.  The Southwest chapter is very excited that the convention is being held in our region, and our chapter members will be very actively involved in this event.
 
ASI Health Expo

For the first time, ASI is hosting a pre-convention Health Expo on Wednesday, August 2, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The expo will feature eight stations correlating with the NEWSTART acronym and will offer additional screenings, including vision screening, oral health screening, and pelvic floor biofeedback screenings. The event will also offer free haircuts at the Barber and Beauty station.  The Houston area churches are lending a lot of support, for which we are very grateful. We are prayerful that the event will draw many people who will receive screening, counseling, education, and the message of hope through Jesus Christ at the various stations. If you would like to volunteer for this event, you can still do so by registering at Health Expo Volunteer Registration.
 
Outreach Opportunity

An outreach activity is planned from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Tuesday, August 1, in downtown Houston, to meet the community and distribute GLOW tracts and flyers inviting community members to Wednesday's Expo. We will leave the Convention Center at 3 p.m. and return by 5 p.m.  If you would like to be a part of this exciting outreach opportunity, please e-mail asisouthwest@swuc.org.
 
Chapter Luncheon on Thursday

As always, our chapter will host a luncheon, where you will have an opportunity to meet and greet other chapter members, invite prospective new members, and exchange ideas on sharing Christ in your marketplace. The luncheon will be held on Thursday, August 3, at 12 noon at The Hilton Americas in the Ballroom of the Americas A, on the second floor.  If you would like to attend, please e-mail us at asisouthwest@swuc.org   by 5:00 p.m., Friday July 28th, 2017 so we can have an accurate head count for the caterers.  A ticket is required to attend the luncheon, and you will need to pick up your complimentary ticket(s) from the ASI Southwest Chapter booth, number 209, in the Exhibit Hall. This year, our luncheon speaker will be Pastor Ron Woolsey, who will share exciting developments regarding his ministry and the newly-released movie Journey Interrupted. 

I f you have not yet registered for the convention, there is still time. If you are an expo volunteer who will be a first-time attendee to ASI, you will be able to register for $65.00 on site.  Even if you are returning, please come out and enjoy the wonderful worship services, presentations and seminars, as well as the sweet fellowship of old and new friends. Additionally, you will have a chance to witness the marvelous things the Lord is doing through ASI members across the world.  We look forward to seeing you there!
 
May God bless you richly,
 
Dawn A. Lewis
President, ASI Southwest Chapter
