Greetings ASI Members and Friends,

I hope this communication finds you well!

As many of you are aware, the ASI 70th Anniversary Convention is being held in Houston, Texas, August 2-5, at the George R. Brown Convention Center.  If you have not registered, please visit ASI Ministries to register. As always, this year's convention will be filled with wonderful music, inspirational speakers, and dynamic workshops. There is still hotel space available at both the Hilton Americas and the downtown Marriott. Hotel information can be obtained through the ASI corporate website ASI Ministries. Expo volunteers who desire to attend the ASI Convention for the first time will receive a first-time attendee discount.

Health Expo Volunteer Opportunity
On Wednesday, August 2, ASI will sponsor a health expo for the Houston community.  The expo will feature stations that will inform participants about the eight laws of health and will also include vision and oral health screenings. In addition, participants will be offered free haircuts and massages.  
We need 200 volunteers to make the event successful.  To volunteer, you may register at the following link: Volunteer sign-upAll expo volunteers will receive a free T-shirt. Snacks will be available for volunteers, as well.

Also, there will be an opportunity to participate in an outreach to distribute Glow tracts and health expo invitation flyers on Tuesday, August 1.  Information regarding the specific time and location will be made available next week. Meanwhile, if you are interested in volunteering for this activity, please Send us an email.

Southwest Chapter Luncheon
We would like to extend an invitation to attend our Southwestern Union ASI Chapter luncheon, which will be held on Thursday, August 3, at noon.  Please e-mail us at asisouthwest@swuc.org and let us know if you will be in attendance.  This year's speaker will be Pastor Ron Woolsey, pastor of the Clinton and Marshall Seventh-day Adventist churches in Arkansas, and co-director/co-founder of Coming Out Ministries.

Welcome, New Members!
Our chapter is growing! We would like to welcome those of you who have joined ASI this year. Please encourage eligible friends to partner with ASI by becoming members and "Sharing Christ in the Marketplace."

Prayer Requests
As many of you may have heard, Brent Palmer, husband of Brenda Palmer, ASI vice president for finance, and co-owner of Palmer Handrail & Custom Millwork, was involved in a serious head-on collision last week and is currently hospitalized in Lubbock, Texas. Please pray for Brent and his family, petitioning the Lord for strength and a speedy and complete recovery.

Finally, please keep the convention and health expo in your prayers and pray that ASI reaches many souls for the Lord this year!  We look forward to seeing you in August!
 
Blessings,
 
Dawn A. Lewis
President, ASI Southwest Chapter
