Greetings ASI Members and Friends,
Just a reminder to sign up for the ASI Southwest Spring Spiritual Retreat as soon as you can, as the early bird discount rate ends at midnight Tuesday, February 23. That's just 20 days away! The conference begins on Thursday, March 17 at 6:30 p.m., and concludes with a Sunday-morning prayer breakfast on March 20.
We have chosen a very pleasant place to relax and enjoy some "get-away time." La Torretta Lakeside Resort is a beautiful place to have the conference and relax with your family. It is just about 50 minutes northeast of the Houston Intercontinental Airport. The address is 600 La Torretta Blvd., Montgomery, TX 77356.
However, to me, much more important than the pleasant location is the spiritual blessing we expect to receive. Steve Wohlberg of White Horse Media, our main speaker, will present as his theme, Get Ready! Sean Harris, associate speaker for White Horse Media, will speak on the topic of
Mind Games: Preparing for the End by Winning the Battle of the Mind.
Ron Woolsey of Coming Out Ministries will speak on the LGBT movement, its impact, and how we should relate to it. There will be guests from ASI National, including the ASI president, Steve Dickman, who will fill us in on the exciting events and projects occurring around the world that are related to ASI. Members in Action will feature ASI members who are sharing Christ in the marketplace, and our special offering for this year will go toward funding the Jumpstart Free Health Clinic to be held in Killeen, Texas, in July. (While you are registering for the retreat, be sure to sign up as a volunteer in July, as well! The link to volunteer is on our Web site.)
Several guest musical artists, including blind singer Stephanie Dawn; Yumi Castor, who sang at the 2015 General Conference; and Ron Woolsey, who plays the marimba,
will provide beautiful sacred music to enhance the spiritual blessings from the Bible study and talks. This is an event that you won't want to miss!
You can sign up for the retreat and reserve your hotel room at www.asisw.org. Exhibitor booths are also available on the registration link for an additional $100. Be sure to register before the early bird rate ends on February 23. Please forward this e-mail to those who would enjoy being a part of this special event.
Look forward to seeing you there!
Floyd Courtney, president
Southwest Chapter of ASI
