Love Serves is our 2019 ASI NW Convention theme for dynamic meetings coming to Walla Walla, April 18-20! Jill and I want to invite you to join us in what will be a memorable event! Karl Haffner, a long time friend, author and world renown speaker will be joining us Thursday and Friday evenings, and all day Sabbath at the Fine Arts Center on the campus of Walla Walla University. And for the FIRST TIME EVER, we have at Village Hall, beginning at 7pm (think that’s the right time), our last evening meeting, combined with our very own version of SDA Shark Tank in partnership with students on the campus who’ll put forward their most creative ideas! $10,000 will awarded the best ideas, and you’ll get a chance to see up close four successful business people evaluating and providing insight to each idea as we seek to encourage the next wave of business minds in our faith community. Plus, the audience gets one vote, as a group, as well! Also, like the last two years, we’ll be conducting a Love Heals Dental and Medical clinic, in partnership with local ministries and community outreach providers, as we hope to serve 1,000 patients in Jesus’ name, as we live out our motto of Love Serves on their behalf. Service to others, fellowship, great food, good lodging and one last surprise awaits you: at the campus we’ll be featuring in various ways, 10 to 15 ministries, mostly based here in the Northwest, as you’ll see first hand the amazing ways ASI members are serving others in love! Join us, as we live out our motto of Love Serves!
