It was truly a victorious, raw, humbling, invigorating, vulnerable, and fun night! BEGIN Conference 2020 happened...it really happened, and I woke up the next morning really grateful. Grateful for Jesus and how He was so intentional with every heart that was there. Grateful for the women who came desperate to touch the hem of His garment...expectant for Him to encounter them! I am grateful for my family at The Well and all the hard work they did to make this conference a reality! I am grateful for the women I get to run alongside that brought their gifting, the WORD OF GOD, and their testimony. Thank you to KNOWN MPLS for bringing the FIRE!! And for breaking down any walls that were up! Thank you KANDI PETERSON for inviting us into your worship closet, you led us straight to the feet of Jesus. My soul sister STEPH PAGE, thank you so much for creating a space for healing and authenticity! My dear friend PORTIA ALLEN thank you for challenging us to trust Jesus with our lives so we can be obedient to go where he leads us. My sister LATRISTE GRAHAM, thank you for sharing your story of redemption, healing, and mission! You are a walking miracle! And a big thank you to ICCM LIFE CENTER for opening your home to us. We are so grateful for everyone that was involved as vendors, sponsros, volunteers, speakers, musicians, and guests!
Dear Laura and team, I wanted to thank you so much for a great event. I’m so thankful that the invitation ended up in my email. I brought my daughter and one of her friends. At first, we were disappointed that the “Art” breakout had been cancelled (we hope the gal who was going to lead that recovers quickly with minimum symptoms), but once we got to the Human Trafficking breakout, we realized what God was up to. We felt like that one was WAY too short! The speakers were inspirational, fun and funny. I thanked Portia personally and my daughter ended up going up for advice and prayers with Portia after the altar call. If you only knew what a big deal that was! My daughter doesn’t attend church, although she believes in Christ. I’ve never seen her respond in that way to an invitation. Tears were flowing like the River Jordan. For that alone, I’m so thankful. I can’t wait for next year! Thanks again, Paula
