July 7, 2014. It’s hard to believe that it’s already July 7th! One month from tomorrow we will be at the Sending Hope Conference, featuring the one and only Nancy Zieman, of “Sewing With Nancy”. I have to take a moment and tell you how honored I am to host her as our VIP speaker. She is so gracious to make time in her schedule for us. And even more importantly, I can’t begin to tell you the blessing she has been to so many. She continues to spread the word far and near about what we do with LDFA and has shipped us over 75,000 dresses and britches and spread the word to countless others who are now sewing for us. Lives are touched and changed because she cares. Please help me honor her by attending the conference and hearing her story.

The Conference begins at 5pm on Friday, August 8 with a meet and greet with Nancy, followed by dinner and then a late night pajama party with prizes for the best pajamas! Saturday offers a number of incredible speakers and breakout sessions and it is your choice what you attend or take part in. Food all weekend is included with the price of registration. It’s a great time to meet your friends. We have attendees from 14 states so far and I am so excited to meet you!

Some of the highlights are Beth Waterson who lived in India for 8 years and works with the rescue of girls from Sex Trade. Her stories will blow your mind. Michael Mchawa is coming from Malawi and will give us a first hand report on how your dresses are changing lives. Jan from Arizona will speak on turning success to Significance. Jan is a certificed Financial planner and her knowledge is amazing and her spirit is even more amazing. A very dear friend, Katie Dorband will bring her music and her story of adopting two precious babies from Rwanda. We have breakout sessions to learn about the sani-panti program and Beads on a Mission and hands on crafts with Casey and her gratitude books and Cheryl with her Brave girl cards and the knowledge that these ladies bring.

Your choices are many and the opportunities are amazing but here’s the real point: Your registration fee will go to ship thousands and thousands of little dresses that have been sewn and donated from all over the world. Your money will go 100% to fund the feeding programs and to support the work we are doing all over Africa. Talk about a win/win. Shipshewana, Indiana is beautiful and relaxing and offers so much to see. Please join us. I can’t wait to meet you. Bring a group; buy 5 registrations and receive one free. Make it a getaway. See you there! Please register today! Love and thanks, Rachel
