Seeing friends and the connecting with the sisterhood is always part of the feel good factor of attending a ministers’ wives conference and I was happy this year’s Northeast Regional was close to home. The Maryland Association of Ministers’ Wives and Ministers’ Widows hosted the 2016 Northeast Regional Conference of the International Association of Ministers’ Wives and Ministers’ Widows. The MAMWMW, led by President Eloise Jackson, accommodated the conference attendees with grace and excellence during the weekend event. Over 360 women registered for the conference that included Holy Communion, stimulating workshops and dynamic speakers.
The conference concluded this afternoon with a thoroughly enjoyable Awards & Arts Luncheon. It was a blessing to hear inspirational words from our International President, Dr. Beverly Glover. She has a genuine passion for the sisterhood and her words are always inspiring. One of the highlights of the luncheon was the presentation from the New York delegation to welcome women to Uniondale for the 2017 Northeast Regional Conference. They sang and danced and left everyone happy, excited and looking forward to next year. On a side note, many of the women enjoyed the music as the food was being served. I enjoyed it so much that I asked around and discovered the deejay was Dr. Daniel Dupree, husband of Dr. Loretta Dupree, our Northeast Regional Vice President. He introduced me to the Fruition Experience, if you are not familiar with them, by all means check it out, you’ll be blessed and glad you did.
