“Best conference ever!” This sentiment echoed once again at our 2019 WIM International Conference. Over 87% of our missionaries attended this year, making it our most-attended conference yet. The theme this year was “Reconnect, Refresh, Retool,” placing a focus on Jeremiah 31:25, “I will refresh the weary and satisfy the faint.” Each day provided everyone in attendance a chance to do just that.
The event kicked off on Sunday with dinner followed by a night of reuniting and worship. The days that followed included times of learning, fellowship, fun, and great food, of course. On Monday, the ladies had a special lunch and activity which mirrored the conference theme. Tuesday was a day of leisure for attendees to spend the day at Schlitterbahn or touring the San Antonio area. Wednesday provided more opportunities to retool via breakout sessions, and Thursday concluded the conference with worship, awards, and communion.
Various WIM members and guests spoke on several topics, including the need for willing and tough workers, Biblical storytelling, stewardship education, and many others. The conference was truly a blessing to all in attendance and everyone could feel the presence of the Holy Spirit. Thank you to everyone who participated, to the generous sponsors, and to our Heavenly Father for making this event so successful.
