Christian Women’s Connection met Wednesday, March 19, at the Quality Inn for a night of entertainment and an inspiring talk.
The evening started with great entertainment from Vicki Lynn Peters on the keyboard, Dan Dobson on the keyboard and saxophone, Mike Berry and Joe Hall on the keyboard and trombone. They sang and played a nice selection of tunes and one couple was seen dancing in the aisles. More than 20 first timers were in attendance.
Evelyn McGregor then talked about Stonecroft Minstries and the work they do to change lives through the monthly gatherings which feature speakers who tells their story of how God transformed their lives.
Wanda Poppe introduced Paula Abbot who told us her incredible story of how she grew up abused and unwanted. This drove her to find love in all the wrong places and to a life of drugs and more abusive relationships.
Her life changed when she attended church and heard about Jesus. However, Paula did not accept Jesus as her savior yet and overdosed again. This time she knew who could save her and she called out to Jesus, who changed her life. Jesus encompassed her with the love she never had in her life.
She is now happily married to a pastor of a church in the Dallas area. She has written several books about her life journey which she brought with her to share.
The next monthly meeting will be in Grant on April 16 at 2:30 p.m. It will be at Westview Retirement Community, 1 Westview Drive. Peggy Lee from Prairie Village, Kan. will share how she met life’s challenges and special music will be provided by Paul Lee.
Christian Women’s Connection will return to Ogallala on May 21 for a Mother/Daughter Tea at the Quality Inn at 7 p.m. There will be a style show by The Clothing Closet. A special speaker will share her story.
