The Afflicted Conference is put on by Lifesong for Orphans in order to raise awareness for how to care for both the orphan and the trafficked/enslaved individual. 

 

The conference will have various organizations speaking about what God is doing in some of the darkest places of the world and the hope that we have in the gospel. There will also be a booth fair to learn more about what God is doing and how you can be a part of it by making purchases that benefit the orphan and the oppressed.

 

The theme for this conference is, "Even in the darkness, there is hope," in relation to John 1:5: "The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it."

 

There is no fee to attend. Registration is not necessary. Visit the website above for more information on Lifesong for Orphans.

Join us for the 2015 World Leaders Forum Inspirational Series featuring Nick Vujicic! 

 

Nick Vujicic, of Melbourne, Australia, faces life each day without ever using hands, arms, legs, or feet. That is because he was born without any limbs. Yet, maneuvering around with severe disabilities has done little to deter him from living a "ridiculously good" life and encouraging others to do the same. Now, the 31-year-old husband and dad travels the world over as a successful motivational speaker and New York Times best-selling author, telling people to hold on to their dreams, their hopes, and to Jesus Christ. 

 

Doors open at 5:30 p.m. Tickets are on sale now at the website above.
