Here are some more highlights you will want to know about:

1.  Same low registration price.  We are thankful that we can keep the registration price the same as in past years – only $10 per person.   After all expenses last year, we were blessed to be able to give away $3,000 in Expo cash to attendees, and provide generous donations to both Sparrows Nest Ministry and Burkina Faso Outreach.  We have also adopted a child through Burkina Faso outreach – (an ongoing support of a family who will receive food supplies and spiritual food – the gospel)   Additionally,we made a donation to Kerry Messer of Missouri Family Network, our homeschool lobbyist in Jefferson City.  The Lord is truly multiplying your $10!
