|Host Your Own Area Conference!|
We have discussed the idea of duplicating the Amish Awareness Conference and holding various other ones in the U.S. What are your thoughts? Would you be able and willing to spearhead one in your area? If you are interested, contact us at (419) 962-1515 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
|Worship and Special Music by the Schmidt Family|
Music was provided by Stephen and Rosetta Schmidt and family, who joined us from Indiana to share the Gospel in bluegrass and yodeling! They even blessed us with a concert on the first evening! Learn more about them at www.conleyschmidt.com.
The Schmidts come from a Swiss Amish upbringing, which is quite different from other Amish groups in America. Their group, in most cases, is considered ultra-conservative and they work very hard at keeping the (Swiss) family lineage pure.
|Fun with Paul|
Our very own Paul Miller, giving away DVDs, CDs, books, and fridge reminders to pray for MAP.
Throughout the conference, we recorded seventeen sessions, which include testimonies, sermons, and the following eight sessions: Anabaptist Movement, Culture and Values, Beliefs and Practices I and II, Legalism and Leaving, Why Evangelism is Necessary (three ways to connect), Do’s, Don’ts and Stumbling Blocks and Helping the Former Amish. For $60, we will send you the 135 page book and seven CDs. Additional books are $12 each. You can order from AmishAwareness.com or call our office at (419) 962-1515.

|Life Book Project, with Pastor Geoff Smith|
Pastor Geoff Smith from Missionary Baptist Church in Greenwood, WI shared with us his ideas for the Life Book project — a portion of Scripture but with added notes by the former Amish to help other Amish see and understand the true meaning of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. If you want to learn more, support the project, or help Pastor Geoff, let us know.
You can also contact him directly at: email@example.com
