Years ago someone asked me about getting more senior adults involved in WMU. I jokingly said, “Have a bus trip.” I said that because people like to travel and they like to see our mission work. A missions bus trip is different from a missions trip in that it’s purpose is more to introduce missions and help people understand the needs. Then they can pray more effectively and will be challenged to give even more for missions.
Kentucky WMU has been asked from time to time to plan this type of trip. Since we hosted the national WMU Annual Meeting last June and had over 700 from Kentucky to attend, we thought that this might be a good time for a bus trip to the national WMU meeting.
The national meeting will be in Orlando, which is a long way to ride on a bus. But by traveling overnight, we save two nights of hotel expense. For folks who would rather not have the long walks of airports, plus having to go through security and keep up with your belongings, getting on a bus is much simpler even if it is a long ride.
The trip will depart from Louisville on Friday, June 11 and return early on Thursday, June 17. We will attend the national WMU Missions Celebration and Annual Meeting (Sunday & Monday). We will also attend most of the Southern Baptist Convention Annual Meeting (Tuesday and Wednesday morning).
Click here for complete details and a registration form. Cost of the trip is $400 which includes bus transportation and hotel (double occupancy). Deposits ($100 per person) are due by March 15, with the balance by May 1. We must have at least 30 for this trip. If we do not have the required number, those who have signed up will be given the option to fly (at additional cost).
We are also offering the opportunity to go to Hawaii with the WMU Foundation for the Baptist Women’s Leadership Conference and Baptist World Congress. This trip runs from July 23 – August 2. Click here for all the details.
On the road…again! Hope you will join us for one of these trips.
