Minutes from the Texas WMA Officers:

The Texas WMA Officers met at noon on February 1, 2020, at Latch Baptist Church.  After enjoying a tasty lunch, provided by the Latch ladies, Johnnie Ross, president, called the meeting to order and mentioned that the National WMA will meet in Waxahachie in April.  The body of officers spent a few minutes planning a welcome gift for all attendees. Johnnie also presented the financial report, provided by Jo Strong, corresponding secretary, and an offering was received for our Sonshine Fund.
Maeva Thompson, 1st vice-president, spoke about the
spring retreat, The Miracles of Jesus, and secured speakers for the sessions from among the officer body.  The date is May 2, 2020, location is LakeRidge Baptist Church in Lubbock, and the meeting will run from 10 – 3 pm, with childcare provided.

 Kristi Key, 2nd vice-president, gave us details for our
fall retreat.  It will be September 11–12, 2020, at Northside Baptist Church in Conroe, with the theme, Sweet Hour of Prayer.  There will be several choices for break-out sessions, all dealing with prayer in different seasons or situations in our lives.  It stands to be a great retreat.

Glenda Chamberlain, editor, supplied a schedule for articles for the Baptist Progress. Alicia Johnson, historian, asked for information for the Texas WMA website each time it is provided for the Progress. 

Kendra Verhelle and Hayley Rasco, our GMA and YLA promoters, gave updates on our work with these young ladies. The state
GMA Houseparty will be March 13–14 at Daniel Springs.  Shirley Hoffpauir, assistant Sunbeam promoter, gave a report on the state Sunbeams and all their plans, including the state Sunbeam Houseparty at Jacksonville College, July 17–18.

Saturday, May 2, 2020,

Has been CANCELLED due to the corona virus situation & the BMAA meeting cancelled prior to this date.  Message from TX WMA President Johnnie Ross:

Ladies, I really don't want to do this, but we are going to cancel the west Texas retreat for May 2. I do not plan to cancel permanently--we'll just need to reschedule.
We all feel that this is something God wants us to do. We need to once again 'connect' with our sisters in west Texas, and make them feel that they are still a vital part of Texas WMA work. It's just that at this point, the National Meeting in Waxahachie that was meeting the first part of the same week has been canceled, and we should follow suit.  
Please go ahead and work on your break-out session, because the Lord will provide the perfect opportunity for us to hold this retreat.
Personally, I am heartbroken. This was going to be a time when my daughters were going to attend a WMA event with me, and I was anticipating that my west Texas daughter-in-law was going to get to attend as well. I was looking so forward to participating/attending.
We'll give God the glory, and we'll continue to be available for his work.
I love each and every one of you, and I thank each of you for your willingness to participate in this event. I especially want to thank Maeva for her diligence is all the planning that she has done.

Johnnie Ross
Texas WMA

PS. Don't forget to cancel your reservations for the BMAA meeting, and we won't need to pack the welcome bags right now. We'll wait and see what's going to happen there before we make any more plans.
