Summit 2012 was a huge success as Elos converged on the City of Peoria, and Bradley University's campus to participate in Elos Stones of Remembrance. Members engaged in activities to remember the blessing that Elogeme has been to all of us!
On Friday, there was a terrific time of Kornenia as sisters played games, and thought about the lives of Sarah and Hagar. (Which are you?)
Early on Saturday morning, our new National Marketing/PR Coordinator, Arletha Johnson enthusiastically shared with members about hearing the voice of God and having the courage obey. Elo Evangelist Angela McClaurin, founding member at NIU, shared with sisters great tips to how to manage and save the resources we have. We can all appreciate her advice to be better stewards. Pastor Ahmad Dawson, youngest child of our Founder Evangelist Mattie Dawson, spoke about "The Color Purple". With enthusiasm and charisma, he shared that there is a cost for our colors, just as there was a cost to establish this ministry. Oh, and we shall not forget Elo Jewel Dawson' s ministry in song! A special visit from founding members Elo Myra Johnson and Elo Audrea Fumbanks who reviewed our history rounded out the morning's events.
In the afternoon, Elos attended The Elo Cafe where they were engaged and challenged with various table topics. The Annual Banquet was beautiful and well attended. Pastor Harold Dawson, the eldest son of our Founder Evangelist Mattie Dawson shared his stones of remembrance as he recounted the early years of development of Elogeme Adolphi.
Special thanks goes out to the National Planning Committee for their diligent work in hosting such a great event.
Celebrating 25 years!
