Special Guest Speaker:Marie MonvilleFormer Wife of the Amish Schoolhouse Shooter“When all other lights go out, He still shines!” This became the anthem to Marie’s life when on October 2, 2006, her then-husband made a decision to hold an Amish schoolhouse hostage, forever changing life as she knew it. It is her testimony, forged while moving through unthinkable circumstances, into the unfathomable love of the Father. On her darkest day, Marie simply chose to believe that HE IS. Her act of faith radically propelled her into a future she could not have hoped for or imagined. Marie ministers the truth of God’s love: it is deep enough to heal any wound, strong enough to break all bondage and brings light to those in darkness. In the years since God continues to unfold his beautiful plan of redemption over her family.Marie tells a story of forgiveness, healing, and the restoration God has done in her life. She is living proof that God can bring beauty out of brokenness, and she loves to share that message with others. She will inspire you to dive deep into a relationship with God, which will transform your life and impact all you encounter. She believes that God is real, He is alive, and His love brings us to life. Marie and her husband, Dan, live in Lancaster County, PA, with their 6 children. They traveled to South Africa in July 2015, where they adopted their son. Marie is passionate about adoption and shares this through her ministry. She graduated from the School of Ministry (Christ Community Church, Camp Hill, PA) in 2012.Ok, that’s the bio, but here’s the real me. I’m a wife and mom of 6 kids. I’m passionate about my family and believe in the redemptive beauty of adoption. You’ll find me advocating for the older child. Family dinners are special, so they are a priority in our home. Sometimes that means a nice meal on real dishes, and other days, that’s leftovers on paper plates! I’m a dreamer, a believer, and if you’re in my circle, I’ll champion you and your goals! I love real relationships, and that means living life with authenticity. So, on any given day there might be 12+ pairs of my kids’ shoes between our living and dining room; I’m still working on that!A personal note from Marie…..(click)Marie’s website: MarieMonville.com
Pastor Ken Yates
It is with tremendous sadness that our Board of Directors has had to make the decision to postpone our 2020 Annual Convention. We have been in contact with the hotel, speakers and the Sight & Sound Theatre to assess the best option for our group. It has been very difficult to project what the October constraints will be that wouldrestrict our event. Lord willing, we will hold the plans for the same location in 2021. We will deeply miss the warm fellowship this October and ask the Lord for guidance.
Have you ever looked at your life and tried to figure out how the plans you thought were taking you in one direction suddenly ended up somewhere you never envisioned? I have. And I didn’t see it coming.On October 2, 2006, my life changed. My husband and I were married almost 10 years. I was a stay at home mom to 3 young kids (ages 7, 5 and 18 months). I thought we had a good relationship. I loved my family. Life was simple. When I woke up that morning I had no idea that before lunchtime I would become a widow, my kids would no longer have a father, and my community would face heartbreaking devastation.My husband committed the Amish Schoolhouse shooting. My simple, predictable life was over. I could not comprehend how this man I loved, this man who loved our kids, was capable of killing children. But there was no way to deny it. Everyone asked me to answer for Charlie’s choices, but I didn’t have answers. All I held were broken pieces of the life we built and the promises we made. I felt devastated and desperate, but not without hope. God was our constant, and I knew I could trust him. He had showed me in countless ways throughout the years that he was faithful. To me, this was much bigger than anything I had faced before, but I knew he didn’t see it that way. He saw our pain, not from a distance, but from the place where we stood. That day I chose to surrender my brokenness and trust him with something I could not see my way through.God promised redemption. And he has kept his promise. And if you find yourself walking a similarly unexpected road, know that the same God who writes his redemption story in my life is writing one in yours. Nothing is impossible. His love never fails.Marie’s website: MarieMonville.com
