Greetings from the New Mexico Conference!

Greetings from the New Mexico Conference United Methodist Women!  I was honored to be invited to the New Mexico UMW Annual Meeting in Albuquerque this weekend.  It was a special time for me because I was born and reared in New Mexico and my mother served as a local, district, and conference officer in this conference as well.  It was exciting to be asked to come "home" for a visit.

They even asked me to be the speaker at the banquet on Saturday evening!!  It was an honor, but I'm glad I got that done.  UMW has a way of stretching us, doesn't it!  I felt very supported by friends.  Karen Morgan, our East District President of the Central Texas Conference, and Jerri and Bill Savuto, my dear friends and retired missionaries, were there to cheer me on.

I got to visit with long time friends and meet many new ones as well.  The New Mexico president Jo Anne Buckley has been a wonderful friend and supporter as we have served as conference presidents together for the past four years.  It was special to get to be there to celebrate her last annual meeting as president.

I'm enjoying some time in Santa Fe with my family and will return to Texas on Tuesday evening.  I'm working on the October "Cynthia's Sharing" and the Healthy Families/Healthy Planet Colloquim we are helping with on Nov. 2 & 3.  I'm also praying for the Local Leadership Training that will be going on in the 5 districts in November.  I hope we will have a great turn out and all will be blessed by the day.

Just a reminder!  The registration for the Legislative Event is on the website.  Our national leader Harriett Olson will be there to speak to us.  I'm going to be there for sure.  Hope to see you there too!

Many blessings,

Cynthia
