LPI Lay Ministry UMW Teen Unit travel to Austin, Texas
On Jan. 25, 2013 four young ladies of the LPI Lay Ministry Program , UMW Teen Unit traveled to Austin, Texas for the 25th annual United Methodist Women's Legislative Event. This is an annual event in which UMWs learn about legislative issues related to United Methodist Social Principles and the priorities of the United Methodist Women. This year's event featured a very special keynote address by the national leader of the United Methodist Women, Harriet Jane Olson. This Legislative Event was packed with expert policy presentations, practical advocacy training, and conversations with top Texas lawmakers, as well as time at the Capitol. They traveled to the Capital to speak with legislators about funding the water plan for Texas, extending Medicaid for those who qualify, Educational issues especially in the area of standardized testing and its negative impact on student learning and Criminal Justice issues particularly where they affect Juvenile Justice. Ilka Vega, Priscilla Huerta, Carolina Jaquez and Keyla Anderson represented LPI, their parents and themselves in a respectful, professional manner.

Additional Ministries
