Laura’s message is one the you will never forget. She spoke recently at our Di’s Hope Women’s Conference in Cuba, Alabama and what a blessing we received. Her delivery plays on all emotions, laughter, tears and a deep sense of longing to be better than we are. We will never forget Maleka. This precious child stood before us and sang with a voice that only God could have given her. Our hearts were filled. Laura is a speaker that no one should miss. It is our desire that she will return to our conference.
In 2009, I had the honor and privilege to hear Laura West speak at Madison Avenue Baptist church in Maryville, TN. Her life story will simply overwhelm you. She has a heart full of love and kindness for everyone she meets, especially for less fortunate children. She blessed us through song and words of a very powerful message regarding her life journey with her adopted daughter, Maleka, who I had the pleasure of meeting that day.
I am truly thankful for the opportunity to have heard Laura speak and also to have heard Maleka sing. I hope you will be given the same opportunity to meet Laura and Maleka and receive the same joy that I received. I look forward to inviting Laura and Maleka back to our church in the near future. If you have any questions regarding their previous engagement with our church, I am happy to speak with you at your convenience.
Swann’s Chapel Missionary Baptist Church will be having Laura to speak at their Women Retreat Dinner in April 2012. This will be the third time she has came and spoke for us. We have been so blessed to have such a friend and speaker. We enjoy and appreciate her. Thank God for women like her!
It is my pleasure to give this reference concerning Laura. As Associate Pastor of House of Praise in Sevierville, TN. I have had the pleasure on a couple of occasions to hear Laura speak in church’s. Laura’s ability to motivate members of the congregation is “Excellent.” Her knowledge and caring attitude is appreciated by everyone present. Laura and her husband John, a Police Officer for the City of Sevierville, have proven themselves to be very caring and upstanding Citizens in this community.
