Betty Bowen to speak at Aglow

Great Bend Aglow will meet Saturday, Nov. 10, at Perkins Family Restaurant, 2920 10th St.  The guest speaker will be Betty Bowen from Plano Texas. Sign-in and social time begins at 9 a.m.  The meeting starts at 9:30 am.  Everyone is welcome to attend.
 Bowen grew up in south central Oklahoma, married at a very young age and nine years later became a mother. Those who hear her story will laugh, cry and identify with her life as she shares of being abandoned at birth, as well as her times of happiness, sadness, aloneness and feelings of total helplessness, sponsors said.  They will hear and understand the mercy, faithfulness and love of God as He has protected and watched over her life.
