Women of Hope Conference

As women, we are natural caretakers. God designed us to care for our husbands, children, friends, parents and well....let's face it, everyone around us. But where do we go to get recharged? Where do we find the energy and spiritual renewal that we need in order to carry this load? That is the purpose behind the Women of Hope conference. It is an opportunity for Christian women to come together to hear dynamic speakers, meet other Christian women, and encourage one another in service to others.

Woman of Hope 2017

Dr. Amanda Madrid is the CEO of Mission Predisan in Honduras. A native of Honduras, Amanda came to Predisan in 1987, one year after the ministry began. She is the mission’s founding medical director and the founder of CEREPA addiction treatment center. Dr. Madrid holds an M.D. Degree from the National University of Honduras and both a master’s and a doctorate in international public health from Loma Linda University in California. She also received advanced training in addiction treatment in Costa Rica. Dr. Madrid has three grown children and several grandchildren. Dr. Madrid's incredible journey, from diligently working as a doctor for poor, rural farmers to confronting drug-cartel thugs whose deadly crimes were threatening the lives of those same farmers, is carefully detailed in Greg Taylor's book, “Lay Down Your Guns: One Doctor’s Battle for Hope and Healing in Honduras.” Dr. Madrid has brought God’s light into the darkness and is planting Seeds of Hope throughout Honduras and the United States. We are thrilled to honor her as this year’s Woman of Hope!
