Every year with Gratitude, we come together as an Organization; as a Sisterhood from various parts of the world, in Thanksgiving to our Father for His Love, for His Blessings, for His Guidance and most of all His Grace and Mercy He so unselfishly bestows upon us daily. We come together with ONE GOAL; We come together with ideas; with projects in mind on how best we can “EMPOWER THE GIRL CHILD.” How best we can lift her up so all she does is “SOAR” in every arena of life? With each passing year, we remain in awe of our FAMILIES, FRIENDS, DONORS SPONSORS, who consistently give up of their time, their resources; and show up consistently and out do the previous year. THANK YOU IS NOT ENOUGH, and we are uncertain as to when it would ever be. But there’s no one within our Organization that can best express our gratitude better than our National President, Ms. Christine Nkwain.

20TH ANNIVERSARY CONVENTION SYNOPSIS – By Christine Nkwain

Permit me begin my Word of Thanks by thanking God for all His Mercies that endureth forever. I thank Him for His Grace upon all our lives and upon LESA USA, Inc. I thank Him for blessing us with 20 Years of Excellence and Prowess. I lift up my hands in Honor, Adoration, Thanksgiving, and Praise unto Our God, who sitteth on His Mighty Throne in Heaven. He alone is Worthy! We are nothing without Him! We are Conquerors because He continues to reign amongst us. God showed up on Thursday and stayed with us all through the weekend, easing the events and ironing out the creases that appeared. Please join me in thanking the God we serve and sending forth thanksgiving to Our Blessed Holy Mother, our Matron, who interceded and intercedes for us.
