About Midwest Parent Educators
Dear MPE Members, Sponsors, and Homeschool Advocates: Our hope is this note finds each of you well! We wanted to give you all an update on what we are working on here at Midwest Parent Educators. We had a very successful Women’s Encouragement Day in January, with over 250 ladies gathering for wonderful fellowship, teaching, worship, and encouragement to stay strong in the Lord’s work of raising children with a Christian worldview. We were so thankful to be able to meet in-person, considering the COVID-19 restrictions, and offer our first ever online WED for those who could not attend in-person. The MPE Homeschool Conference and Curriculum Fair is planned for April 9-10, 2021!! With a few adjustments, and after missing a year, we will be hosting this year’s conference a short drive south of Kansas City in Harrisonville, Missouri. The Conference Committee has worked tirelessly to move the event to a place where we could still have workshops, vendors, and a children’s program. We have seen the Lord provide when we did not know how it was going to come together. We hope you can join us on April 9th and 10th! This year’s graduation will be on May 14th, and we will have the venue set within the next couple of weeks. More information will be available on our website and social media. We have invested in upgrading our website to handle financial transactions, registrations for events, and more content for our members and visitors. We partnered with Computer Impressions at a very low cost to completely overhaul the site and add the functionality necessary. Lastly, 2020 and going into 2021 has been financially difficult. We need your financial help to continue providing quality events, information, and support for the Christian homeschooling community. Membership fees make up less than half the revenue needed. Our MPE Homeschool Conference and Curriculum Fair supplements our organization. Last year our conference was cancelled, and this year is a smaller venue. We find ourselves burning through our cash reserves, and we are about $40,000 behind where we were sitting this time last year. We rarely ask for financial support over and above your membership renewals, but now it has become a necessity. Please pray for MPE, and please consider a financial gift to our organization to keep us viable for homeschool families. Tax-deductible donations may be made via our website, or you are welcome to mail a check to P.O. Box 14391, Lenexa, KS 66285. We thank you all for your commitment to homeschooling your children and the loyalty you have shown Midwest Parent Educators. May the Lord bless you! Sincerely, Dave and Beth Layman MPE President
