The conference will have speakers, one of which is a young man from Honduras who graduated from high school and actually attends college, which according to Payne is a huge deal in that part of the world.
The keynote speaker will be Rev. Jean Larroux who is the organizing pastor if Lagniappe Presbyterian Church in Bay St. Louis. He and his family moved to the area to plant the Lagniappe church as part of the Katrina relief and recovery ministry.
