'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

A committee of women from Pennsville Baptist Church and Wooddale Bible Brethren Church in Mt. Pleasant will host its seventh Women of the Way conference.

The conference is scheduled for May 16 and 17 in Pennsville Baptist Church. The speaker will be Leslie Vernick, Christian counselor and author of “The Emotionally Destructive Relationship” and “The Emotionally Destructive Marriage.” Her topic will be humility, becoming the best possible you and how humility helps to build great relationships and repair damaged ones.

Vernick will address how to handle emotional abuse, especially in marriage, and will encourage those struggling with difficult relationship problems.

“A few of us ladies had been going out to Lancaster every year to a women's conference there, and we just decided that we really wanted to have something closer to home,” said Bonny Coffman, a member of the organizing committee. “Ladies from Wooddale Bible Brethren were involved from the beginning.”

Attendance averages between 150 and 220 each year.

Those wishing to attend need to register. Cost is $20, which includes refreshments and a Saturday morning brunch.

Visit www.pennsvillebaptist.com to print out a registration form and send it to Pennsville Baptist Church at 3298 Richey Road, Mt. Pleasant, PA 15666.

The doors will open at 5:30 p.m. May 16. Light refreshments will be served until 6:40 p.m. before Vernick's first session begins at 7.

On May 17, the doors will open at 8 a.m., and coffee and tea will be served until 8:45 a.m. before Vernick's second session begins at 9. A mid-morning brunch will be served after the second session and before Vernick's third session. The event should conclude about 1 p.m.

Registration forms are due Monday. For details, contact Coffman at 724-244-2334 or 724-887-6098.
