Spring 2016 Tour
On the Spring 2016 Tour, Daoud Nassar and his 16-year-old daughter, Shadin, Bill Plitt and Beth Moore (of the FOTONNA Steering Committee) had the honor of visiting a wide-ranging number of special places in and around Austin, Texas. Diane Umstead and a band of friends put together this tour, including:

St. Stephen‘s Episcopal Church – Austin – two Chapel Services and two Theology
St. Edwards University – Austin

Shadin’s performance left people spellbound, and she had a standing ovation at the end.
Also included were events at:
Informal get-together with American-Arab community members – Cedar Park
Huston-Tillotson University – Austin
River City Vineyard Community Church – Potluck followed by presentation and questions – New Braunfels
We are so pleased to add Texas to the states that have welcomed the Nassar Family Story.
