SUGAR LAND, TEX. – The Southwest Region Conference’s Women’s Ministries Congress was held March 9-11, 2018 in Sugar Land, Texas. To God be all the glory, honor and praise for the unmistaken way He blessed the 500 attendees. From registration to wrap-up it was evident that Heaven’s benediction was on this ministry initiative, and it also cemented in the minds of those who assisted in the congress planning and preparation that prevailing prayer works.
When challenges confronted the Women’s Ministries Director, she instituted 21 days of prayer and fasting. The ladies rallied around her and would have a prayer conference call every Monday evening, during the duration of the fast.
We celebrate the fact that this Congress had not only a multicultural aspect to it, but also catered to females across the lifespan. The many young people who participated in the sessions designated for them evidenced the fellowship and inspiration that can occur when we heed Paul’s advice in 2 Timothy 2:3-5, as older women and mentors to the younger women.
The session addressed spiritual, social, emotional and physical challenges that women face. The presenters engaged the attendees in presentations that captivated and enlightened them. We are blessed to have such a cadre of workers who are willing and able to serve.
Again, we say, sincere thanks to all of them. Dr. D. Renee Mobley and evangelist Nicolle J. Brise, our featured speakers for Sabbath, dramatically demonstrated the various hats that women wear and how they can successfully overcome the obstacles in their past, and steer into new vistas in the future.
Thanks to God and gratitude to all who contributed to the blessings of the Women’s Ministries Congress. Indeed, we were tremendously blessed.
