The conference has come to an end. Our church hosts such an event annually, every spring at the beginning of March. Some might dare to say it gets repetitive and monotonous, just to place a mark on the calendar... And it would be so, if every year the lives of people would not be transformed through these conferences. As a matter of fact, not just regular people, but ladies, God's creations, with a more delicate and intricate mental organization... The crown of all creation, as they speak of themselves. And there is no need to argue the point that lives, destinies, families and ministries are being changed, it is a fact, and there are hundreds of testimonies to prove it. In fact, we have asked many of them to record their testimonies on video, and they will soon be up on our website, where you can hear and see them.
As a principle, God changes fates, hearts and minds of people at many different organized events. This would include encounters, G12 conferences, prayer marathons and many others... But ladies have a way to make each event a celebration! My dearest wife spoke out on behalf of all the women, "Ladies pay attention to the smallest details, the flowers, the beauty, how everything coordinates. You men couldn't understand - you are too straight forward, like a tank! But for a woman, the atmosphere is important, it sets the mood, and opens up the heart to receive the Word and the blessings!"
Of course, it took a lot of time to prepare the atmosphere - unexplainable setting, decoration, and the overall beauty that you dived into upon entering the building. It is useless trying to explain this beauty in words, and even photos will not do the justice of passing along the atmosphere of excitement that was so tangible in the air. Pastors Vera Login and Tamila Bigun shared their impressions the following day on the radio in an interview with pastor Victor. Honest and open review, you can hear it for yourself. And here is what amazes me the most - nothing ever repeats itself! I told Tanya Tsvor, one of the coordinators at this conference, "Tanya, next year you will have to think of something completely new! Is it possible to create something more original, more beautiful?! What are you going to do next year?" "Don't worry," she said as she waved her hand with a nonchalant reply, "we'll think of something. We're women!"
As far as the program is concerned, everything was at the top. The guest speakers we had, are a cause to celebrate in itself - Olga Ledyaeva, pastor in "New Generation" church in Riga, and also Marcela Page, youth pastor of "Mercy" church in St. Louis Obispo, California. There were also a few pastors visiting from different parts of the US - Chicago, Oregon, Los Angeles, who came with their disciples. In general, the great variety of people brought with it a lot of diversity and happiness.I got lucky enough to hear some of pastor Olga Ledyava's sermon - revolutionary words, especially for women, which bring freedom and victory. I didn't get to hear the sermons of pastor Marcela, or our beloved pastor Olga, who carried this conference as a child in her womb - from conception to birth, but they (sermons) are available for orders in audio and HD video formats (even on Blue-rays). Hurry to order your copy: 916-692-9288.
There is much more that I can talk about, and with great excitement - the "Timeline of a Lady" drama/dance, humorous skits, interactive games, tea time fit for a queen, etc... It will all be available for you in a photo/video format, and will explain itself to you much better than I ever could, so I will conclude my report. It will be a pleasure to see you at our next annual ladies conference!!! Watch the recap of the conference and browse through the gallery of photos.
