About 100 of God’s girls braved the rain and gathered around the Word at BELIEVE 2015. We were encouraged, challenged and inspired – in fact moved to change, throughout the day. Natalie Osorio, Girzie Vanas and the worship team from Mile End Church led us in meaningful worship sessions accompanied by Jackson Chen. Team member Ronalda Hoffman and Katia Lamas engaged the women in prayer and giving. Dr Danijella Schubert shared great insights into the Biblical view, design and framework of the “family”.
Our young Theology students, Hope Chomczynski and Aniele Deojee presented compelling cases of why they believe in the “I Believe” segments. Women engaged in robust discussion in breakout discussion groups bringing interesting points to the feedback session. Women shared and mingled over a hearty meal. Team member Leela Landers hosted an icebreaker quiz segment to gather everyone. Special guest – Jo Armstrong of the Bible Society shared the amazing work that the Bible Society is doing in getting the Word of God into challenging areas and the difference it is making. Charissa Fong closed the day and challenged us with the parable of the 10 virgins – just powerful stuff!!! Marleta Fong sealed our experience with a beautiful song about the Grace of God!! Truly a day to remember and a faith-affirming experience.
