“I am an Overcomer” says 700 women

Arise 2014 Conference Report

At the first light of spring over 700 women gathered from across South Africa at Word of Faith Christian centre to hear the uthentic messages by Vanessa Goosen and Esther Meshoe.

Both speakers complimented the conference with their moving stories from devastation to redemption by meeting King Jesus.

Women young and old united in fellowship at the ninth annual ARISE Women’s Conference with this years focus ‘I am an Overcomer’ inspired by Psalm 39:10-11: ”You turned my mourning into joyful dancing”.

Former beauty queen, Vanessa Goosen, told a tale of how when she was in the world, she had very little time for God. But when got caught up as a drug mule and sentenced to death in a Thai prison, she cried out to Jesus to save her.

Esther Meshoe, a dynamic successful entrepreneur and philanthropist, encouraged women to ‘be specific’ about their dreams, for “where there is no vision my people shall perish”. (Read Proverbs 27:18)

Vanessa and Esther have overcome life’s unpredictable adversities by rising up with courage and conviction.

Delegates at the conference were blessed with terrific weather, solid teaching and outstanding worship and performing arts with the likes of Michelle Gray and René Marks.

“I am leaving this conference feeling empowered and encouraged to take on whatever lemons life throws at me”, shares Queen Molefe, a first time ARISE attendee.

The conference made provision for women from all interest groups by offering seminars relating to faith, business and creative arts all inspired by the Holy Spirit. On-site coffee lounges, a beauty spa and a marketplace kept ladies busy between sessions.

You can purchase the full ARISE 2014 Conference or individual workshops on DVD or audio by contacting Word of Faith Christian Centre on (041) 399 4400.

Relationships

by Mariana Crompton

WHY RELATIONSHIPS?

Relationships, as we have all discovered, can make life near amazing or almost unbearable. They provide songwriters with material for countless lyrics, awakening warm fuzzy feelings or the downhearted blues. From as early as when we are in our mother’s womb we are taught lessons about life and relationships – whether they be positive or negative. These lessons have an affect on the way we relate to God and to people, be it our own parents, in-laws, husband, children, family, colleagues, friends or just in general.

I have found that when it comes to healthy relationships, there is no one-size-fits-all piece of advice, but rather a pattern that God has laid out for us in His Word. A good relationship is more than something we want, it is something we need in order to be our happiest, healthiest and most productive selves. However, at home or at work, supportive, fulfilling relationships don’t happen automatically. They require an investment of our time and energy, as well as social skills, that are learned.
