"to open their eyes, so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faithin me." Acts 26:18

Women of Hope Conference

Last Friday, Connie Jackson and I taught at a conference for women that was put on by one of our village churches located up on Mt. Wanale.  We were given the passages Matthew 28:1-10, Proverbs 14:1 and I Peter 3:1-6 to teach through.  It was a huge blessing to both us and the women to be able to study together and share God's hope found in Christ.

Ugandan women know how to celebrate.  When we arrived they had quite the praise service going on.  Music, singing, dancing!  

We were happily hiding behind the choir when Sarah popped her head through the window and caught us trying to dance.  haha!

For part of the time we broke the ladies into small groups and gave them a study to do together.  We wanted them to begin to learn how to study the Bible for themselves.

I think we had about 90 women or so.

And quite a few precious little ones.

 I was also blessed that my 3 oldest girls also attended.

So thankful to be able to teach and minister to the women.  Many women in the village have never even heard of God's words to them in passages such as Proverbs 31.  It is such a blessing to have a whole day set aside to for them.  They are truly a wonderful group of women!
