The Heart Is Asking Questions …

What an amazing event 147 Million Orphans was a part of at the Lifeway Women's Ministry Forum.  It is a joy to share with others as their hearts searched for a way to be involved in the SOCIAL JUSTICE FOR ORPHANS … We spoke with grandmothers, counselors, new ministry leaders, future ministry leaders, and adoptive mom's in our sessions … It was such a joy to able share our GOD STORY and encourage someone else to take their first step in a new journey of serving the Lord as he has called them … It felt like such a purposeful event with so many seeking information so that they could better serve the kingdom and also fill their cups … It is often hard to serve and seek when no one understands or you feel worn and pulled in so many directions … I could tell women where getting the tools needed to continue or start a NEW JOURNEY with the Lord …

Suzanne and I saw all 850 women walking around talking, huddled in corners in prayer, laughing, and scurrying off to as many main sessions or classes they could fit in for the 3 day conference… The ability to go to so many knowledgable people was definitely a gift for the attendees… And you could sense the air of "OPENNESS" at the forum … I know Suzanne and I said many times to the people who came to our table or were in our session that we are here to help so ask us ANYTHING and it was as if a veil was lowered and they felt safe to speak and share … It is ONLY when we can be transparent with each other that growth can happen and I definitely felt that so many women left the forum feeling EQUIPPED…

What a blessing to see so many EYES sparkle as they felt part of something bigger than themselves … It was as if we were all part of a team AND REALLY WE ARE … God's soldiers preparing for battle … It will be fun to see what God has in store at next year's Lifeway Women's Ministry Conference …
