By the title of this blog you can probably tell what we are announcing.
Yes! During this whole COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided to get creative and host a virtual conference, where we can all gather and hear the word of God.
We are having two awesome sisters, Ashley and Shirley, as our musical guests. They’re a true inspiration, and their music is amazing! We love seeing young women passionate for God, and following the call He has placed in their lives.
Also, our very own former youth pastor from when we were teenagers, Pastor Cristina Bonilla, will be bringing a powerful word on being fearless. This will be such an amazing message!
We have a few more guests to announce this week, so check out our social media for more updates!
Why host this conference now?
As the world has turned upside down (at least it feels like it!), we believe that many women have become overly anxious, fearful, and withdrawn. Though times are tough, tougher than some of us have ever experienced, we believe our hope should remain in Jesus Christ.
Trust me, I can relate to the feelings of overwhelming, dreadful fear, as I am currently a registered nurse working in my hospital’s first designated COVID-19 unit. I remember when they first announced that our unit would be converted in order to receive all appropriate level of care patients being tested or positive for this virus. I was terrified, and I admit I shed a few anxiety filled tears. Regardless, I had to walk into work, and face my fear every shift. I had to go and take care of those who needed it the most.
That’s our heart behind this online experience. To fill you with hope. Though you are afraid, could you love those around you and see their need?
God has called us as His daughters to spread hope and good news. The amazing, powerful good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ. That our eternity will be spent with God in paradise, and that Jesus won the victory in the cross of Calvary. That He holds the power to heal and resurrect.
So, we hope that as you tune in on April 25th from 6:00-8:00pm, God will touch your heart and set it ablaze to light this world with His divine light.
Be brave sister, the world needs it.
