In January of 2000, I felt the Lord calling me to start a women’s conference in the area that I live. My husband and I were both down with the flu, at the same time. We used up all our aspirin and orange juice, so a quick call to my brother to help out. He drove up to the door and set what we needed on the table, not wanting to come in.

I felt that because of my fever that maybe I was hallucinating, because I had never been to a women’s conference. I had no idea of what to do, or even how to start one. After the bout with the flu, I called a woman whom I knew to see if she could help me start one. She said no, but did know someone that was capable of giving me the kind of help I needed.

We had our first conference in April of 2004, with a count of 400 women attending. We went under the umbrella of a Christian organization for the first two years. On June 30th of 2006, we applied for our own non-profit, with the letter giving us this status July 15, 2006.

We have had many women come forward to accept Jesus Christ as their Lord, but the one that was an encouragement to all of us came on a Saturday morning.

This lady had been brought by friends on Friday, and we could tell that she did not like this at all. As our main speaker began to give her message, she became very uneasy. She was the first one out of the door at the end of the evening.

The next morning she came back and gave her suicide letter and pills to the Speaker, that spoke on Friday night. Her comment was "Here; I don’t need these any more.” She is now a faithful member of a Church in our area.

Powerful! You just never know what God has up His proverbial sleeve when His sets us on our paths, and we just never know how many lives we touch along the way!

Great story and you told it well!

Oh my this gave me chills. This was a gripping and touching entry. Thank you for showing us the power of God and how His love encompasses our lives.

Great job.

You did a nice job telling of this testimony. It's wonderful the marvels Christ can do with us when we listen to his calling.
