Greetings to my By-Faith Sisters.
The new Central Georgia District, organized and formulated the Sister Keepers Ministry. Under the Leadership of our District First Lady, Zellene Smith. Evangelist Eleanor Thomas, was appointed as Coordinator. And a planning Committee of ten other sisters, representing each local Church.
Our Theme: “Women Reaching Women”, Scripture: 2 Cor. 1:3-5. Is so heart touching to us, that Sister Keepers is not just a mere Conference slogan, but a way of life that, we as Woman of God have dedicated ourselves too.
We were blessed to have 72 Sisters sign up for our Conference and 12 others that purchased T-Shirts to join us as a group during our central Georgia Picnic on Oct 3, 2015. We were blessed to have Minister Ruth Brown, of Abbeville, COGBF, as our Friday night Speaker during our Candle Lighting Ceremony.
On Saturday morning, we had a Prayer and Praise Service, our Speaker was First Lady Patricia Lester, of Hawkinsville, COGBF. At the close of this service we had Mothers and Female Ministers from our Local churches, anoint Handkerchiefs (that was handmade) and prayed over them, each person is are allowed a handkerchief to take home. To be used as a healing balm.
A space is then opened for hotel check-out and Dinner. Our closing Ceremony began with Praise and Worship. Then a time for Fun! Fun! And more fun, we play games win prizes, laugh and enjoy one another. Everyone present leaves with a gift Bag. God really blessed us, and His spirit overshadowed every service.
We’ve received many great reviews, and many more have a mind to make sure they are there next year. Much Prayer went before the Lord. concerning our conference, and our Planning Committee. And God is yet Blessing us. Please! Keep Central Georgia in your prayer.
God Bless each of you,
Evangelist Eleanor Thomas, Coordinator
