Women Rising Up
In September of 2016, over 700 women from Lusaka and throughout the nation of Zambia gathered at Miracle Life Family Church for the Living Free Women’s Conference. With corporate worship, general ministry sessions, and practical workshops, this two-day event aims to both inspire and challenge women to grow in their faith.
Pastor Haley shared a powerful message entitled Unchain the Elephant that helped ladies realize the areas of their lives that were keeping them back from their God-given destiny. She also gave them steps of courageous obedience to take. Our guest speakers made an enormous impact as well. Kristan Gray, visiting from the States, shared her personal testimony in a message about forgiveness toward self and others. Kasonde Bushe, a Rhema Zambia charter class graduate, spoke candidly and vulnerably on breaking free from shame. A number of other women from Miracle Life facilitated workshops on parenting, overcoming intimidation, entrepreneurship, love languages, finances, and the ever-elusive balance of life and work.
This annual conference is always a highlight of the year for us, and not only because it’s a catalyst of transformation in the attendees’ lives. It also gives us a unique opportunity to see the diverse strength and giftings of the women of Miracle Life Family Church. The incredible women who lead, speak, volunteer, and serve to make this event a success are a beautiful and powerful visual example of living free.
