The Fifth Weekend

The theme for the fifth weekend, which was held on 27 - 29 October 2000, was: "Will you allow the Lord to soften your heart, so that surrender and submission follow?"

As we prepared ourselves for the fifth weekend, softening our own hearts, surrendering ourselves to God and laying our ministries down at Jesus' feet, God gave us a prophetic word for the sixth weekend: "Behold I will do a new thing" (Isaiah 43:19). The challenge was to move from Letton to a bigger venue in 2001.

On the Saturday morning we had two presentations:

1. from the Women for the Kingdom team who had been to India earlier in the year as part of the Together for God Team. They shared their experiences of holding a Day Conference for Women in Bangalore and also spoke about the work that was going on in the orphanage in Bangalore, which had benefited from love offerings taken at the Women for the Kingdom weekends.

2. from Pat Botwright, who showed us a video of the opening ceremony of new buildings at Covenant Homes in Kisumu, Kenya. It was wonderful to see happy children singing and to know that they are loved and cared for. It was also good to know that Women for the Kingdom has been able to play a small part in supporting this vital ministry.

The seminars/workshops on the Saturday afternoon were:

  • Deeper into Worship
  • Building Relationships in India
  • Children!
  • Women in Leadership

Our prayer focus for the weekend had been from Acts 16;11-40. Lydia was a woman whose heart was softened, who surrendered her life to God, came in submission to God and saw the fruit of submission in her life.

From the first meeting on the Friday night, through to the final session on the Sunday morning, the Holy Spirit moved amongst us, healing emotional hurts, touching hurting hearts, strengthening and refreshing us. Hearts were softened, and for many of the women this weekend was a life-changing experience as they surrendered their lives to God. Our prayer was that they would see the fruit of submission in their lives as they continued to walk closely with him.
