A group of GSCC women team members learn how to allow God to take control of their lives and help them live a balanced life.The GSCC women’s leadership team organized an annual conference for the Women’s Film and Literature team members at the OM India headquarters in Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh.
Titled ‘Balance in Life’, the three-day seminar offered 50 women a unique break from their regular hectic schedule on the teams and was a time for introspection and discovering valuable spiritual insights.
The Women’s Film and Literature team members are actively involved in life transforming activities in the areas they work. They work in teams of 4-5 members, sharing God’s word, offering Christian literature and even screening the Dayasagar film (a film based on the life of Jesus with an Indian cast). They visit homes and spend time with local women praying for their needs and encouraging them. They also help start GSCC fellowship groups.
Well-known guest speakers and resource persons were invited for the conference. Among them was Ms. Juliet Thomas, former director of OM India’s Arpana Ministries and author of several books on women and family. She encouraged the women to live a life of love and forgiveness.
Below are testimonials:
“Before I came to the conference I felt worn and out-of-sorts, the sessions on life management helped me realize God could renew my strength.”
“I was so angry about a person who had hurt me in the past. However, the balanced approach that we discussed at this conference helped me realize that I needed to let go of my anger and forgive to become whole again.”
“God taught me to surrender everything to Him in order that I may maintain a balanced life.”
“When I came here I was discouraged but God encouraged me and reminded me that His Word was the truth that would sustain me.”
