As of 31/03/2019, Youth for Spiritual Awakening (JRS), represented by Miss Esther Atosha, held a closing ceremony of Women's Month. Its theme was "THE IMPACT OF CHRISTIAN WOMEN IN SOCIETY. "
We had three women pastors as speakers. This deserve to be congratulate because not long ago, the woman could not assume this function because it was said, the word of God says that a woman can not stand or teach in the assembly where he there are men.
The first speaker read us a passage from the Bible in the book of Numbers 27: 1-11 which tells us of Zelophehad, a man who had no sons, after his death one could not give the inheritance to his daughters by law. These girls presented themselves to Moses, who was their leader because they did not accept that their father's name be cut off from his family for not having sons. They rose up against winds and swamps to claim their rights. Moses seeing that the question was complex, brought the cause to the Lord. And Jehovah said to Moses, The daughters of Zelophehad were right. They were also given their share. Why does the world seek to discriminate against us when God the creator of all does not? Even though men of bad faith say that it is through women that sin entered the world, God in His righteousness has made salvation come only through women! Let these daughters of Zelophehad serve us as an example, let us rise to break the laws that prevent us from being on the same footing as men because God has tamed us with the same capacities.
The second speaker spoke of a sub-theme: "The woman facing the family and the ministry". She told us about Deborah a woman of the Bible who in addition to her concerns of mother, wife and housewife, was a prophetess and judge in Israel.
She wanted to show us that this is possible provided you know how to balance the two. There are four things to do to succeed:
1. Know your identity. Genesis 2: 11. The Bible says that the woman is a helper. The help must be strong because it is he who works more than his holder. We are therefore strong to come to the aid of men.
2. Take responsibility so be able to give solutions to problems experienced.
3. Know your call: Do not be touching everything because we say "who too kisses badly hugged. "
4. Know how to manage time. "Time is money". You have to give a time for everything.
The third dealt with a sub-theme: "How to balance the home and its profession".
The speaker, starting from her example, showed us how she balances her home and her profession with a view to bringing youth to good behavior in the present time and in the future. The family that is the basis of society must be well maintained. Our society is sick because our families are sick.
In the end They presented girls who manage by creating income generating activities such as sewing, catering services, wedding dresses ... These activities make them autonomous. The girl who does nothing, is forced to have a boyfriend to take charge but for his life.
The ceremony ended with a dinner where our young sisters shared us about their cooking skills. As I see it, the girl or woman begins to become aware of her identity and is determined to move forward.
I believe that the change machine has started in our country.
