Conference Recap

It is really hard to find words to describe PWOCI Conference in Dallas this past weekend. 


Summary: after months of prayer, repentance and worship the leadership and 1400 members of PWOCI met in Dallas to worship, adore and hear from God. He met us. Kari Jobe is an inspired worship leader. Priscilla Shirer is an inspired Bible teacher. The workshops I attended were great. All three Chief of Chaplains were wonderful. God  moved at unexpected times and was welcomed to do so. The body of Christ in all its facets was represented. All manner of worship was welcomed.....from those sitting quietly, to ribbon and flag dancers, raised hands, bowed bodies... What joy to see the body of Christ, united, praising Him as led by His spirit. The fellowship with other Christian Sisters was sweet. The days were long. The responsibilities many. I am humbled to be a part of leadership in an organization whose focus is intimacy with Jesus and service to women associated with the military. I'm still in awe of being allowed by God to present a workshop on intimacy with Him twice at this event.  There was revival in our midst...and I believe it will continue on our local installations.

This conference didn't just "happen". Many spent hours and hours pulling together details. I believe the KEY to this conference was the repentance, worship and prayer that went into each aspect of conference. Once again, a joy to be at PWOCI Conference.

Here are a "few" glimpses of the week.


MANY ministries blessed us....with words and gifts....


Installation of all regional chaplains

Friday we had our Regional Bonding time....Belinda and Renee prepare

Ch. Pace seems to wonder what he's gotten into 

As part of the time, Ch. Pace and I affirmed the Asia Region Board. Mike brought scarves from Afghanistan back and I gifted the ladies with a mantle (symbolizing the mantle they wear in this season). 

 Asian BINGO was a way to mingle
