“OUR MISSION: BRINGING HIS KINGDOM”



Tthe theme of the conference was “Our Mission: Bringing His Kingdom” and the guest speakers were Fabiana Manzewitsch, who, along with her husband, is the pastor of Vision International Ministries in Argentina; and the Spanish singer-songwriter, writer and pastor, Alex Sampedro.



Fabiana encouraged women to have a faith that breaks protocols, like the woman who touched the mantle of Jesus, understanding that God works with us as vessels of honor that are taken to the Potter's house to be restored.



She also mentioned Hebrews 6:11-12, which says that we must have faith and patience to receive the promises. However, she said these must be accompanied by obedience to fulfil God's purpose.

Alex Sampedro challenged women to be authentic by emphasizing that the Kingdom of God manifests itself in personal relationships, as Jesus did with Zacchaeus or with the Samaritan woman, being close to people and not acting from some kind of moral superiority.



Sampedro said that God is a God, who, like the father of the prodigal son, has forgiven us even before returning home. Fabiana and Alex agreed that people want to see reality and freshness in Christians.



 



WORKSHOPS AND A PANEL ON CURRENT ISSUES



The workshops offered were about very different topics: “Inner health”, by Malú Cardona; “His Kingdom through the youth”, by Alex Sampedro; “His kingdom to those who do not know Him”, by Andy Wickham; “Baptism of the Holy Spirit”, led by Fabiana Manzewitsch; “His Kingdom in the education of children”, by Raquel Manzanaro and “Studying the Bible through technology”, by José Martínez.

On Sunday morning, Alex Sampedro, Cristina Clewett, Carlota Verdura and Fabiana Manzewitsch participated in a panel of questions and answers about current issues, such as gender violence, how to break the prejudices that youth have towards Christians, the use of social media, the role of the church regarding the ideological trends that surround us, among others.



 



WORSHIP TIME AND PEFORMANCES



As every year, the worship time was led Rosa Burguera, singer of the Spanish Christian band Sal150.

Additionally, the YWAM ministry Impact, opened some of the sessions with performances of theatre, dance and choreographies that motivated women not to lose heart or stop praying for their children.



The second annual conference of Aglow will take place next on February, 8-10, in the Spanish city of Calpe.
