False Bay Circuit Women’s Manyano held a three-day convention at Andrew Lusaba Society recently.

The aim of the gathering was to empower women spiritually and also to plough back to the community by means of giving to the less fortunate.

Themed “Rise Up, Take Courage And Serve in Christ’s Name”, the convention was opened by Reverend Mama Tolashe on Friday.

On Saturday Reverend Mama Seheri took the reins of the programme where she urged the women to be less judgemental in their faith by quoting John 8:11.

The women visited the homes of the less- privileged and gave them well-needed presents like food and clothes

The highlight of the convention was the welcoming of “new mothers”- a step symbolising graduating from sisterhood into full womanhood, over which President Mama Maseti presided.

The healing service was conducted Reverend Mlaba and it “touched on the lives of women.”

The Sunday session was opened by Vice President Mama Kwayi who reminded women about the importance of praying steadfastly, quoting 1 Samuel 1:26.

Concluding the convention with a potent sermon was Reverend VG Maseti who stuck to the theme of women’s faith, citing the example of Hanna who uttered these words “I prayed for this boy, and the Lord has given me the request I asked of Him.”
