The 2010 Ministers Conference was my first conference at The River. In the services that I had the privilege to sit through I really felt my spirit begin to stir with a hunger to see my home country set on fire again. In the Saturday morning service the power of God hit me so hard that all I could do was just weep before Him as he broke my heart for The Great South Land of The Holy Spirit. If that was merely the spark that ignites the fire of God in my home country then it will be a raging inferno that sweeps the land with no limits and no boundaries.
I know God has been stretching me and molding me and being a part of the Helps Ministry during Ministers Conference has really changed my view on how a church should function behind the scenes. The things I have learnt about anointed service and serving with a spirit of excellence have been amazing and all were confirmed by the positive reactions of the visiting Ministers. Most of these things are totally new to me because they virtually don’t exist in a lot of the churches that I grew up in.
As Minister’s Conference drew near, there was an expectation of something grand that the Lord was going to do in my life. I did not know exactly what it was but I did know that something was going to be done. Throughout the Conference it was as if faith was being injected into me everyday. At the beginning of the week, I was feeling like in a lull but as the days went by I felt that something was happening on the inside.
God definitely was expanding my territory and strengthening and encouraging me to believe beyond where I was at. I opened up my heart to the greater things that God has for my life and I chose not to limit Him in what He wants to do in my life. It is very easy to remain in what I know rather than to venture out into the unknown where it is new and uncomfortable.
My faith rose up as the week went by and it was what I needed to confront the challenges that would come my way by the end of the week. I was able to take on the obstacle by faith and in victory by trusting in all that I heard throughout the week being reminded of how God would supply and meet my every need. In the end, God did come through in a way that was unexpected but it was an example of trusting God and believing Him with no limits and no boundaries. I thank God for what He is doing in me and it was a blessing to be at the Minister’s Conference this year.
