Our 3rd annual Women’s Conference took place on the 13th of May at LIV Durban where over 430 women gathered for a day of worship, teaching, community and great food! The theme for this year was “Love God, Love your Neighbour”, and we unpacked Mark 12 with our amazing speakers, Zizipho Ludidi, Leah Moodley and Jo Wynn. 

It was beautiful to see women from all walks of life coming together to praise God, pray together, enjoy a time of fellowship and listen to three guest speakers sharing on what it means to love God, live a surrendered life, know your identity in Him and to love each other.

One of our wonderful mums, Mum Brenda has shared a testimony from the day. “Greetings all in Jesus Name. My name is Brenda, known as Ma at LIV Village. I have been a Forster mother for 2 years with the most beautiful 7 children.

I love my family, but my health has been getting me down. I would constantly be in pain, at times I could not walk, or needed a walking stick to get around. After some clinic visits and blood tests I was told I have Gout and Arthritis, and medication would not help on most days. I would cry to God, when will I be set free of this pain?

Then my breakthrough and miracle happened on 13th May 2023 at our Liv Women’s Conference after our first session. While the ladies were going for prayer I was crying in the spirit and a lady from another table came to me and said ‘My dear sister I have a word for you from the holy spirit. Firstly, stop doubting yourself, and start forgiving those around you because it’s you that is stopping your blessings and healing from taking place.’ So I started to pray and call out names of people that had hurt and brought me down.

After that while still in the Conference my body started to feel lighter and I was free to Worship. My leg was set free from pain and I started to walk firm and steady without a limp, and my cousin that attended the Conference noticed and said ‘Wow you are no longer limping’. I said yes all Glory to my Lord Jesus for healing me. Since then, I have not needed to take medication. I feel whole and new. If God can do it for me he can do it for anyone. I now have a different relationship with my Father in heaven. I am so grateful for the LIV Conference and for my Healing, God bless.”

We gifted all the ladies with a bag of goodies, including purses and keyrings from Thandana, shower gels, lotions and perfume sprays from O So Heavenly, and pens and notebooks from Sokha. We even had some beautiful Thandana bags to give as prizes for the best-dressed ladies, newest Mom, and oldest attendee, etc. 

We would like to thank everyone who made this event possible! We truly believed many hearts were touched by the love of Jesus and lives will be forever changed for His Glory.
