The “Talitha Cumi” conference in Despatch, Eastern Cape, on Saturday May 5 is especially aimed at women who wear masks to hide their pain, hurt and disappointments, say the event hosts who are also the organisers of the annual God’s Karoo Women conference.
The conference name echoes the Aramaic words that Jesus spoke to a dying girl, urging her to arise.
The aim of the event is to meet the needs of women who have given up hope and who desperately need a touch of the Lord who wants to raise them out of their “dead” situation and fill them with new life and hope.
“It is also for ladies who would just like to come and hear how to be there for someone in distress, or just want to be uplifted themselves, then this is the place to be,” say the organisers.
The conference will be at the AGS Lighthouse Church in De Lange Street, Despatch from 9am to 5pm on May 5. The cost, which includes a light meal, is R50. More information is available at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 326 2089.
