Victory Ministries International in Port Elizabeth held its third annual ladies high tea event on Saturday, June 30 at the New Worship Auditorium in Standford Road, Gelvan Park. The build-up to the event was incredible. There was much excitement over the weeks before the event as young and old prepared for this special day.
Pastor Jerome Liberty shared some encouraging words with the ladies and told them to press on and be pioneers in their fields of gifting. This year’s theme was Moroccan inspired. An array of bejeweled colors, fabrics and Moroccan cuisine was on display.
“It was a really good function. I learnt a lot from this high tea,” said one of the hostesses.
“The high tea event just gets better with every year,” said one of the guests.
Some ladies said they experienced God through personal excellence and sharing of ideas at the high tea. Pastor Eunice Liberty’s aim was to take the ordinary woman to a place where she begins to experience the extraordinary as being ordinary. First prize winner, Natasha Geswint, described her experience as being an unforgettable one, and thanked her pastors for creating an opportunity for women to discover the creative gifts hidden within them. The ladies went to every length to prepare for this highly prestigious event. A high level of excellence was evident from the laying of table cloths, to the pouring of each cup of tea, right up to the cleaning-up process.
“Husbands also assisted with preparations and some were left with Moroccan headaches and pains,” one of the husbands quipped. Janice Liberty entertained the ladies with a sketch of an artist with her own struggles. The high tea was declared a rousing success and plans are already being made for the 2013 event.
