YWAM Pakistan Hosts Historic Event for Women

Tamara Neely : Feb 27, 2009  ASSIST News

"Some of our best students are ladies! They understand children, the elderly, their communities. They are used to hard work and have faced many difficulties. A new generation of more educated Christian ladies in particular are eager, through God, to change their nation for the good."

(Karachi, Pakistan)—Anticipation for Pakistan's first large Christian Women's Leadership Conference is building as next week over 5,000 women are expected to gather in Karachi for an historic event—a conference for Christian women who want to grow in their capacity as leaders.

YWAM PakistanYWAM Pakistan Chairman, Zafar Francis MA (London) PgDip, opened the YWAM Pakistan training centre in Karachi in 2008 and is thrilled to pioneer this groundbreaking event in partnership with Universal Gospel Assemblies International, Karachi.

"I am hoping our Pakistani women will realize their worth before God and move into the leadership roles He has designed for them in our nation and beyond," Zafar reports.

"Some of our best students are ladies! They understand children, the elderly, their communities. They are used to hard work and have faced many difficulties. A new generation of more educated Christian ladies in particular are eager, through God, to change their nation for the good."

Rosemary James MA (Oxon) MSc (London) MA (SOAS) DIC and a multi-generational team of intercessors from Harpenden, YWAM England will be joining the young ladies from the Karachi Discipleship Training School who will be sharing their testimonies at the conference, presenting Bible dramas and gaining vital public leadership experience. This prepares them for yet another event, one for youth that they plan to host later this year.

"These events aim to kick start a movement, igniting the hope that is in our women and young people, to build up their faith and help to raise up a generation to reach out to the poor and needy," explains Zafar. "We want to assist them to engage with the social and spiritual realities that create poverty and suffering. They are the future for the transformation of cities and for the relief and development we long to see take place in impoverished communities and tribes around the nation."
