What I learned from 2 weeks of back to back Conferences.
Talk about a whirlwind adventure!
We just finished hosting two amazing Open Heavens conferences at Miracle Arena For All Nations. The first in Edmonton, the second in Calgary. The experience was life-changing. We gain so much wisdom and were especially blessed by the ministration of Prophet Samuel Addison.
First, we did 4 nights in Edmonton, at the Royal Palace.
I personally took on a lot of responsibilities with organizing hospitality for our guest Prophet Addison, who came to us all the way from Ghana. I prepared a fruit basket, thank you cards, and more because we really wanted to show our love and appreciation to The Man of God.
At the same time, my husband took care of 100 other details all while training our team to serve during the conferences.
And our daughters Chipo and Chido tagged along.
Thankfully our team is really supportive and helped watch and entertain them throughout.
Our days started early, with a plethora of errands.
Lots of running around to pick up last minute items and coordinate everything. Then a quick nap for the girls while I showered, cooked something quick and got ready for the evening.
At 5:30 pm we made our way down the icy roads to the conference.
Of course, we got our first round of real snowfall the day the conference began and it never really let up. This is where my years of driving in Yellowknife on the ice roads really paid off!
The conference started at 6:30 pm with worship and prayers. Then the Prophet came in and taught us all valuable lessons, both spiritual and practical. After we experienced his powerful healing, deliverance and the prophetic ministry.
Every service ended around 10:30 pm, but our team still had a couple hours of work left to do after everyone else left.
In Calgary, we did the same thing, but with a smaller team. Our 3-night conference was extended to 5, then cut down to 4. The only thing you can do is just roll with it.
This is where our skills really got refined!
The days were filled with evangelism.
The evenings filled with the prophetic.
The nights filled with Denny’s!
This level of work can work up a real appetite!
As you can see, Chipo was there well past midnight, bright eyed and bushy tailed throughout. Chido lay sleeping in the car seat beside me.
It was intense.
Behind the scenes, I dealt with all the things I do at home; meals, baths, cranky kids, diapers, but all from a
tiny cozy hotel room.
At the conference several ladies came up to me and said;
“You are so strong!”
I, of course, said, “Thank you!” Eagerly eating up the praise as I simultaneously bounced a baby, supervised a toddler, sang a praise song and led a prayer.
On one hand, I felt like the super mom I’ve always longed to be. Dressed up, doing it all, making it look easy.
On the other hand, I was so appreciative of the acknowledgment that this is not at all easy.
But, when I later reflected on that statement I realized something profound.
I am not strong.
I’m not strong at all. The only reason I was able to do everything during those crazy days was because of an essential decision I made years ago.
To love and serve God and submit my life to Him.
That decision has guided everything I have done since. It allows me to discern the important and relevant tasks and responsibilities from expectations and busyness that are imposed upon me by myself and others.
If I had tried to do these things on my own, it would have been a disaster.
I would have been completely overwhelmed. Would have worried myself silly over the fact that our kids completely missed their bedtimes and Chipo was living off of McDonald’s happy meals for two weeks. I’d have stressed about the financial strain of sowing into the ministry at this level. I would have complained about the clothes I had and didn’t have. I’d resented not having any time to relax with my family.
But with God, I can live worry-free.
I’m so grateful for the peace that the Lord gives me each day, especially through these intense seasons of growth. He leads me and lights my path on this great commision.
Sometimes I look at the level we are at and the level of our Papa, Prophet Kofi Danso.
I have often found myself silently praying that God won’t take us up to that level because it’s insane!
The man never sleeps. Never eats and is traveling All The Time!
But, if that’s what God asks of us, I’ve already determined in my heart that I’m willing to go.
Even if it’s not something I’m making prayer requesting for right now.
After all, “ I can do all thing’s through Christ who strengthens me” Philippians 4:13
