TriMission wide Shepherdess International Certification Seminar Level II with the theme “Ablaze with Jesus” was held on May 17-19, 2018 at Davao Mission Headquarters, 5 Palm Drive, Bajada, Davao City. This is participated by the SI’s coming from three missions; Davao Mission, Northeastern Mindanao Mission, and Southern Mindanao Mission.
The seminar was spearheaded by our very own SPUC SI coordinator, Mrs. Rufina Gulfan supported by the three participating missions’ SI coordinators; namely, Mrs. Beth Rosa of SMM, Mrs. Marivic Saramosing of NEMM and Mrs. Marilyn Moralde of DM. They were also the lecturers of the said seminar and they discussed about the following topics; time management, managing conflict creatively, self-esteem, money management, and dealing with anger. The seminar was supposed to guide the wives of the pastors in becoming effective women leaders, supportive wives in the ministry and faithful servants of God.
Aside from the lectures, there were also invited speakers that gave inspiration to the SI’s during the morning and evening devotionals. We were blessed to have such dynamic speakers: Pr. Edwin T. Magdadaro – President of Davao Mission; Pr. Alex Necessario – Executive Secretary of Davao Mission; and, Mrs. Zenaida Necessario – the wife of Pr. Alex Necessario. They all inspired us to be ABLAZE WITH JESUS.
This trimission-wide seminar enabled the shepherdesses to meet, get acquainted with each other, form a special bond among ministers’ wives, share and inspire each other. The program ended with renewal of commitment where we prayed for each other to always be ablaze with Jesus even with different challenges in the ministry.
