MINISTER'S WIVES RETREAT
Minister's wives have a big role to play in assisting their husbands spiritually, physically and in their congregations. As the co-workers with their husbands they need to be reminded of their role for the spiritual growth of Christians in their congregations. Therefore the Synod believes in sending them for retreats from time to time to remind them of and strengthen their skills.
CCAP Blantyre Synod has more than two hundred Ministers Wives from all the eighteen Presbyteries. Therefore, we have planned that that will go for retreat in three phases. Some will go to Chilema Lay Training Centre, others Chigodi Women Training centre and others to Likhubula Youth Training Centre. This is in order to reduce traveling expenses since the Synod covers the whole Southern Region of Malawi. In these three places, the retreats will be done for three days in those centers.
The retreat will include the following topics:
(a) Home management
(b) Prayer and Spirituality
(c ) Leadership Skills
(d) Health and Hygiene
(f) Women of Excellence and Integrity
(g) Marriage and Christianity in the Family
Attending this retreat will not only remind and strengthen them but also help them to be able to teach Mvano members in their congregations since they have a leading role as Spiritual Mothers.
The total required to be raised is MK1,078,600 which covers transport costs (MK 230,000), Meals (MK 420,000), accommodation (MK 300,000), stationaries (MK 78,600) and medical aid (20,000) and the rest is for contingency (MK 30,000).
If you can help or want to get involved please contact Rev. Kapinda or the Deputy GS.
