Our women’s conference/retreat “Open the Treasure Box” took place yesterday. I (Yulia) was one of the organizers of this event. It was great to see so many happy ladies, and their enthusiasm for our conference. One of the goals for holding a conference for women was to give them a feeling of celebration in their lives. We successfully met that goal!
We had several excellent speakers. Yulia Dyakune was a special highlight. She opened up her heart, sharing deeply about her life, the sickness and death of her husband, how she lived through that trial and how God strengthened her and brought her peace. Another goal of the conference was that we wanted women to grow closer to one another in relationship, to become true friends and just be real with one another. I think that Yulia D. and our other speakers helped us reach this goal.
