PERM – On November 1 to 3, a National women conference “Living by the Word” took place in Perm. Larissa Grabovenko, wife of the Head Bishop, head of women’s ministry department of the Russian Church of Christians of Evangelical Faith was a speaker at the conference. Guest speakers for the second year in a row were Sharon Daugherty, pastor of Victory Christian Center (Talsa, USA) and Anna Kristiansen, pastor of Church of Christ (Norway).
The key topic of “Housebuilding of God” conference was based on verse 10 of chapter 3 in 1 Corinthians: “But each man must be careful how he builds”.
The speakers encouraged girls and women to build the Kingdom of God in their families, churches and communities. They taught that the love to the Word of God is the strong foundation of Christian life. The anointed sermons of Larissa, Sharon and Anna were completed by workshops, such as “How to hear God’s voice”, “Healthy girl – beautiful woman”, “Eutrophy and human health”, “Swindle prevention”.
Guests from all over Russia visited Perm. Many participants of the conference testified that they experienced special God’s presence and the Holy Spirit touch.

Anna Susekova, Perm: “Praise God for the annual women’s conference! Sharon Daugherty and Anna Kristiansen powerfully inspired women to be wise housebuilders of God, and to build their Christian life on four important truths: reading the Bible, prayer, fellowship and giving”.
Gulnara Kazymova, Solikamsk: “Women’s conference is a fire! Wonderful time of being filled with the Holy Spirit and healed!

On the final day of the conference one of them received healing of her soul and body”.
