Glow Women's Conference

We had a fantastic time of fellowship, encouragement, and community at the GLOW Uganda Women's Revival Conference at the end of November 2021.

The conference included time of spiritual renewal, as well as medical and dental clinics for the ladies. There were games, dramas, and of course, a lot of singing and dancing!



GLOW also hosted a Leader's Retreat in January 2022. The equipping of the group leaders is so important as their creativity, motivation, and energy set the tone for the group. We discussed managing group dynamics, good leadership characteristics, and business planning and growth. We were so encouraged by their enthusiasm! GLOW Uganda held a revival conference starting 26th to 28th November 2021 at Kigezi High School

in Kabale District. Our theme was taken from Luke 10: 41 “Martha, Martha,” the Lord

answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, 42 but few things are

needed—or indeed only one.[a] Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be

taken away from her.”

The conference was attended by 260 participants. Of which 240 were women from the 8 GLOW

groups from Kabale and Rubanda districts and 20 girls from the GLOW skills center.

The Conference was centered on Discipleship, Mentorship and Health Promotion. We are glad to

report to you that the conference was a success by the grace of God but also because of your

generous and committed support. We thank you and pray that God will bless you.



Health Screening & Treatment


Screening and Oral Health Promotion

We had Health Talk by Dr. Gilbert Mateka who

emphasized the relationship between stress and

lifestyle disease and also shared tips on how to

manage stress, top on the list being the one

thing that Mary had chosen. After the talks a

team from Rugarama hospital lead by Dr

Mateeka set up a clinic where members

consulted about the different health challenges

they were facing. Members also had their blood

pressure and random blood sugar checked and

those who were found sick were referred to

Rugarama hospital

58 clients had their BP Checked, 13 were

referred to Rugarama hospital for treatment

while 10 needed monitoring

53 ladies had their random blood sugar tested,

10 were referred to Rugarama hospital for

treatment while 5 needed monitoring

Dental Screening & Treatment

Dr Brian Rushaju of RUN Dental also shared

oral hygiene tips and illustrated how to brush

right without hurting your gum. 120 women

were screened, 95 treated and 75 referred for

secondary treatment, only 25 of the 120 did not

have dental problems




DISCIPLESHIP & MENTORSHIP


Through, Teaching, drama, and Music the

message of the encouragement and mentorship

was passed on to the partcipants.

The Girls (who train at the GLOW skills center

lead us through a thunderous Praise & Worship,

I could see freedom and liberation as the women

danced and sang praises to God. Rev Jasper

Tumuhimbise took us through another Theme

Exposition & prayer response after his teaching,

more women came to the Lord in surrender

choosing the one thing Mary had chosen.

Our next topic was WHO AM I and

Mrs. Enid Origumisiriza lead us through this

topic, helping members to understand who God

says they are and sharing her testimony of Gods

power, love and faithfulness to her as a young

widow who lost her husband to HIV, but the

Lord spared her and helped her raise her

daughters who are all now well married off and

successful. Glow supports over 60 widows, this

testimony and teaching on believing who God

says we are stirred up the women to believe that

if they chose him they can do all things through

Christ.

Prayer and Deliverance

Two prayer and deliverance sessions were held

on Saturday night and Sunday morning.

Rev Augustus Ainebyoona led the participants

through a prayer and deliverance sessions , we

witnessed the power of God delivering and

healing the oppressed, broken, bitter, wounded ,

the faithless and hopeless as well as the Holy

Spirit filling and baptizing some of them .

On Sunday 28th Rev. Ainebyoona shared on the

topic WHY AM HERE? Why am I here while

Rev Jasper closed and commissioned the

women to go out and use their spiritual gifts to

serve the Lord by serving others.

We then invited members to share testimonies.

They were amazing. We have detailed accounts

of some of the testimonies which will be written

in our end of year newsletter.
