The ACLC Women in Ministry cut the cake of Victory !
“Women – God’s Heralds of Good News for the Family, the Community, the Nation and the World”
On July 7th, the 5 cities national subregional tour will come to Dallas, Texas. Rev. Marilyn Kotulek said “Mother Moon is transforming the world. And now she is extending that holy spirit power through ACLC Women in Ministry to the Women in clergy of America.” New York recently became such an amazing event – a gathering of 125 wonderful clergy and brothers and sisters especially welcoming address by President of Family Federation for a Heavenly USA Rev. Richard Buessing and the Director of Northeast Sub-Region 2, Rev. Demian Dunkley encouraged all the pastors to stand with True Mother and lead the world to Peace ! The event was held at 43rd Street in Manhattan which is the home of the Manhattan Family Church.
It started by Praise and worship lead by ACLC New York City Co-Chair, Bishop Jesse Edwards. The Holy Spirit always moves in and through him in a most powerful way that created an atmosphere of excitement and holy expectation.
We are grateful for the tremendous support of the pastors and ACLC Leaders of Sub- Region 2 and New York Family Church members organized by Rev. Tanya Edwards.
Archbishop Sulanch Lewis Rose– ACLC National Co- President and ACLC Women In Ministry Co- Chair did a magnificent work leading the whole program as the MC. We started on time and finished on time with a great spirit! A big thanks to Archbishop Lewis!
ACLC National Senior Co-Chairman, Archbishop George Stallings supported Women with total spiritual awakening by introducing the seminar lead by Women Clergy. Thanks to him for understanding the role of Women. We felt True Father’s heart of encouragement to Women.
The First presentation of True family Values teaching was “God’s original ideal” by Rev. Zena Sykes – Co- Pastor of United Missionary Baptist Church. She gave the presentation with such a bright and loving spirit that even Savannah – the Granddaughter of Archbishop Lewis heard some of the contents and got serious saying “is that true that we need to love our enemies?”
The next presentation was “What Went Wrong” by Dr. Patra Kidwell – Senior Pastor of God’s Ministry International. She gave such a powerful presentation that many amazing reports came after the discussion.
One minister said she thought the fruit was a literal fruit until now, but now she understand it is love and love relationship. Group discussions were followed by excellent reports and reflections. Pastor Joel Barnaby, who brought outstanding elders from the “Greater Philadelphia Church” inspired all with his depth of clarity about scripture and a moving and honest reflection on how when he was younger he wanted to strike
back at someone doing wrong, but was touched by the Holy Spirit and instead gave love. Dr. Madeleine Clark-Harris, from Delaware, gave a powerful reflection with such anointing that the audience felt was awakened to the presence of God! Dr. Tadaki Shimmyo, President Emeritus of UTS explains how St. Clementine and other Catholic Saints said the Fall was the misuse of love.
After the lunch, Rev. Marilyn Kotulek and Min. Reiko Jenkins – Co- Chairs of ACLC WIM gave an introduction to ACLC Women In Ministry and shared True Mother is the Only Begotten Daughter and we are to be begotten daughters and sons of God for our own Clans and Tribes.
Dr. Michael Jenkins – ACLC national Co- Chair with Mrs. Jenkins held Holy Wine Ceremony calling all the married couples to receive God’s anointing as “Blessed Couples” through the Blessing of True Parents – extending the grace of Jesus from the individual to the marriages and families.
The Final Highlight was the Keynote speech by Rev. Faith Barnaby – Rev. Tanya Edwards’ mother. Her absoluteness to God and her faith which she has Walked with until today was a true testimony for us to learn so deeply. Every word she spoke was a spiritual food to all of us. She is a living example of living God’s words for all of us. Thank you so much Rev. Barnaby!!
We truly enjoyed the fellowship and hearing all the messages. We concluded with the final prayer.
Thank you for all the support for this event to be successful.
