The weekend of November 5-7 Oklahoma Church Members enjoyed a prayer conference at Wewoka Woods.
The speakers were Carlos Craig, Southwestern Union President; pastors; Tony Anoble and Oswaldo Rigacci; and pastor Helvis Moody the Southwestern Union prayer ministry leader. Pastor Daniel Ortega, the Oklahoma Conference youth and young adult leader also helped.
A music group from Southwestern Adventist University blessed the participants. Our theme was “Pray Big." The idea is that we have a great and awesome God, with whom nothing is impossible, and we should not be hesitant to ask God for great things for His glory and purpose and our needs and ministries.
The format was short devotionals and then quality time to pray together in small groups about the message, asking God to do something special in our families, churches, and state.
Many prayers were sent up to God and we believe they are already being answered. During Sabbath afternoon there was a special training time by the Union officers for the elders from the Spanish Churches. What a blessing that was for the leaders and pastors of those churches.
Many others went into Wewoka praying with people door-to-door to pray and handing out literature. It was a great weekend of spiritual teaching, prayers, training, and mission work.
