October and November saw GIRL POWER at The River!

The last few months of 2014 were an awesome, crazy, phenomenal blur!  So much happened in such a short amount of time!  We're going to try and fill you in as best we can!

October saw the launch of Shine HOPE in Asia!!
Shine HOPE, from Hillsong Australia, is a new program, aimed at girls and women who are at risk of being trafficked.  It is about clarifying the understanding about the existence of human trafficking and about bringing value and worth to women.  Reminding them that they are beautiful, unique, and PRICELESS!

More than 30 key women's leaders from all over Asia came to attend the training, hosted by the lovely Nandi Spry from Hillsong Sydney.

Not long after this successful week of training, we hosted our magnificent 
Women's Conference - Full Life Begins!  
Around one hundred women come to our Training Centre, where our River Team hosted one of the best conferences yet!    It is astounding to see, when our team gets together - that anything is possible!

We had 2 guest speakers join us for the conference - Ps Rachel Mawston from Hillsong Brisbane, and Ps Barbara Nield from Tweed Coast Church.  They both came with powerful messages that changed lives.

We also spent the afternoons of the conference, training our delegates on Shine HOPE. We are so excited to have this in Asia, and the impact it's going to have on women all over this region!

Amongst many amazing God-moments, one definitely stood out: A friend from a creative access area found freedom and new life in her Saviour. This life will be a catalyst for many more transformations to come!

The River December was just as big with all our Christmas Festivities!
Stay tuned for more to come!!
