of Destiny- Caribbean & Latin America Women’s
Conference and Production - 2000.
God has blessed us with the vision, expertise and wisdom
needed to execute these plans. We intend to challenge and eradicate the
foolish notion that women’s interaction with each other is superficial
and often fraught with conflict by teaching women to embrace each other
to quicken the healing processes which is needed in their lives.
Our Conference will kick off with a full scale drama,
dance & musical production entitled “From Brokeness to Wholeness”,
written by Ms. Tweann Hall.
This production will be held at the Daphne Joseph-Hackette
Theatre, Queen’s Park, November 3, 4, 10 & 11, 2000. The cast
of this production is drawn from the Barbados Youth for Christ Drama Group
under the direction of Ms. Evelyn Broomes.

• To bring women from dormancy to full purpose in
God so they can impact the Family, Church and Society, through their experiences,
gifting, finances and love.
• To offer hope in the face of hopelessness.
• To prepare and equip God’s women for the
future, by breaking the barriers, which mask past hurts and begin peal
away the layers of falseness that pervades our homes, churches and society.
• To begin to mend their brokeness.

has been very good. We have so far gained the support of Church leaders

Church community. The services of a PR Consultant were recently acquired
to assist in devising and branding and communications strategies.
