Former Keep The Faith columnist, Gladys Famoriyo, recently hosted her first ever Overcoming Emotional Baggage (OEB) women’s weekend retreat, themed ‘Restored and Refreshed’, which resulted in an attendee experiencing physical healing.
The attendee, Ruth Pearson, shared: “I came into the retreat lame, literally, as a result of a longstanding illness. I arrived in a scooter, but left leaping, running and dancing. My physiotherapists, who saw me before and after, were confounded and simply wrote ‘walking miracle’ in my notes. My lungs also got better, and I could now take deep breaths.”
Ruth was one of many ladies who experienced restoration and transformation at the retreat, and many were able to overcome longstanding issues and gain renewed hope following a session on forgiveness, emotional wellbeing and suffering.
Gladys Famoriyo, an inspirational speaker, author and founder of Overcoming Emotional Baggage, explained the reasoning behind the retreat. She said: “For some years now, our conference/event attendees have been asking for further services/events to support them through challenging/changing life experiences. They wanted more than what they felt was currently available. Therefore, our goal is to meet these needs, and support the body of Christ through such initiatives.”
Ms Famoriyo is putting plans in motion to organise more initiatives to help women deal with the personal struggles they are experiencing.
