The Youth and Student Department of Soppo Field Council of Churches has organized a singles and married conference on the caption “Pathway to a Godly marriage” from Gen. Chapter 29.
The program that held on Saturday 23rd January 2021 at Gethsemane Baptist Church Bokoko witness the presence of young people who came to understand God’s mind concerning marriage, a holy union instituted by Him.
The first lesson was presented by Micheal Njebu, the CBCYSD Soppo Field President on the topic “Relationship and marriage founded on God”. He stated clearly that some marriages are founded on lust, money and wealth but a Godly marriage focuses on the author of marriage. He also encouraged his audience to have a personal relationship with God in order to build a healthy relationship.
Arthur Njume presented on “Truth, honesty and simplicity in a relationship” where he drew inspiration from Matt. 1:18-25 and Luke. 2:1-7. He urged the singles and married to share their past life with those, whom they love, practice sincerity and contentment, be realistic, avoid competition and respect each other.
Those who attended the program said it was powerful and a blessing as they testified of the impact.
The program ended with a question and answer session were a panel of 6 was set up to provide answers to the worries raised by the participants on the topics covered. It was therefore concluded that, every successful marriage is founded on God and nothing else.
