On October 6-7, 2018, there was a Women Fellowship in St. Petersburg "Mission to Serve". The meeting brought together 24 people from the corps of the Salvation Army in Russia (Northern District).
Women from St. Petersburg, Novgorod the Great, Murmansk and Petrozavodsk took part in the Fellowship.
The Fellowship was led by retired Major Maria Kharkov, she held sessions during the first day. The meeting was very productive, there was a friendly Christian atmosphere.
Women shared the experience of the women's ministry in their corps, learned a new song. It was very interesting to hear the sisters from various corps and their witnesses of service to God.
The meeting covered such important topics as “Features of social and spiritual care for seriously ill patients” and “Anti-human trafficking.” Sessions were interactive, where everyone could take part in the discussion.
A fair of crafts and souvenirs was also organized.
The Fellowship ended with an inspiring Sunday meeting, where we heard a sermon from retired major Natalia Vandysheva.
