From the evening of 5 May to Saturday 6 May, Gwydion and Catrin Lewis welcomed approximately 20 ladies to the EMW pastors’ wives conference in Bryn y Groes, Bala.
With the theme ‘Keep on keeping on’, the conference was hosted delightfully by Marcia McLean, and the wives came together to learn from Tim and Wendy Gill of Newtown Evangelical Church, and enjoy some sweet fellowship together.
Those who had arrived on the Friday evening enjoyed a more informal time and an interview with Wendy Gill. More joined on Saturday, when Wendy spoke on ‘Christ’s strength and our weakness’ as she shared her experiences as a minister’s wife. This was followed by a stimulating question time and a lovely lunch. The day finished with Tim Gill speaking helpfully on ‘Treasures in jars of clay’.
It was a joy to spend some time with other pastors’ wives, recharge the batteries and return home refreshed to our families and churches, after being reminded ‘we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us’.
