  • I have already started to do my own budget. I am working on being a better listener; I now pay attention to may facial expressions while listening to my children, a subtle matter that helped both of us immeasurably.

  • I am trying to apply some of the counseling advice I received with my students at school.

  • I always try to take care of others, but this time there was someone taking care of me. The lecture about forgiveness made a huge difference in my life; I changed my attitude towards others. I now share this lesson with my beloved ones.

  • This conference changed my perspective towards myself. It benefited my relationship with my daughter in law and my married daughter with her husband. I learned how to make myself happy, and that nobody can steal my happiness and peace.

  • I shared what I learned from the Network with my prayer group. I turned the material I learnt into a booklet as a gift to encourage them. I will do the same with the ladies’ group I lead.

  • This is the only conference I attended that cared about me.

  • Through your AWT’s 2013 Annual Network Conference, I seized the opportunity and connection with the Haggai Institute Regional Representative in the Middle East and arranged a visit for them to Iraq to create a revival place. I’m now the institute’s coordinator in Iraq. In 2014, I took the chance to offer training services to Iraqi veterans to open more doors for people in Iraq who are in dire need for any sort of help.

  • I found love, care, and encouragement in your treatment; you made me realize that I’m valuable in the eyes of God. The knowledge, experience, and methods you taught us in the training workshops and from following your social media are very beneficial to my well-being. Thanks to you, I now reflect all I learnt with the Syrian Refugees I serve with in Mafraq, Jordan.

  • I’m determined to take care of my health now; I have been encouraged to have more self-control over what I consume and get rid of my old eating habits. Because of that, my husband also got encouraged to follow the same nutritious plan I’m going to follow.

  • You came to my rescue in the toughest two years of my life!

  • I learned this powerful statement: To love others till the end; to the point of washing their feet. God gives heed to “why” not “what”. Every word in the conference influenced me and made a difference, and I felt it was personal to me.

    I came to the conference with lots of questions. Truly, I was given an answer to almost every question I had in mind.

    The lecturer mentioned something that rang in my ear: to have faith even when the eye can’t see but darkness. I came with lots of darkness around me that was making me feel surprised and shocked. But I was encouraged to keep my faith and trust in God, pressing on toward the goal that I want to pursue for the glory of God.

  • I used to think that ministry means full-time, complete-effort and continuous learning, but now I learned that it is a full-time heart.

  • I will be alert to distinguish Satan’s attacks. I know that God can use me mightily as I draw near to him and His word. I learned how to appropriately deal with the different types of characters without hurting feelings, and also how to work humbly in a team.

  • Over the years, I have boasted about belonging to AWT family. And a lot has changed in my life and character. Those who are close to me testify, and especially my husband who continuously encourages me. I have almost collapsed because of my heart that was not able to say no and overpressured with what people say, until I shared my heart with you and recognized that it has been an attack from Satan against my life, trying to hinder my ministry.

  • I have been trained on how to prepare my own training strategy, and gained other skills to support me in my ministry with women.

  • I have grown spiritually. I have a renewed mind. I forgave completely, and I started to lead through the Bible. My character changed and I began to better discern other characters. I have improved in dealing with challenges, and I am being less dependent in relationships; I am leading better at home and my serving methods changed.

  • AWT has brought zeal to my life to turn the learned knowledge into life experience. Things changed in my personal and spiritual life. My mindset changed. I began to take practical steps, set goals and plan for change. I have set my mind to adopt the change I want to see happen in my life, and to be a source of influence and encouragement to others.

  • My prayer life has improved. I know my value in Christ and I trust Him to surpass all challenges and failures, as a result of this I am able to pursue success in my life and ministry. I have been facing obstacles, challenges and frustrations leading the women meeting at my place. I was about to surrender but the positive impact on the women I serve kept me going. AWT gave me a great motive to proceed, and whenever I failed, I used to remember the promises of my value in Christ, in addition to having learned how to manage change in my life. I was able to set goals for my life and have started implementing them.

  • I learned that I need myself to grow to help others whom I serve to grow. It will enable me to serve with love and be influential, equipping servants after God’s heart.

  • AWT helped me to change and thus influenced my circle of influence. I am more transparent with myself and the Lord. My character is changing; I have more love to reach out to others. I have found some tangible change in me. I am helping others to have their minds renewed and get out of the box trapping them in the old thinking patterns.

  • AWT affected my personality in all aspects of my life; spiritual, social, family, educational, business and practical life. During the 10 years of being followed-up by AWT: I have become a mature, confident, literate and educated person. My conduct has radically changed. I started a transparent and faithful life with God. I am more compassionate toward people; forgiveness and love became my weapon. I became capable of teaching others. On the personal level, my life has also changed; I adopted some healthy habits, such as: reading and exercise.

  • Whenever I needed your support, you were there for me. I can positively say that what I am today and the reason behind being a successful Arab woman is because of you and your trainings. You have worked on building my character and my self-esteem. I am richer in spirit, soul and body and thus pouring into others. Your annual conference is rich in nature; it is like harvesting and collecting supplies for the whole year. I will go then to my community and feed them the fat as appropriate to their needs. It is not only me that has been influenced, but I have also influenced others in my church ministry: adults, youth and children. As a result of the material that built me and that I shared; our home meetings started to grow in number to a point where we had to start a family meeting at the church, especially for such topics from AWT.

  • I have a greater level of faith because of meeting other women in the conferences, and seeing how they are taking steps in their lives to serve Jesus. I am challenging myself and pushing my limits to help others in need. The conferences were helpful in terms of understanding myself and my potentials. Now, I started to appreciate myself more; I can love myself and see me influential. I have set out on the journey of change in my life, and would love to create it in other people’s lives.

  • You have given me strength and persistence. You taught me how to refuse timidity and weakness.

  • I am more confident in myself and have built new friendships from other nations and tongues. I used not to mingle but with my own ethnic group, but now I serve in a ministry where I am the only Armenian.

  • AWT has influenced my life and brought radical change in concepts, principles and behaviors. I have explored my identity, overcome failure and now I am pursing change. What I learned has brought about a revolution in my life that I can’t help but share with others. You have believed in us; Arab women. I have been personally encouraged by your love and hospitality.

  • I was able to take decisions in my life of ministry and was writing them down while listening. I had a clear message from the lord: when it comes to the past, I need to stop grabbing things from my old mailbox and even replying to those mails. I have a new address now; it is vision.

  • You have provoked me to get out of my comfort zone. I have taken a serious decision and left my work in order to fulfill my God-given dream to change the community through changing syllabuses.

  • Thank you AWT for helping me think and discern my motives! I believe if I should grab any chance to make my life better; mentally, physically and spiritually, I will see the difference in people's life through influence and thus inspiriting others to live the same life.

  • AWT: You are such an organized ministry. You’re constantly instilling self-confidence and love in us to seek a better life. My life changed and my character is now refined because of your work in my life. I have a higher self-esteem and I am influencing those around me. I have got rid of my negativity; having indulged myself in new positive circles of life.

  • Many things have changed in my life and in the life of others, only because of what I learned; which made a turning point in my mindset and my approach towards others. I have formed a new mindset and gained a new perspective on relationships, and started to act on it.

  • I learned that I am responsible about my thoughts, attitudes, and what the history will write about me.

  • I have met people from different cultures, experiences and ministries. I learned how to work together as a team. I have felt the spirit of love and giving.

  • AWT: you have nourished me spiritually and psychologically. I was able to say, “I love you” to my mom for the first time after many years. I was able to bless those who mistreated me; I was set free!

  • AWT has significantly influenced my life; providing me with many tools that have empowered me in my personal life and ministry. The vital you presented materials have helped many women, too. Arab Woman Today will not only be for today, but will also be for tomorrow and for the coming generations. I knew my identity in Christ. I forgave my abuser. I have a deeper genuine relationship with the Lord. I have purified my motives; I am not a people-pleaser any more. I am serving out of love and not out of obligation right now. I have shared about forgiveness and witnessed many women being healed and set free. They even began to pray and declare blessing over the life of the aggressor. It is a miracle in itself; a story that is worth to be celebrated! I have had pain and suffering for years because of dispute in my own household; as a result all communication was cut-off between brethren, and my heart was broken. I tried several times to fix the relationships, but failed. My participation in AWT 2015 annual network helped me truly understand the true meaning of divine forgiveness. I was able to distinguish between forgiveness and reconciliation. I prayed a lot and shed lots of tears, and released forgiveness with my whole heart. I felt peace that surpasses all understanding. Yet, I have still been waiting upon the Lord to bring reconciliation and it truly occurred last Christmas 2016: I experienced and reaped the harvest of my prayers of many years; I have witnessed my family reunion with complete healing taking place!

  • “It is a dream for many servants to participate in your trainings, to be supported and encouraged along the journey of ministry. Your characters and the way you have been treating us have made a difference in our history. The chances that I have been offered will by faith, courage and commitment, be really effective during the coming period in my life. Since, I will be leading some young girls and women through home counseling sessions.”

  • “It wasn’t by coincident that God gathered us in this place. Personally and faithfully I say that every meeting, sermon, lecture, and word that has been spoken made a difference in me and in my life. However, this tends to leave us with a huge responsibility for the coming period driving us to walk in the plan of God for our lives, so that we can truly make a difference for the glory of His name. Thank you for your hearts and shepherding spirit that have influenced us. I have also been given the chance to meet beautiful Arab women, and through all the training I have learned a lot from them, and I thank God for their lovely hearts.”

  • You came to my rescue in the toughest two years of my life!

  • Ever since I came back from the Network, I have been sharing the topics about change with my family and my women’s group. I took a gesture of encouragement by presenting two gifts to the most interactive women in the group. I am using the ideas I learned in a beautiful creative way. Thank you AWT for your ideas.

  • I once came back home from the network and found that my daughter had painted the wall and the floor in my bedroom black. I was shocked when I saw it; however, I learned in the conference that I should deal with this issue in the a different way. I helped myself move from the shock stage to the integration stage in the cycle of change. I waited to talk to her the next morning, but I did not scold her. She immediately apologized and helped me remove the paint.

  • I thank all who prepared for the conference. I worked with my kids on the crafts we did at the conference. They enjoyed them a lot. My daughter told me she will teach them to her friends at school.

  • I set goals to walk through them in the change process, and I started to implement them by the grace of the Lord. However, it is not easy and the devil resists our change fiercely, but we will continue by the power of the Lord.

  • I took a decision to spend one hour daily with my kids reading stories. My favorite hour of the day.

  • I took a decision to spend one hour daily with my husband and children without any kind of media or internet distraction. After the first day, my kids did not want to go to bed. They told me, “Let’s keep on talking. Let’s talk every day.”

  • I gave training to those assisting us in ministry using the material I learned. I have shared what I learned with my friends, family and our youth group at church. People began to take practical steps toward change in their lives. I really can’t wait for next year to see what God has in store for me, so as to benefit and share the benefit with others!

  • Thank you for the very useful conference. I needed such teaching, especially because I serve in Sudan, a country that is in great need for change and development. Hopefully, when South Sudan gets more stable, we will invite you to witness the fruit of your big work, because your work does not go in vain in the eyes of the Lord.

  • Thank you for your support, continuous help, and follow-up on every phase at a time. I had an achievement and a new change in my life to announce: I lost 4.5 kilograms.

  • Change management is what I needed in this stage of my life which is witnessing a lot of sudden changes, whether in the place of residence, health, or service. The conference raised my awareness on how to deal with sudden change.

  • I have developed a change plan in my life in regards to my daily program which is heavily-occupied with tasks. I began to dedicate a special time to my family more than before. I have also worked to change the quality of my food, since I have been neglecting myself a lot lately. I started to choose healthy food, in order to be able to do my tasks as a mother, a wife, an employee, and a servant in the church.

  • The conference was a turning point for me. I have first true love for the first time in my life. I felt belonging and acceptance in your group more than anything else.

  • The conference helped me to spend more time with family. It helped me know how to deal with the death of my grandmother. It helped me prioritize my Sundays to go to church. I thank you so very much for the opportunity that introduced me to the amazing work you are doing. May the Lord bless you in every way and I hope to see you in another conference.

  • Many things changed in my life and character. The conference was influential!

  • I was astonished by the high standard of organization and attention-to-detail, besides the care shown by the serving staff. On the ministry level, this participation gave me great motivation to change the method we follow in ministry in Aleppo.

  • I would like to share with you what my roommate at the Network told me. At the beginning, she couldn’t believe that someone cares about her, considering that she has always been suffering from marginalization, negligence and demolition. She told me that she was overwhelmed with joy when you tried persistently to call her, facing a hard time to get her personal phone number. She thanked the lord for you because you are the only people who have lifted her up and appreciated her. Thank you.

  • Many thanks to all ministry staff, the conference was a blessing to me. Honestly, I came to the conference burdened with and puzzled about several things, but the Lord directed my heart and mind.

  • I went back to Lebanon with a different mindset; I joined school in order to start working on my intellectual skills. I studied high school with teenagers. They made fun of my age. At first it was hard; I used to go back home with tears in my eyes each day because I didn’t understand what the teacher was talking about but God helped me get through it. I passed my exams and successfully finished high school. My life has changed since I started to attend AWT Annual Network Conference. The blessings were also poured out on my husband and children. I gave the material I learned to my daughter whom I hope to be able in her turn to attend such a conference. I would like her to learn how to be an effective woman in the society; serving other women and proclaiming that the woman has value.

  • I have been praying for such an opportunity. I acquired many ideas and was challenged in the way I view things. I learned a lot!

  • The Lord has heard my cry and my need. He brought me to this conference, spoke to me and met my needs.

  • My vision is to be involved in helping people of God reach their potential and become free from their bondage and insecurities.

  • Thank you for providing the opportunity to be with women from many Arab countries, where we get to share experiences in a rich way!

  • It is important to me to learn how to write down my vision, how to set goals according to God's will, l and how to start to work being led by that.

  • I have learned how to rest and have peace in the Lord knowing that He is in control no matter what!

  • The day after the conference was over; I faced a crisis at my working place. I was able to face the situation with courage and calmness, applying the practical principles I learned about crises management.
