Women told to have faith during trials

Women across the country regardless of culture and denomination are encouraged to always have faith during times of trial.

The Wesleyan Church national women’s president Ruthy Herowa encouraged mothers and young women to never lose hope when faced with problems.

Herowa is part of the PNG Wesleyan Church Women Ministry (PNG WCWM) that is staging its 7th National Women’s Conference this week in Port Moresby with over 500 women in attendance.

Herowa said: “My encouragement to women in PNG is that whatever situation we go through in our marriage lives, be joyful always.

“You may ask, how can we feel joy when we go through a divorce, abuse, neglected or violence in life?

“Well life is not a joy ride and we have to overcome so many challenges and hardships before we can find peace.

“We must have faith in God that he is still in control and one day he will give us peace,” Herowa stressed.
