From Our President

Oh give thanks unto the Lord...

Thanks to all of you who actively participated in the IWOC Conference in Orlando, Florida in August. And thanks to all of you who could not attend, but sent your prayers. God bless you, and I love you. My thanks go out to Pastor Lois Washington, our Executive Vice President who hosted the Conference, and Dr. Deryl Johnson, our Florida District Director. A heartfelt thanks also goes out to Pastor Washington's beautiful daughter, Marsha, who put together the fashion show that took place on the ship on Saturday. We thank her and all the wonderful models.

A great God Bless to Sister Bettie and Sister Mary who flew in from Maryland and put on a magnificent financial seminar to empower us in this crucial time of our economy. Thanks be to God for Rev. Doretha Martin, our Ohio State President who has not missed a Conference since assuming the leadership position. We anticipate that the Conference will be held in Ohio in the coming years.

Thank God for all the Leaders of the IWOC and the entire group of Oklahoma IWOC women who drove thirteen hundred miles on a rented bus to get to Florida. Hats off to Missionary Veronica Pickens, our Oklahoma State President who worked so hard heading up fundraisers to make the trip a reality for all the women who wanted to attend. Pastor Jeraldine Crawford demonstrated what a servant is all about, that even Pastors are just servants, asking God, "What would you have me to do," as she also worked in all the fundraisers to enable the women of her congregation in their efforts to attend. Thanks to all the preachers who ministered to our very souls, the workshop leaders, our new Florida State President and all of our guests, including the singers, musicians and praise dancers who accompanied our speakers. This truly was a revolutionary time fro each of us.

As all of you know, our theme for 2008 was "The Revolution," and God sent the most powerful Women of God that I have encountered in my years of preaching His gospel. What a blessing! Thank you Pastor Faye Allen of Wings of Love Worship Center, Winter Haven, Florida and Rev. Dr. Loretta Harris-Williams, Pastor of Dimensions International Ministries in Orlando, Florida. God Bless you. We would love to see you in upcoming conferences.

And lastly, but certainly not least is Dr. Aundrey Wilkins, our Executive Vice President of Operations and our Colorado State President who God must have put angel wings on as she went over and above to assist me personally and to run interference with all the financial and other operations that required special attention. God Bless you Dr. Wilkins.

And again, thanks to each and every one of you. Now it's time to get busy again. Our 2009 Conference will be held in Oklahoma. We will begin to contact speakers, singers and plan the agenda. We welcome your comments and ideas.

God's Blessings to you,

Bishop Doris Nelson, International President

A NOTE OF SYMPATHY goes out to one of our Women of Confidence, First Lady Audrey Elbert. First Lady Elbert of Oklahoma was with us at the Conference when she learned her husband had cancer. Pastor Elbert has since gone to be with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Woman of Confidence, our love and prayers are with you.
