“This is the 7th edition of the Arise Women’s Conference, Seven in the biblical study of numbers signifies perfection. With our country witnessing a change in government at different levels, the economy a bit shaky, our children dealing with challenges of sexuality and pornography, is this not a ‘perfect’ time to Arise?” She added.
