Play dominated Day 2 of the 2nd Arise Women’s Conference on Thursday, Jan. 7, 2016, as the widows and mission trip participants split into teams to play a business game led by two guest speakers, then took a break on the playground to enjoy the swings, a slide and some basketball.

Success stories slow by slow

Day 1 of the 2nd Arise Women’s Conference began in the evening Jan. 6, 2016, as the h.o.w? Ministry widows arrived at the tented Camp Chemi Chemi in the Ngong Hills overlooking Nairobi after a 2-hour bus ride from their homes in the Kinangop high plateau countryside. It began with hugs, songs and tea, and continued with each widow sharing a story about what she has learned and accomplished since last we met.
