Seminar – Open Door

On Mondays we like to draw your attention to certain aspects of the Scottish Women’s Bible Convention. For the next few weeks, we’ll be telling you a bit more about the range of Seminars that are on offer.

Jean Gibson and Maud Kells, from Northern Ireland, will be leading a seminar together. Let’s hear from them what it will be about.

What are you speaking about at the Scottish Women’s Convention and why?

Jean – Having just published ‘An Open Door’, the biography of Maud Kells who worked with WEC in DRCongo over a period of fifty years, I will be speaking about my call as a writer and giving some background to the book before Maud shares some of her experiences in DRC.
It is our prayer that hearing what God can do through a life dedicated to him will encourage us all to a greater openness to God’s work in our lives and a greater determination to follow his call whatever the cost.

Maud – I shall be sharing my life-story and sharing the reasons for writing it down in book form, with the help of Jean.

Besides speaking, what one thing about the Scottish Women’s Bible Convention are you looking forward to and why?

Jean – I’m looking forward to meeting other Christian women, making new friends and being inspired as we share together. I’m looking forward to hearing from God as well as speaking for him.

Maud – I am looking forward to listening to others ministering God’s word; also to visiting Charlotte Chapel, where I received wonderful and powerful teaching from Pastor Alan Redpath as a young Christian, while doing my midwifery training in Simpson Memorial Maternity Pavilion in Edinburgh, away back in 1964!
