Let us be seeds that grow on rocky soil.

That’s the theme of the Zion Christian Church Ministries Conference this week.

Held at Vaitele Zion Christian Church, President Ps. Matofai Mareko told the Samoa Observer the conference is all about seeking God at the beginning of the year.

Based in New Zealand, the church was first established in 1985. Since then, it has grown from strength to strength with branches in Samoa, New Zealand, Australia and San Diego.

Ps. Mareko said God’s hand has been amazing.

“The main reason of this conference is to discuss some of the issues we want to address as a church and to build God’s kingdom on this earth while we still have the time.

“We believe that standing together in prayers and fasting while we are having this conference makes us stronger in God.”

The conference ends on Sunday.

“We have programmes for youths,  worship teams, children,  pastors and other services from Monday to Saturday.

“The door is open to anyone who wants to come and join the conference and we also have speakers during this whole week. We’re praying that after this conference we’ll reap many souls for the Kingdom of God.”
