Bishop Joe preached the word of God with power, ministered and prophesied upon the church in  Eastern Province.

The Bishop opened the conference with a powerful sermon entitled “no more barrenness”, giving an account Rebbecca and other women in the Bible who had situations of bareness that God turned into fruitfulness, women like Elizabeth and Hannah. In all these cases their barrenness had a purpose, it was God’s plan.

-Prayer changed their situations
-They were all carrying destiny
-Their children were all great men (Jacob and Esau, Samuel and John the Baptist respectively)

Bishop also taught on the importance of faithfulness as a key to fruitfulness and changing of ones mindset towards an attitude of success, ”If you can change your thinking ,success will be your portion and the blessings of God will be yours, you will not be stagnant. Your thought will reflect your mind.

Things one should do:
-Find a plan
-Think Big
-Think in generation (have a long foresight)

The conference was a time of deliverance from things that held people captive,things that hindered fruitfulness. Bishop Imakando encouraged the people to look to God for deliverance and return to God as He would restore them and all that they had lost.
