The Women’s Ministry of the Christ Apostolic Church International (CACI) has ended its annual convention with a call on Christian women to rededicate themselves for God’s work.
Apostle Dr Stephen Kwame Ntow Amoani, Chairman of CACI who made the call said, ‘Every daughter of Zion should separate herself from the lot and make the world see the difference between the Christian woman and the others’.
He added that ‘It is when you do this that God will start using you for His Kingdom work not only in the church but also in all fronts to bring more souls unto Himself.
Apostle Amoani was addressing the closing ceremony of the four-day Women’s Convention which was on the theme: ‘Your Daughters Shall Prophesy’. It was attended by hundreds of women from all over the country as part of the activities marking the Centenary Celebration of the CACI.

Quoting from the Holy Bible in Micah 4: 13, which says, ‘Arise and thresh, O daughter of Zion……., the Chairman said, Christian Women should separate themselves from the world by shunning bad company to become useful in the house of God’.
‘Daughters of Zion, awake, put on thy strength, put on thy beautiful garment for henceforth there shall be no more uncleanliness among you; Apostle Amoani challenged the women who were clad in their beautiful and colourful Centenary clothing.
