Dear Friends and Partners,

In spite of the three days of rain and mud we encountered during the 4th Daughters of Destiny Conference in Iquitos, Peru, many women showed up and were blessed. This year’s conference was called Preparing the Bride for the Wedding Feast of the Lamb.

The team of 17 speakers taught powerful themes like: The Call of the Bridegroom, Reflecting the Beauty of the Lord, the Adornment of the Bride, Release Beauty through Purity and Holiness, The Arms of the Beloved, Passion for Souls, The Trumpets that Announce His Arrival, How to Hear the Voice of God, Marriage Like Christ and the Church, The Beloved in the Song of Songs, Intimacy with the Beloved, Presenting the Bride Adorned for the Wedding Feast and more. In each teaching and ministry time there was a challenge to fall deeper in love with Christ, to hear His heart beat and obey His voice.

The Spirit of the Lord is wooing the Bride of Christ and preparing her for the second coming. The wedding apparel for the bride is righteous works which is the fine linen of Revelations 19:8. The church of Jesus Christ has been distracted by many trials and tribulations of the world around us and the Holy Spirit is using those things to move us deeper into His presence where we trust only in Him. That place of intimacy where we denounce self-sufficiency and depend totally on Him for health, strength, finances, wisdom and life itself. It is the place where the true works of God are birthed.

In 2012, we, the church and bride of Christ, will walk in greater authority on earth establishing His kingdom in the nations through intimacy with the Beloved. Those who do not de-robe themselves of selfish carnal activities and mindsets will find themselves unprepared to face the challenges of these end times in which we live. This is the message of Daughters of Destiny to the nations this year.

River Leaders

We had over 100 arrive from river communities, leaders and their wives from different zones. Ron, Pastor Warring and two other pastors from Iquitos taught the regional leaders seminar in the mornings and afternoons at another location, and in the evenings they joined the women for evening services.

Testimonies – a few of the many…

Jennifer is the new wife of Julio Valles, our praise and worship leader at Ciudad de Dios and our spiritual son. She has been fighting with intestinal disorder and pain since a surgery she underwent over a year ago making it difficult to eat properly. Three times during the conference the Lord spoke to her through different ministers that she was healed. Sunday after the conference she testified before the congregation of the manifestation of that healing. Thank you Jesus!

Niki, a young mother from Santa Clotilde, shared that she was discouraged over problems in the home. Now she is strengthened, filled and encouraged to continue in children’s ministry in her city.

Olivia, an older woman from the Napo River, testified that she was not going to come because she didn’t feel like it was her place. During the conference she received many words of encouragement and returned home happy and full of the Spirit to share with others in her community.


On March 22nd, a team of women will fly to Buenos Aires, Argentina for our second visit to that nation. We plan on duplicating our Iquitos conference as much as possible. On March 23th, 24th and 25th, we will be at Aguilas Vision Church with Pastors Osvaldo and Liliana Cicka. The conference will be televised on channel 11 Christian TV station and viewed in Buenos Aires and surrounding communities. We will visit other churches throughout the city from March 26th thru April 1st.

Please pray for this trip that the church in Argentina would be blessed and continue to grow in maturity, obeying the voice of the Spirit in reaching the lost and preparing them for the return of Christ. One of the main focuses we have as a ministry is to empower women to rescue children and families that are trapped in darkness. One of the ways that we do this is by teaching family values and PARE (STOP sexual abuse among children), however, we lack finances for airfare and expenses to take our speaker for this course to Argentina.

If you would like to sow into Argentina through Daughters of Destiny, please make checks payable to Spirit, Soul and Body Ministries with DOD on the memo line for tax deductible receipt or to AFCM International (addresses below).

Chiclayo, Peru

We are planning our first conference in the northern coastal city of Chiclayo on April 3rd, 4th, and 5th. Pastor Enzo Andia has been asking us to come to his city for close to a year. It is the third largest city in Peru and we look forward to planting the Word of God in the hearts of many women in that city. Please pray for fertile ground in the spirit that much fruit will come forth for the Kingdom.

Honduras Home Base

As many of you already know, Ron and I have taken on New Life Children’s Home founded by my parents, Jim and Georgia Lamont, in Jalaca, Honduras. We are continuing the vision of rescuing children from diverse circumstances, giving them a home and family to love, and training them to be leaders in their nation. We will travel to and from the home to hold Daughters of Destiny conferences in other nations. If you would like to join us on any of these trips, please don’t hesitate to write.

God’s richest blessings as you establish the Kingdom on earth,

Annette Thiesen
