“Jesus answered her, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again. But whoever drinks the water that I give him will never be thirsty again. But the water that I give him will become in him a spring of water [satisfying his thirst for God] welling up [continually flowing, bubbling within him] to eternal life.”
-John 4: 13-14
The Women At The Well was founded in November 2015 in response to an ache our founder Frances Okoro felt in her heart - a burden to get ladies to see that they can be satisfied in Jesus.
A hangoutof 9 ladies and “The Women At The Well” was born.
WHO WE ARE
We love Jesus!
“The Women At The Well” is simply a group of ladies who love Jesus… much like the Samaritan woman in John 4.
We are ladies who recognize the fact that nothing and no one else can fill us up like Jesus can and so our aim is simply to be filled in, with and of Jesus.
“Jesus said, “Everyone who drinks this water will get thirsty again and again. Anyone who drinks the water I give will never thirst—not ever. The water I give will be an artesian spring within, gushing fountains of endless life.”
-John 4:13-14 MSG
We realize that no man can make us complete… only Jesus can.
Some of us have gone around and around… much like the Samaritan woman with five husbands and now we simply want to respond to Jesus.
“He said, “Go call your husband and then come back.”
-John 4:16 MSG
We recognize that Jesus wants us to go call our husbands… to give him the old life… to throw it all out and come collect this water from Him.
He’s saying “go call out the old for me and let’s exchange it for my new life… new infilling of you with myself”.
Jesus wants to fill us up, so much so that the spring He starts up in us becomes a free flowing stream, filling up other lives around us with Him in us.
We are the women at the well.
We’ve come to the ultimate well, not the physical well.
We have come to be filled, to be refreshed, to grow, to flourish, to thrive…
We have come to satisfy our needs… our need for Jesus.
Jesus knows that when we are filled with Him, only then is He satisfied that His work in us is done.
When He has filled our empty crevices, the longing of our soul, the emptiness of our hearts…
When He has enthroned Himself in our hearts, then and only then can He be satisfied that He has done the will of His Father concerning us.
And when we finally see this truth, we become free to function in this truth…
“The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows).”
-John 10:10 AMP
The aim of the “Women of The Well” is and will always be simply to have ladies filled in and with Jesus.
Living a life of joy and satisfaction in Him.
Not being sucked into the world’s cry for the completion of a man… but recognizing that we are first wives of Jesus’ before we become the wife of a man… and Jesus would forever be the only one who can fill us up.
WHAT WE SEE
God is raising women filled in and with Himself with this group.
Women with wisdom spilling through their lips.
Women who are pillars in their workplaces, families, friendships…
Taking over workplaces for Jesus.
Enthroning God wherever we find ourselves.
Women who have true understanding of our roles in Christ… our roles as wives, mothers…
Women who live and walk in God’s purposes for their lives… filled with the Word and living in the Word.
There will be a time where this grows into a group where we do not just have single ladies, we throw bridal showers and have the married among us mentoring the young ones.
We foresee ladies wrapped in and with God’s love… taking delight in the TRUTH that only comes from God.
We foresee ladies who understand and live forth God’s word on submission… ladies who are taught by THE TEACHER.
We see ladies who are Deborah’s but wise enough to still be wives of Lapidoths.
We see ladies who their husbands look at and call blessed.
We see all these ladies springing out of this group…
It’s begun already.
HOW WE ACHIEVE OUR VISION
We hold meets every quarter of the year with our base in Lagos, Nigeria but with different meetings also being held in Nigeria and all over the world.
Our annual conference on “Love, relationship and marriage” takes place in the month of June
every year. This conference is our only event that is open to both men and women, single and married.
We also dedicate a meet every year to learning from “Naomis”.
We “Bridge the gap between Naomis and Ruths” (the old and new generation of Christian women)and glean wisdom from our older women.
We have an online group where we discuss issues arising from God’s word, provide encouragement to each other and shield ourselves with prayers.
Bible studies take place on the group every Friday by 8pm and prayers hold every Saturday by 6am.
Praying in the Spirit (tongues) is done every Sunday night by 12am. With different sisters being called on to lead studies, learn and grow in God as they partake with other sisters in living the God kind of life EVERYDAY.
The group is a place for every woman who desires to grow spiritually with kindred sisters cheering her on.
New members are accepted into the group after every live meeting and you are welcome to join us if this is something you are interested in being a part of. Simply send a mail to email@example.com and things will move along from there.
