Daniel's spirit of excellence revealed to UCKG's Godllywood self-help group

Thousands of women who gathered in Johannesburg for the monthly Godllywood self-help meeting, as well as those linked in the provinces and neighbouring countries, learned another valuable lesson on how to achieve a spirit of excellence in all that they do. The initiative, organised by the Universal Church of the Kingdom of God's (UCKG), Godllywood group, seeks to actively change the course of the lives of the women who participate, by revealing aspects of their lives which may be hampering their development and offering skills to help transform themselves and their lives. Each month, women leave different and stronger, better equipped to face the adversities in life with renewed faith and optimism.
