Righteous Invasion of Truth (R.I.O.T) gladly brings ‘Men of Valor’, its first men’s conference in Dar es Salaam. M.O.V. is an interactive platform, reaching out to men across different ethnic groups, socio-economic and religious backgrounds to restore, transform, equip and edify the man holistically.
Men have a natural tendency of internalizing issues. When you ask a man what he is thinking when things are up to his neck, without a glance, he’ll instinctively say, “Nothing”. Men do cry, but their tears are only visible from the inside. That’s why God had to say, “It is not good for a man to be alone”. As much as studies show that women are twice as much susceptible to depression, surprisingly the male-to-female ratio for completed suicides is greater than 4:1
When in this state where the internalization of things has reached its limit, men tend to shift the blame for how they feel on the inside to outside things. We exhibit anger or irritability over everything. Men are more prone to using alcohol or drugs as an outlet. As if this isn’t enough, the male infant has a higher mortality rate than the female. Let alone the fact that the woman has a higher life expectancy rate.
To those that have overcome these obstacles, there is still no rest for them. The enemy has strategically planned to emasculate the ‘man’ figure from marriage, family and even the society at large. The ‘man’ as an authority figure is being undermined from his God-given position bestowed upon him from Genesis by God Himself.
How can men prevail this ongoing fierce battle? If only we could learn the greatest ‘Art of War’ –PRAISE! You might be the least in your father’s house or perhaps you are coming from the poorest family in your clan, but I clearly hear the Commander-in-Chief of the Army of The Lord saying this to you: “Jehovah is with you, Mighty Man of Valor”!
Ladies are warmly welcomed!
