This November, the Holy Ghost Service has the theme: Victory Ahead. That, really, is an announcement of joy to the entire body of Christ which has been going through some tortuous experience globally. To individuals and family units, the theme offers hope for a new taste of life. It is a theme that would excite the oppressed and revive the battle-wearied, as well as those fainting under some heavy burdens. Victory Ahead is also a pointer to what the Lord, our God, is set to do between now and the 20th Holy Ghost Congress holding from Monday December 4 to Saturday December 11, 2017. The theme is Song of Victory.
