Women do not need a title to be in ministry, there is ministry all around us.
I just read this quote on the web and I decided to put it here as an inspirational quote.
Now this newsletter’s focus is on Women! Oh, well don’t get me wrong I am not a “feminist”, it just happens that this month’s highlights in the ministry are focused on women’s outreach programs.
So here are the latest happenings:
This an abbreviation of Women Of Worth, a new outreach ministry for women here in Phnom Penh City. This new program is spearheaded by a Cambodian Christian woman named Chanthy, who works at an NGO and is currently learning the Bible with us (Julia Liles is doing a regular Bible study with her). She is so passionate to reach out to women around her! Julia, Chanthy and I brainstormed ideas and wrote down plans for this new program. July 14th the first WOW meeting was launched. It was attended by 9 women including the 3 of us. It was wonderful to hear these women share their views and feelings about a topic that touched their inner being—their worth and value as women!
PRAY for the second meeting next month! Pray for more women to join this event.
ERIKS WOMEN’S FORUM
Chanthy invited Julia and I to be speakers for her NGO’S program on women. The topic presented was Women’s Divine Design. I had the privilege to prepare the slides for lectures while Julia Liles handled some activities. The forum lasted for 2 full days. The events were full of fun and emotional moments as 12 women gathered together to learn their value, dignity and potential. Three of these women were not Christians. The amazing thing was that during these two days these 3 women seemed to express interest in God and willingness to know Him.
Here is more: A few of the women conducted small meetings within their groups in their churches and home groups using the lessons they learned in our workshops. This is a wonderful blessing since our goal is to train these women to influence other women and pass these truths on to the next generation. God is making things happen for us! Praise Him. Pray for the upcoming forum next month for another 2 days event.
Proverbs 31:25 ( NLT) She is clothed with strength and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future.
In His love,
