International Widow's Day
In the midst of their debilitating loss, widows in the 10/40 window often encounter discrimination, violence and poverty. The children of widows are often more vulnerable to abuse, as well. Along with our ministry partner, Nayanam International, we come alongside widows to replace poverty & injustice with dignity & purpose in Christ. One way we do this is through micro-business trainings, like the one going on in June. This month, in honor of the UN’s International Widow’s Day on 6/23, we will share about the dire situations of widows and how you can help.
Let’s start with prayer for this microbusiness training for widows led by our ministry partner, Nayanam International, in the Horn of Africa. You can pray for:
- Widows to arrive safely each day: ready to learn, connect & grow
- The Inductive Bible study to cover & encourage them with God’s love & truth
- The women to connect deeply as a supportive community with other widows
- Widows to apply this knowledge to empower financial sustainability & alleviate their poverty
So many of us were moved to tears through the incredible program at our Spring Event, Creativity in the Courtyard, that told the stories of the women we serve in Africa, Asia & the Middle East. Listen & watch the Palm Beach Atlantic Dance Ensemble as they beautifully portray the tragically redemptive story of Rabeka. If you’re moved by what you see and want to give so that TOGETHER we can continue to help more women like Rabeka, you can still donate.

DISCOVER THE ESSENTIALS FOR A MEANINGFUL LIFE AND AN ETERNAL LEGACY
Essentials Bible study is based on the narratives, or stories, about women in the Bible. And there is no shortage—there are more than 100 stories of women included in God’s Word.
Essentials is also an inductive Bible study. What exactly does that mean? It means that we will examine precisely what the Word of God says in its original context through the “windows” of Preparation, Observation, Interpretation, Application, and Reflection. And as we learn how to study these stories inductively, we find the answers we are looking for and the purpose we are longing for.
