Are You Qualified to Teach?

“And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others.” 2 Timothy 2:2 NIV.

Thanks to WiW’s flourishing ministry among widows, including Nyanam International, Where Widows Rise, Rebecca has qualifications that she considers some of her greatest treasures.

Rebecca is probably one of the most reliable women you would ever hope to meet. As a widow in Sub-Saharan Africa, her workday begins before dawn and lasts until long after the physical sun has set. Widows are often treated with contempt and have no one to help them. Yet, her work ethic embodies Proverbs 31:19a, “She rises while it is yet night and provides food for her household.”

So far this year she completed narrative inductive Bible study, Micro-enterprise, Trauma healing, and, what’s even more exciting to us, she recently led a portion of the Kitchen Garden training that extended to women leaders on 5 continents from 12 different ministries. Yes, Rebecca is truly qualified to teach others, who will teach others, who will in turn teach others. . .

As we celebrate International Widow’s Day, Rebecca is just one example of how Women in the Window equips and empowers women to replace poverty and injustice with dignity and purpose in Christ. And specifically, how we equip and empower hundreds of widows!

I hope you are energized as you hear just how your gifts, prayers, and volunteering enables widows throughout the 10/40 window with Life-giving skills as the essence of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Please consider how your faithful giving and fervent prayers keep this momentum moving forward as more reliable women leaders are qualified to teach others, who will in turn teach others.

Joyfully Serving Christ with you,
