While love may be a “many splendored thing” from the poet’s perspective, it is the greatest of all things from God’s perspective! He clearly states the priority of love throughout His word, including these poignant passages of Scripture:
“I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness . . .” Jeremiah 31:3
“By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” John 13:35
“Love and faithfulness meet together; righteousness and peace kiss each other.” Psalm 85:10
Women in the Window International is overflowing with praise to our faithful and loving God! We invite you to rejoice with us, in the specific ways He has blessed us this past month including:
- Accreditation by the ECFA – We have met the 7 Standards of Responsible Stewardship: http://www.ecfa.org/Content/Standards

Please pray with us for the remainder to be met as we seek to fulfill requests to train more than 1,000 women leaders this year.
- Last by not least, our amazing faithful WiW volunteers!!
Please join us in prayer for these upcoming WiW trainings and specific needs directly from the field:
