We are delighted to inform you that our ministry initiative with widows in East Africa is fully underway! Two of our women leaders from Africa Inland Church traveled from South Sudan to Kenya to provide much needed micro-enterprise training for a group of 30 widows. This is quite exciting on many fronts as Women in the Window International has a great opportunity to reverse the curse of their situation. You see, widows in the developing world; nations of Africa & Asia specifically, are treated with shame rather than honor. Their physical, emotional and relational needs are ignored. Simply because they are widows, they are deprived basic necessities of life instead of receiving care and support as they should. This is both sad and shocking.
With this training, our women leaders from Sudan and South Sudan, Mama Paula and Mama Margaret, are providing business skills training to enable them to not only start but sustain a thriving business!
Make sure you visit our WiW Facebook page and stay tuned for an opportunity to help us provide a follow-up training in early 2020 as these 30 widows widen their impact to 100 widows and more!!
Please join us in prayer and praise—
Praise God for our new ministry initiative with widows in East Africa established by an energetic young Kenyan woman, Jackie, and her team of five! Praise for the safety of Mama’s Paula & Margaret! Praise God for the 30+ widows who are enjoying the training and already planning their future businesses.
Pray for an anointing on each lesson taught asking the Holy Spirit to illuminate the WiW curriculum to enable the widows to understand in their own heart language what is being taught and assimilate the biblical truths and practical lessons into their current and future situations.
Pray for God to unite our hearts with the widows so that we can empower and equip still more in 2020!
Philippians 4:18-19, “I have received full payment and even more; I am amply supplied, now that I have received from Epaphroditus the gifts you sent. They are a fragrant offering, an acceptable sacrifice, pleasing to God. And my God will meet all your needs according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus.”
