“But let all who take refuge and put their trust in You rejoice, Let them ever sing for joy; Because You cover and shelter them, Let those who love Your name be joyful and exult in You. ”
Psalm 5:11 Amplified Bible
this promise resonates in my heart of hearts. I well understand the need for refuge and Someone whom I can trust. But what penetrates my soul is the loving invitation to rejoice in God’s shelter.
As you well know, Women in the Window International equips women leaders in the 10/40 geographical region where women often eat last and least, have limited education, and are the victims of shame even when they deserve honor and love. But remarkably, they continually teach us how to rejoice and exult in Christ. Even now, as the global pandemic surges in many nations where WiW serves, they are rejoicing. They embody the principles of replacing their ashes for His beauty, and their mourning for His joy!
Our partnerships in the region are mutually beneficial on so many levels. And it is your prayers and support that not only sustain these partnerships, but enable them to flourish, grow and bring JOY.
Please join us in prayer for our ministry partners’ needs:
