Volunteer Spotlight

Women in the Window

Women in the Window International is delighted to introduce our featured volunteer, Michelle McCormick. Michelle serves with Women in the Window as Advocacy Servant Leader. She is a native of Grenada with roots in India! Her relationship with Jesus began at the age of ten and she will attest that life without Him would be pointless.  She has led several teams to India and coordinated trainings for care-givers working with human trafficking victims. God has been faithful to sustain her through many challenges and has used difficult events in her life as connecting points with women on the field. In all these things, Michelle gives God the praise and glory.

We hope you enjoy learning more about Michelle in the brief interview below. If God is leading you to serve with WiW, please learn more about our volunteer opportunities and contact us!

What compelled you to serve with Women in the Window?
I was compelled by the Holy Spirit to work with an organization that ministers to women and children. It’s a passion that God placed in my life at a young age.

What has been the most enjoyable aspect of your volunteer experience so far?
The most enjoyable aspect of serving with WIW has been my time spent with the women. I look forward to each trip with excitement and anticipation knowing that I will have the opportunity to make connections with them.

What is one of the most interesting things you’ve learned about WiW’s ministry?
One of the most important things I have learned and deeply treasure about Women in the Window is that everything is bathed in prayer first and foremost. It’s an essential part of the ministry and guides everything we do.

Where have you traveled with WiW?  How did you see God use the training to transform the women and yourself personally?
With Women in the Window, I have traveled primarily to India. I was amazed to see how God worked through us to connect and speak into the lives of our sisters. We heard stories of transformed lives from the lessons we taught and stories of the women sharing these lessons immediately in their circle of friends. As for the impact on my life, I can tell you God has used my experiences in India and with our sisters to grow me in depth and width spiritually. I feel so blessed to have traveled to India and so blessed to be a part of His work there. My faith has definitely grown abundantly.

What is a passage of Scripture that has special significance for you?
About a year before my first trip to India, God spoke to me several times through Philippians 2:13 and it became one of my favorite verses. In his kindness, He then reconfirmed that verse to me in India in what I would call an “amazing God way”. Maybe one day I can personally share this story with you.
