What compelled you to serve with Women in the Window?
Women in the Window is an innovative, progressive ministry that exemplifies the Spirit of the Living God. Helping women around the globe find their worth and meaning in Christ and helping in some practical way to better their lives, and the lives of their families, is a worthwhile venture.
What has been the most enjoyable aspect of your volunteer experience so far?
Working with the team members. Working with women primarily whom I have never met, yet have likeminded desires to serve the Lord in an international setting. It is amazing how quickly a team can bond when introduced to a foreign land and culture.
What’s one of the most interesting things you’ve learned about WiW’s ministry?
The small size of the staff compared to the size of its global impact. (Women in the Window has only one full-time staff member, 3 part-time, and a strong, growing team of volunteers)
Where have you traveled with WiW? How did you see God use the training to transform the women and yourself personally?
I have traveled to China in 2013, and to India and Nepal in 2015. On both trips there were women at the trainings that had come the year before. To see the impact in their lives and their desire to bring change to their communities is humbling. Also it is incredible to see how the Lord helps them to take the information given and incorporate it into their culture and how the Holy Spirit equips them to make the information relevant to their communities. To see the Lord work cross culturally is absolutely amazing!
What is a passage of Scripture that has special significance for you?
“The mind of man plans his way, But the Lord directs his steps.” Proverbs 16:9. When we prepare to go on a WiW trip, we make our plans, study the material, prepare the lessons, then when we get on the field and the Lord takes over and thankfully directs our steps. Our theme for the China trip was “blessed are the flexible, for they shall not break.” The Lord knows the needs of the women far better than we could ever comprehend, allowing Him to direct our steps as we serve Him is one of the greatest rewards.
