Women in the Window International is delighted to introduce our featured volunteer, Michelle McCormick. Michelle serves as a co-leader for our Advocacy strategy. Michelle is passionate about women’s ministry and finding culturally appropriate, biblical responses to acts of injustice against women in the 10/40 Window. With a constant smile on her face, it is apparent that the joy of the Lord is her strength (Nehemiah 8:10)! And we also celebrate her recent promotion at work to Assistant to the Headmaster of Atlantic Christian Academy!
We hope you will enjoy learning more about Michelle in the brief interview below. If God is leading you to serve or travel with WiW, please learn more about our volunteer opportunities and contact us!
Michelle, what compelled you to serve with Women in the Window?
It was the Holy Spirit nudging me after I learned about the suffering of women and children through the ministry. God has put a love in my heart for those who can’t defend themselves ever since I was a young child. Women in the Window International surrounds my passion.
What has been the most enjoyable aspect of your volunteer experience so far?
Traveling and meeting the different women. Listening to their hearts and uniting in a love that bonds us in Christ (here and across the miles). Making new friends and sisters in Christ.
What’s one of the most interesting things you’ve learned about WiW’s ministry?
We have all been through difficult times, but God has made us spiritually stronger through those experiences.
Where have you traveled with the ministry and how did those trips influence you?
I will be traveling to India this January for the third time. My trips there have influenced me to be ready to hear God and obey. It makes me look at others differently, with more compassion and less judgment. It makes me humble and thankful.
What is a passage of Scripture that has special significance for you?
Philippians 2:13, which says, “It is God who works in me to will and to act according to His good purpose.” When I was trying to do good things in my strength, God gave me this verse and made me realize it’s not me but Him that works in me to accomplish His good deeds. Praise God!
