It has been a busy time for us as we plan and participate in the events this time of year. What a great time to visit with supporters face to face and meet new people that they bring with them. On April 30th, we held our second Women Helping Women brunch. There were about 75 ladies who attended with more than half of them hearing about Christian World Outreach for the first time. Having existing supporters introduce new people to CWO ministries is always a blessing because it helps us reach people we do not know by giving them the opportunity to pray and give financially.
Laura was able to spend time with with many friends at the brunch. It was a good time for her to reconnect and share about what is going on with the CWO ministries. Greg was able to serve by getting things set up for the event, by helping where needed during the brunch and by cleaning up afterwards.
This event was a great time of sharing about the CWO ministries that meet the needs of women. Our guests watched videos about the Village of Opportunity (VOO) in Burkina Faso, the ministry to widows and expectant mothers in Sri Lanka and the ministry for young ladies in the Zimbabwe Our Kids Program. We were also blessed to hear from Thembi Myeni, the co-founder of Single Moms Raising Sons, and one of the single moms who has attended a Bible study here in the Denver area.
