Dear WOV Partners and Friends,
What a good summer we had with two great book discussions in June and July and then a wonderful "Share the Light" event in August. We are now in September and heading toward the end of this fiscal year! Because of people like you, we exceeded our 2022 goal of $300,000! Donations have continued to come in, and we have raised over $302,000 to support our projects in Kenya, Honduras, and the Syrian crisis impact area.
We always thank God for all of you, mentioning you in our prayers.
We continually remember before our God and Father
your work produced by faith,
your labor prompted by love,
and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.
I Thessalonians 1:2-3
As October 1 arrives, we will start our new fiscal year. Our leadership team has voted to increase our yearly goal to $330,000 for our three projects. Kenya Big Dream will continue to focus on preventing child marriage and FGM and keeping girls in school. Our focus in Honduras is shifting to support World Vision's Christian Discipleship program—we will support this program in Nicaragua, Guatemala, and El Salvador as well. And we will continue to support Syrian refugees under the broader umbrella of Global Emergency Response, so we can reach out to those in the world who are suffering from both short- and long-term challenging emergencies, as needed.
Gatherings are being planned for the 2023 year that you won't want to miss. Make sure this first one is on your calendar:
The Women of Vision Fall Kick-Off is set for Saturday, October 8th, from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m. Come to an energetic morning of information, sharing, and fellowship! Hear from our National Women of Vision Director, Cindy Mesko, and our new Focus Teams and see if there’s one you’d like to join this year. Don't miss out! (See more details below.)
Your CWWOV Co-Chairs,
Ruth Nottingham and Ann Zelenka
