WOMEN'S MINISTRIES

From the desk of the World President of Women's Ministries – Commissioner Silvia Cox

October 2014

 

One of the privileges we have, as we travel to the different territories around the world, is to hear stories of transformation through the power of God using Salvation Army programmes to accomplish this.

Recently, in the USA Central territory, we heard the testimony of Lynne Williams, during the Detroit Dream Congress Festival of Praise. It was a very touching story, as Lynne told us about her drug and alcohol addiction when she was young, and how she realised that her life would be destroyed if she continued in this way. As a result she decided and managed to rebuild her life, becoming even very successful, without the help of God, for 17 years.

Although she had everything money could buy, including a good job, family and friends, inside herself, she was not satisfied. One day she went back to her old life, unfortunately this time it was worse than the first time. She thought she would die, all alone until she met God through the Adult rehabilitation programme.   She is a transformed person, and the longing in her life has been filled. As a Salvationist, she now shares her story about the power and the love of God to others.  Her own words are: “I have more joy, contentment and peace in my life than I ever imagined possible. “

You will be able to read her complete story in the Revive Magazine.

Really we are loved by God!

BIBLE STUDY

You are Loved - Forgive

Bible reading – John 8:1-11
Then Jesus stood up again and said to the woman, ‘Where are your accusers? Didn’t even one of them condemn you?’ ‘No lord,’ she said. And Jesus said, ‘Neither do I. Go and sin no more’.  (v v 10, 11 New Living Translation).

About Women's Ministries

The ideal basic unit of society is the home and family, where women play a vital and definitive role. Furthermore, as natural providers of hope, women play an important part in shaping society. Therefore any fellowship of women in which Christian influence is exerted and practical help given benefits not only the individual and the family, but also the nation.

Women’s Ministries provide a programme of meetings and other activities based on the fourfold aims of the Army’s international women’s organisation, the Home League, which was inaugurated in 1907. The aims are worship, education, fellowship and service.

The mission of Women’s Ministries is to:

  • bring women into a knowledge of Jesus Christ
  • encourage their full potential in influencing family, friends and community
  • equip them for growth in personal understanding and life skills
  • address issues which affect women and their families in the world

Indeed, the motto of the Home League is: ‘I will live a pure life in my house ...’ (Psalm 101:2b, Good News Bible).
