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

January 2015

Go and Tell

As we reflect on 2014, we realise that it has been a year full of joys and challenges. Hopefully we have also experienced that, throughout everything, we were loved by God and felt the assurance of his daily presence and care.

Our theme for Women’s Ministries, throughout 2015, is ‘Go and Tell’ which were the words of Jesus to Mary after his resurrection. During the year we will try to share what we have received from God. Knowing God and his love means that we are assured of his presence with us, in the good and especially in the difficult days. He also promised eternal life. It would be wrong to keep this good news for ourselves!

The apostle Paul asks us: ‘How can the message be proclaimed if the messengers are not sent out?’ As the scripture says, “How wonderful is the coming of messengers who bring good news!” (Romans 10:15 Good News Bible)

What are we called to go and tell? Our mission statement says: it is the transforming message of Jesus, bringing freedom, hope and life.



To whom is it addressed? ‘To the hurting, broken, lonely, dispossessed and lost, reaching them in love by all means.’

This is a message worth proclaiming. It is our duty to do it, not only by words but also by demonstrating in our life that this is true.

Jesus instructs us to go and to proclaim the message. I pray that we will have the courage to do so in 2015!

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).
