Although government programs are helpful, God has entrusted the Church to care for the needy, especially widows and orphans. Jesus personally identified the hungry, thirsty, misplaced, naked, sick, and those in prison (Matthew 25:34-40). As we put faith to our feet, we not only meet physical needs, we also present His lifesaving hope and healing grace.
This workshop will highlight simple, practical ways your local church and more specifically your women’s ministries organization, can encourage and provide for poverty-stricken women, infants and children.
