Women Making a Difference

14 Oct

Last night I had a women’s cafecito here at the house. There were seven of us around the table ranging from young moms in their 30’s to a grandmother. It had been a few months since the last time we had met.

To get us caught up I asked for each one to share what had impacted, challenged or excited them in their lives recently.
It was amazing to hear how with passion and spontaneity each and every one shared that what was most exciting in their lives had to do with an opportunity that God has given them to serve in the community. Here is a sample of how God is using women from our home church and Reflejo to make a difference to those who need it most:
  • Thermalton–a project between a Pre-school, an Elementary school and a Family Therapy clinic to collect long underwear as gifts for the 54 children and youth of a local orphanage
  • Casa de Paz–the name of the orphanage mentioned above. Another woman, a psychologist, is working together with other colleagues and professionals to direct a program for the 11 special needs youth that live there
  • Casa para los Bello–gathering resources to build a house for a retired pastor who is blind and his wife.
  • A home Bible study
  • A Day Care Center for working moms
  • A feeding program for the homeless

And what did I share?…How I was witnessing a dream come true before my eyes–leaders who are following Jesus and are sharing the heart of their Saviour; to bring hope, help and healing to hurting people.
