India – Dee will be leading a team from US to hold women’s conferences in India and Iraq in the next few weeks. In India, more than 100 local women involved in church leadership will attend each event. These conferences provide an opportunity for Biblical training, encouragement, fellowship and creativity. Special craft kits, which the women really enjoy, have been assembled that will provide a meaningful memento of the event.
These kits are available so you can experience the joy of crafting and participate with the women in thought and prayer. As a thank you for donations of $25 or more to Beautiful International, you will receive a kit, just like the ones being made across the globe.
Iraq – Many of you, our Beautiful Partners, have continued to donate to The Miriam Fund which has been used for the successful rescue of dozens of women kidnapped by ISIS. Next month, Dee will be launching the next phase of our outreach to Yazidi women ravaged by the violence of ISIS, focusing on rehabilitation and English language education for these girls and women. Christian counselors and ESL teachers have been sourced, and as funds become available, we will add vocational training so these woman can rebuild their lives for themselves and their families.
Every month Beautiful focuses on a special theme. Last month we looked at how to utilize our time for God’s glory. This month we’re reminded of God’s True love, not the commercialized version that comes with Valentine’s Day. Follow Beautiful’s Facebook page to read these short, inspirational messages.
