The Light We Carry

Beautiful International Women’s Conference, India

Over 130 women came together for a special one day women’s conference in Central India hosted by IMI’s Beautiful International Women’s Ministry. It was a wonderful time as we gathered in fellowship, for tea, a meal, and sessions in the Word. Women in India face the same issues as women all over the world – relationships, health, education, and jobs, to name a few. A vital aspect of these women’s meetings is the encouragement and fellowship they share together and time around the Word. This annual conference is the only time these women in this community are able to get together in this way.

Encouraging and sharing deep truths of the Word with these women who are the heart of the homes, churches and communities here in India is a critical ministry and one that bears much fruit all year long. Each woman has a story, and God is at work in their lives.

One of the special way women learn, laugh and create together at the Beautiful International Women’s Conferences is through creating special crafts together. Thank you for praying for our national team and Kathy Miller and Dee Cook as they ministered to the women pictured below.

We now have this light shining in our hearts, but we ourselves are like fragile clay jars containing this great treasure. II Corinthians 4:7

After two teaching sessions, we hosted a delicious lunch of chicken curry, rice, salad and chapati, there were two more sessions, then the craft.

The craft was macrame keychains with beads. The women had a great time making their own beautiful keychains! Fingers and toes were involved!

Come, let us sing for joy to the LORD; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation. Psalm 95:1
