God asks each of us to reach out and share his love.
CBWOQ began when the hearts of Ontario and Quebec women were set on fire to do whatever they could to bring health, education, justice, and the Gospel (word+ deed) to the poor and downtrodden women and girls of India.
And when we look at what God is calling us to do today, we look, as we did over 139 years ago, at the spiritual, social, and material needs of women in our day–trafficked women globally, First Nations women nationally, or spiritually adrift women locally–and pray that God would set us on fire to respond, just as He ignited a movement among our foremothers in response to the needs of women in their day.
Women called to authentic experience of God and intimate connection to mission.
Theme Verses for 2017 and 2018
On the last and greatest day of the festival, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. Whosoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.” John 7:37-38 (NIV)
CBWOQ has supported women in Rwanda through literacy and women’s empowerment but most significantly they have built relationships with our African sisters.
It was a pleasure working with CBWOQ on the Buying Sex is Not a Sport campaign around the Pan Am Games in 2015. The campaign engaged the public in standing up to addressing the demand for paid sex.
In our part of South Africa there are currently no social services for pregnant teens, so this home will meet a very real need. Many girls, as well as their children, will get to know the love of Christ and have the hope of a better future because of you.
CBWOQ is all about community, giving a new believer or a seasoned faithful a place to come together to share, learn and experience our Lord and Saviour’s overflowing love.
We are so grateful for your seed funding of rEcess and cannot wait to see God’s next steps for us.
