When we were in Ecuador, I would have given my “eye teeth” for a time of refreshment and ministry to my soul with other women who understood my life! Thrive (a ministry to women who serve cross-culturally) has asked me to speak, out of my 40 years of missionary experience, to missionary women who will come from serving all over the continent of Africa at a special retreat. This is a volunteer opportunity and I need to raise the funds for the trip above our regular monthly support.
Kitchen Table Counseling was a program Muriel created in 1970 for woman-to-woman biblical lay counseling. She developed it at the request of a church that had seen a pastor fall into an affair while counseling women. The initial idea was to have women take on the role of counselors for women in the church. Over time the concept became a seminar to train women in other churches to do the same.
When you give to the Ministry Care Fund, you show missionaries and ministry leaders that you support their calling and care about their lives. Your generosity matters in their everyday work and when the unexpected happens.
Missions and Ministry work is often demanding, traumatic, dangerous, and filled with unexpected financial burdens. You can help ministry leaders and missionaries by being there for them when they need help the most.
