A dedicated team of people in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, along with a growing community of generous and active supporters throughout the United States, are helping h.o.w? Ministry empower women, save children and fight poverty.
These are our stories.
h.o.w? team helps paint some new library shelves, delivers 100 pounds of school supplies, conducts some fun activities with preschoolers, and can’t wait to return!
Our special needs team rocked it this week. It was a hard placement. But God provided peace and safety and courage.
Coming “home” to Kinangop, the high country plateau where our h.o.w? Ministry widows live, is always a happy affair as team members who have been before are reunited with the women and children who have won their hearts, and new team members are quickly surrounded and embraced.
Nine people from h.o.w? Ministry have arrived in Kenya for a two-week mission trip, including three mother-daughter teams, two others who are mothers, and another who is a daughter working together to help empower women, save children, and raise families out of poverty.
More than 100 supporters gathered on beautiful sunny Saturday morning May 7, 2016, for the annual h.o.w? Ministry 5K Run/Walk for “The Least of These”
Plan now to participate in our annual 5K run/walk for “the least of these” to help fund our missions. Our 2016 event is scheduled for Saturday, May 7, at LaCroix Church.
We’re expanding thanks to the generosity of donors and numbers that line up perfectly with God’s plan. God often steps in when you take a leap of faith.
CuCu, the oldest of the h.o.w? widows and one the funniest, too, is hospitalized, and we are glad to hear she is improving.
Play dominated Day 2 of the 2nd Arise Women’s Conference on Thursday, Jan. 7, 2016, as the widows and mission trip participants split into teams to play a business game led by two guest speakers, then took a break on the playground to enjoy the swings, a slide and some basketball.
Day 1 of the 2nd Arise Women’s Conference began in the evening Jan. 6, 2016, as the h.o.w? Ministry widows arrived at the tented Camp Chemi Chemi in the Ngong Hills overlooking Nairobi after a 2-hour bus ride from their homes in the Kinangop high plateau countryside. It began with hugs, songs and tea, and continued with each widow sharing a story about what she has learned and accomplished since last we met.
