Pleading the Case
It’s hard to believe spring is winding down and we have almost reached the beginning of our summer work/mission’s schedule. The first group we work with is on May 30th and our last group ends on August 4th. Needless to say it will be a long, hot summer, but one that holds great promise for all that we will be able to do for widows and “causing their hearts to sing with joy” (Job 29:13).
June 1st will mark the end of our 30th year as a ministry and the beginning of our 31st year. It is still so hard for me to believe that this many years has passed and the care of widows as well as the recognition for their ministry calling is still mostly non-existent throughout the world.
In I Timothy 5:9-10 it says “No widow may be put on the list of widows unless she is over sixty, has been faithful to her husband, and is well known for her good deeds, such as bringing up children, showing hospitality, washing the feet of the Lord’s people, helping those in trouble and devoting herself to all kinds of good deeds.”
