World Day of Prayer November 5

The Baptist World Alliance Women are holding their annual Day of Prayer and all of their materials are available here .  This year they are promoting the 10-10-10 challenge.  They want to challenge 10 women to invite 10 more women to attend a Day of Prayer event, and to each give $10.00 to the mission projects of the BWA.  See the poster linked here:  BWNA 101010 FLYER (Western Canada)

Let’s get on board and support the global work of our Baptist sisters!

New Ministry Partner

We are excited to be partnering with Tim and Kallie Hutton with their “ADA” project in Bolivia at Casa de Amistad.  Women in the prison system have little opportunity to care for their families or even meet their own needs.  They have few skills and unless they are given opportunity, their future is bleak.  “Eagle’s Wings” is a project to teach the women how to sew marketable goods that can help them improve their situation.  Women in Focus was able to help them purchase 2 sewing machines and now we are wanting to supply them with materials and supplies.  Make this your 2018 – 2020 mission project and help support this fantastic outreach.  Click here to find out more from Tim and Kallie:

Day of Prayer offerings

Thank you to those who participated in the Baptist World Day of Prayer. We hope the day was a blessing to those who joined in prayer around our globe.  This is a reminder that your offerings received can be sent to the CBWC Office, clearly marked Day of Prayer.  If they can be amalgamated into one cheque that is very helpful.

I am from Portage La Prairie Manitoba and attend the First Baptist Church. I have accepted to serve as President for Women In Focus. I am excited to step into this new venture in Women’s Ministry. I’ve had an opportunity to meet the Wonderful Group of Women at CBWC, The Gathering in Calgary, I look forward to getting to know you all more throughout the next few years. I was so Blessed and taken back with The Gathering I just sat back and took in what I could absorb but my brain could not absorb it all, it was good!  (there is so much more behind the scenes we dont even see God Keeps some things surprises)

I’m Married and A Mother to 4 wonderful Children 2 boys and 2 girls ages 10-22. I’m a Nana to three wonderful boys, one year old twin boys. We enjoy being on a acreage and have a few animals. I love reading and Writing, Singing . I love encouraging and praying for other’s and sharing Jesus. Keeping Connections with other’s is important and partnering for change.  I look forward to serving with Women In Focus and to see what God has in store for WIF.

Thank you and God Bless,

In Memory of Martha Burwood

Martha served on the BCY Women in Focus team as their president and was serving on the Women in Focus executive when I was first hired as the director.  She was a positive, kind and encouraging person with a heart for God’s mission in women at home and globally.  We are saddened that one of our faithful servants has gone to be with the Lord and our hearts are with her family and friends who will dearly miss her.

Step Into A Miracle

The newest Bible study for Fall, 2016 is now available here and under our Bible studies tab, under Resources.  This is a longer study of 14 lessons and some of the lessons take more than one week if you get into a good discussion!  It was helpful for me (Faye) in preparing these lessons to wrestle with my own doubts about the possibility of miracles today.  The greatest area of growth was growing stronger in my conviction of our call to intercessory prayer as we see over and over in the miracles of Jesus that it was not the faith of the one ill, but the compassion of others that brings a response from Jesus.
