Dear Sisters in Christ,
It is a real privilege to greet you all in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ at this special time in the Christian year – this lovely season of Christmas.
As I reflect on 2013, my heart is full of thankfulness for all the women I have met during the year who are truly walking worthy of the Lord, women from all walks of life – the disadvantaged and the advantaged, in the villages and in the cities. I can only humble myself and honour you when I hear the wonderful, and sometimes painful, stories of your lives and praise the Lord as I see how joyfully you are serving Christ even when life is tough.
Sisters, let us keep walking worthy of the Lord! By the grace of God we can once again celebrate and praise his name for the wonderful gift of his Son, Jesus Christ, coming into our world so that we might have eternal life. Let us remember once more the truths found in Isaiah 9.6:
For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace (NKJV).
I pray that the miracle of Christmas will fill your hearts with warmth and love.
A very happy Christmas to you all!
World President of Women’s Ministries
