Who We Are
WOMEN ON MISSION have a passion for missions. We meet the second Monday of each month at 11:30 in the Ministry Center. Each month a special speaker is invited to share with us his/her time of ministry on the field, whether it be overseas or here in the United States. We have heard speakers from Russia, Albania, Turkey, Peru, Honduras, Tanzania, and many other places around the globe, as well as representatives from the ministry to refugees in Clarkston, GA, Out of Darkness Ministry in Atlanta, Voice of the Martyrs, and many other U.S.-based mission groups.
We each receive a blessing from hearing the testimonies of these speakers. Often we learn of ways we can be involved in reaching out to the lost through these ministries. Recently, WOM collected clothes, kitchen items, linens, towels, sheets, etc., and spent a Saturday morning in Clarkston at The Lakes so that those refugees who left their home countries with so little were able to receive many items which they were able to use to start a new home here.
WOM supports a different missionary each year by sending them a monthly love gift. We also save and collect our loose pocket change to provide water filters for missionaries who do not have access to potable water. Periodically, we provide toiletry items which Hope House of Blairsville can share with its clients. As the Lord leads, we engage in projects which help missionaries or reach out to the lost. In all that we do, we aim to bring glory to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
We encourage you to come and join us on the second Monday of any given month. Participation is open to ALL women — young, old, or in between.
At the October meeting of WOM, our guest speaker was Celia Schoen. Celia has answered the call to move to the Middle East where she will live on an island in the Nile River, study and learn Arabic, and then work as a nurse among a people group that is unreached with the Gospel and is considered one of the lowest of the low. She is passionate about helping people with their health, but even more so with helping them to know that they need a Savior.
Next month our featured speaker will be our own Lorene Irvin. Lorene has spent the last two years as a Journeyman in a Central Asian country, where the vast majority of the people are Muslim. Lorene will share about the many ways she has had to interact in the lives of young women, and how many of them have responded to the message of hope found in our Lord. All ladies are invited to attend our meeting on November 11, at 11:30 in the Ministry Center. We hope to see you there!
