As the women who will join us in South Africa for Women of Strength prepare to leave for their mission trip, we wanted to share a prayer journal that we have prepared for them.
Journey with us in prayer for South Africa and the women who have answered the call to be disrupters in this beautiful country.
The theme of this year's Women of Strength mission trip is based on Romans 3:28: In Step with God
So where does that leave our proud Jewish insider claims and counterclaims? Canceled? Yes, canceled. What we’ve learned is this: God does not respond to what we do; we respond to what God does. We’ve finally figured it out. Our lives get in step with God and all others by letting him set the pace, not by proudly or anxiously trying to run the parade.
