Widow Strong Newsletter for April 10, 2020
On this holy and solemn day, Good Friday, I am in awe of the eternal Peace we have been given through Jesus’ sacrifice for us. God’s Presence that never leaves us, and His resulting Resurrection Power to face life with strength and purpose. Here is a link to a wonderful video series on the life of Jesus called The Chosen. It’s the BEST I’ve ever seen! Click Here to Watch all 8 episodes!

I love the following verse and am so thankful for the beauty of our community as we help one another!
16 This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters. 17 If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person? 18 Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.”
1 John 3:16-19 (NIV)
Your tax-deductible generosity is the fastest way to keep our center open and our programs available, as we fulfill the mission of James 1:27 to widows and their fatherless children.
Thank you for your generosity! Please Click Here to give.
Sharing hope, health, and healing with widows and their children is our honor. Your financial partnership directly supports our Widow Strong outreach and group programs.
Be strong and courageous, for the LORD is with you wherever you go. Joshua 1:9
