WfM Annual Get Together

& Project Launch

Women for Mission’s Annual Get Together 2024 took place on Saturday 18 May at Livingston Free Church.

At the event, updates were shared on the funds raised for WfM’s 2023/24 Project, “Breaking Barriers” and we heard updates from a variety of representatives from charities and organisations whom WfM have supported in the past.

During the meeting, the 2024-2025 ‘Empower’ project was announced. This project will support ongoing work with Blythswood Care in India, The Tumaini Fund in Tanzania, Patty and Manuel Reano in Colombia, and The Kerusso Trust in Malawi. To learn more about the new project, click here.
 
Following the meeting, attendees enjoyed a lovely time of fellowship together with refreshments.

We’re excited for as many people as possible to join us for the Annual Get Together at Livingston Free Church on Saturday 18 May at 2.00pm

In addition to being a great time for fellowship and connection we’ll be sharing updates on the funds raised for WfM’s 2023/24 Project, Breaking Barriers. We’ll also hear from individuals who’ve been supported by WfM in the past or will be in the upcoming year.

At the meeting, we will announce our next project and the new opportunities it offers for us to collaborate with Christian organisations making a positive impact, both practically and spiritually, locally and abroad, often under difficult circumstances.

Following the meeting, we’ll have refreshments and a bookstall featuring some fantastic books.

If you can’t join us in-person, you can join in via our livestream link.

Ali MacDonald

Update from Community House Damaris

“Hello, I’m Ali! I had the privilege of being part of a team from Smithton Church who visited Community House Damaris in Athens, Greece in October 2023.
We were blessed more than we could have ever imagined as we experienced this wonderful ministry of holistic care to sex-trafficked and abused women and their babies.
I look forward to sharing with you more about what we saw and did at Damaris.”
