[Inter-America] Thousands of Seventh-day Adventist women of Inter-America went to the streets in their communities to distribute 56,000 copies of Chosen and Loved, a one-time publication for women.
This specially prepared magazine was designed to reach women in local communities through articles dealing with abuse, neglect, regret, breast cancer, caring for themselves, and finding a way to God. Many local city mayors made available community centers to hold seminars and provide preventive health measures during the magazine distribution.
Chosen and Loved magazine published for non-members is the next phase of the "Chosen and Loved" program designed with a complete kit for friendship evangelism.
“We continue with this program, "Chosen and Loved," with its different aspects of evangelism,” says Dinorah Rivera, director of Women’s Ministries for Inter-America, “because we purposely seek to uphold, nurture, empower, and love women, young and old, pointing them to the fountain of power and love, Jesus Christ.”
The first goal of the "Chosen and Loved" program, produced by the Inter-American Division Women’s Ministries department, is to instill in each woman the understanding of being loved by God. Each woman is specially made for a particular purpose and being one with God will share the love of God with others.
