International Women's Day of Prayer in Mexico
Friends are invited to "Prayer Calms Anxiety" program held in every church in the southeast of Mexico
Inter-American Division (IAD)
[Mexico] Every church in the Southeast Mexican Union Mission presented Sabbath morning services for International Women’s Day of Prayer, March 2, 2019. In addition, women of every church invited friends from their communities to an afternoon gathering with the theme, “Prayer calms anxiety.”
The afternoon program included a special presentation written by psychologist Edith Ruiz de Espinoza, director of women’s ministries for the Southeast Mexican Union. Of the 1,3000 women and men in attendance in the churches that afternoon, 270 were friends from the community. They learned about the Seventh-day Adventist Church through songs and biblical dramas. They enjoyed meeting with church members hosting spiritual activities throughout the territory.
Women in Southeast Mexican Union will conduct evangelistic meetings, “Encounters That Transform,” during the month of May. Creating an event with the purpose to accompany International Women’s Day of Prayer activities is part of the overall strategy of Inter-American Division—that of involving women in mission and preparing them to conduct their evangelistic campaigns.
