Southern Asia Celebrates Twenty-five Years of the Department of Women's Ministries

Premila Masih gives personal testimony to what Women's Ministries means to her.

Southern Asia Division (SUD)

We women of Southern Asia Division are our sisters' keepers. This is what Women's Ministries means to us—together we hold one another's hands, to fulfill the purpose of life given as a woman in the family, in the church, in the workplace and in the community to Nurture, Empower, and Reach out to the world! With His Grace, we will finish our race successfully.

Women’s Ministries is a place where women are for women. We learn, we grow, and we change. It’s a beautiful ministry. Its place is to address the spiritual, emotional, physical, and social needs of women in the church and community. This is what it means to me and the women in my territory.

The year 2020 started with the usual pomp and zeal. For our Adventist women, it is the year of Silver Jubilee Celebration, the twenty-fifth anniversary of our Women’s Ministries Department. All Praise to God!

To commemorate this occasion the Women’s Ministries arranged some special Women’s Day Celebrations, prayer meetings, food distribution to the poor. and other activities.

Suddenly, the pandemic intervened. So instead of celebrations and gatherings, we started serving the community by distributing blankets, masks and sanitizers, and food stuff to the poor in rural areas.

We also held "polio drops day" for children who had not been inoculated.

During the quarantine more family worship in homes also added beauty to twenty-five years of Women’s Ministries celebration.

Different activities marked this event. We praise God for the twenty-five years of Women’s Ministries in Southern Asia Division.
