Vanuatu Mission observes the 2021 International Women's Day of Prayer

Inspired by stories of women in the Bible, women answer,"I WILL GO," to God's call to follow Him.

[Vanuatu] The Women’s International Day of Prayer reading [sermon resource packet, I Will Go] was a success. Many churches offered a full day's program. The afternoon session was dedicated to workshops.

Women who took part in presenting the message where led by the Holy Spirit as they stood boldly to speak. Women and church members where inspired by the stories which highlighted the theme “I WILL GO.”

Women were motivated and inspired as they realized there is a call to answer God from many different situations, even in places where it seems impossible.

In the islands, some churches combined to have the reading. Women were empowered and are answering the call to go first to their spouses, children and family, neighbors, workplaces, and to the ends of the earth.

As a women's ministry director, I am grateful to see our district pastors promoting this program.

Women in Malekula opened a group account for women's ministry as a way of staying in touch and for reviving each other through prayer and encouragement.

In North Efate, churches combined at Tanaliu to celebrate International Women's Day of Prayer. Children enjoyed their story. The afternoon workshop involved both men and women, and they ended the day with a circle of prayer. Everyone was blessed by the program.

Seventh-day Adventist women and women's ministry leaders of the local churches throughout the Port Vila district joined with the Inter-Church Women's group of Port Vila. A special service was conducted in a Presbyterian Church, Friday, March 5. Members of the Eratap Adventist Church, a small church outside of town, presented a special music for the service. The Adventist women created new connections with ladies from other denominations.
