The ‘Girls’ of The Well gathered again at pastors on June 28th! The goal of the gathering this time was to learn how to grow a heart of hospitality. They cooked a meal and shared their lives with one another. Maureena (Pastor’s wife) also took this opportunity to share the amazing role that God has given to women. She shared how important it is to understand the mighty role women play in ministry. Much of this born out of these verses in Titus:
New King James Version (NKJV)
3 the older women likewise, that they be reverent in behavior, not slanderers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things— 4 that they admonish the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, 5 to be discreet, chaste, homemakers, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be blasphemed.
Furthermore, Kassi – one of the main coordinators of The Well had this to say about their last meeting:
“Cooking Maureena’s recipes are so much fun. A cup ful of this, and a spoonful of that, more water and more water. It was very nice for us girls to cook for Maureena who always cooks delicious meals for everyone. We had chicken curry, rice and, lentils…. Yummo! We made a campfire and talked about the second chapter of the book A Young Woman’s Walk with God. We talked about how giving to others will in return fill you up.” 2 Corinthians 9:7 ERV says – Each one of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give. You should not give if it makes you unhappy or if you feel forced to give. God loves those who are happy to give. Also Maureena shared Monika’s testimony. Lastly we prayed for the sister to the right of us as we were gathered around the fire. We closed the evening singing I have decided to follow Jesus and a dessert of blueberry bread! Yummo. :-)”
