International Women's Day

Holly Friesen on March 10, 2010

Did you know that March 8th is International Women’s Day? According to www.internationalwomen’sday.com, it “is a global day celebrating the economic, political and social achievements of women past, present and future”.  It is a national holiday here in Ukraine and school and many businesses were closed for the day. There were also flower venders on the street corners and along the sidewalks as many people give flowers to the special women in their lives. The churches also have special programs to honor women much like we would for mother’s day.

Appropriately, on the evening on March 8th I had Dr. Miriam and a couple of other ladies from another mission organization in my home to discuss our burden for a pro-life ministry here in the Odessa region. God has already brought me in to contact with other people who share my vision for this type of ministry before I even had a chance to start looking! We are only in the very initial stages of brainstorming & researching possibilities. Pray that God would continue to direct our steps & bring us into contact with Ukrainians who would also have a vision for this type of ministry and would be qualified to provide leadership for it if it is His will.
