On Costa Rican Mother’s Day (August 15th) I kicked off our new women’s group with a fancy night out for the ladies in the church office! We rented tables and beautiful table cloths and decorated with fresh flowers. A group of 3 women helped me to make all the preparations and each of them created something to add their own special touch to the night.
These women gathered for several weeks ahead to make gifts. They decorated bible bags to give to each woman, created beautiful scripture cards to set at each place and we gave each woman a special gift. Some of the ladies also received their first bible! It was a sweet night and before the night was over the women had named our group, “Mujeres Con Proposito” Women with Purpose. What a powerful name!
