How much are we involved in God’s Business❓
How much time do we invest in God’s Business❓
There are such Women in this group who are real Woman of Prayer and Faith.
I know Sister Annie Koshy, is involved 24/7 in God’s Business praying with those in need and intercedes for many.
During the Lockdown Sister Shalini and her team prayed and catered to the needs of Migrant labourers and looked after their daily requirements.
There was a team set up by Dr.Latha Christie to Counsel frustrated people during the Lockdown and still continues to do so
Priscilla Centre, set up by a friend ,an NGO, also caters to the needs of destitute Women making them self employed as well as upgrading them Spiritually.
May God Bless them for the wonderful work they are doing.
When God has given us Resources let us use it for the glory of God and invest in His Kingdom.
