In February AB Women’s Ministries provided $758.92 gifts from the Refit Fund to eight churches identified by the New Church Development staff in American Baptist Home Mission Societies. In this picture is the Rev. Dr. Marcia Patton (executive minister, Evergreen Baptist Association) and Gail Aita (ABWM coordinator of the Western Section) with the women from one of the recipient congregations: Seattle Falam Baptist Church, Renton, Washington, pastored by Rev. Kip Thian Pau. Some of the funds will likely be used to help some of these women attend the Pacific Northwest AB Women’s Conference/Leadership Conference in April. Donations to the Refit Fund are welcomed by AB Women’s Ministries to provide for ministry needs of new churches. Send checks payable to ABWM Women and Girls Mission Fund and write “For Refit” in the memo line. Mail to AB Women’s Ministries, P.O. Box 851, Valley Forge, PA 19482-0851. Thank you!
A very warm welcome to Thaw Eh Moo, who has arrived to Valley Forge, Pennsylvania, from Myanmar to do a 10-week internship with American Baptist Women's Ministries. (Pictured here with ABWM Executive DirectorVirginia Holmstrom and ABWM Project/Business Manager Wendy Clemmer).
