Women’s Ministry holds workshop and skill trainings for young women

A one day workshop was held at the EYN Headquarters. It was planned for 50-100 women but 329 ended up attending. The topics for the day were 1. Singleness is not a sin  2. Protect your virginity  3. Modesty – Proper ways to dress. The day also included HIV/AIDS education along with spiritual counseling.

Several Muslim girls also attended the workshop. One of these girls was in tears as she told the Women’s Director, Suzan Mark, that both her parents had been killed by Muslims and she wanted to associated with Christians. God has been using the Boko Haram Insurgency to convert Muslims to Christianity. Praise God for this witness and pray for those who convert.

EYN Women’s Ministry also organized skills training workshops in three different areas across the North-east with 186 attending. It was interesting that five boys asked to join the training stating that they too needed encouragement and assistance to make it in life. They were accommodated at the skills training and were such fast learners that they were able to help others in mastering some of the skills. Everyone at the skills training were encouraged to not stay idle but to try some small business that can generate a little income. Leaders of the training gave personal testimonies of how learning a skill gave them a reason for living and added value to their lives.

2018 OCHA report stated that 30% of households in the Northeast now have women heading the homes and have great difficulty in providing for their families. It also reported that 6 out of 10 women have experienced some sort of gender-based violence. Please continue to pray for the women in North-east Nigeria. Keep up the great work, EYN Women’s Ministry!

  1. “This post is akin to saying we should make it illegal for children to play outside. Are you trying to stir up controversy here, Crunchy??”Ok–are you serious? There is so NOT a comparison. I am not letting my kids POOP in someone else’s yard!!!! My kids are out all day and night unsupervised, left to fend for themselves, destroy other peoples’ property, or howl all night long as free-roaming cats are.

  2. What kind of medical expenses are eligible… are specpts (eye galsses eligible), if yes, can you also quote a govt of india site’s link which says so/defines the nature of expenses which are eligible/ineligible to claim under the medical expenses 15,000 limit?

  3. Seriously? What *isn’t* a great way to enjoy chocolate??! I’m fairly partial to straight up high quality chocolate. I’m also utterly addicted to my mom’s chocolate raspberry truffles… Mmmm. And hot chocolate, high quality drinking chocolate stuff. And, and, and…

  4. Grace, thank you so much for sharing your personal details on this topic. Not an easy subject for some people.I was on Wellbutrin for years when in college and into my twenties. It was a lifesaver for me, too. My depression faded away when I got divorced (still find that funny) but the anxiety started rearing its ugly head a few years later. Both run rampant in my family. Thank you for reading today and I’m so glad that you’ve found meds that work well for you.

  5. – I believe the only oral vaccine is the rotavirus one… everything else is administered through a shot. And several of the vaccines are bundled so it is still more than 9. I wouldn’t consider myself a part of the “anti-vaccine” crowd because I do believe in vaccinating, but at a less aggressive pace. That is terrible that your dad and grandparents had to experience a tragedy like that… I don’t know what I would do either…

  11. Even though you weren’t there for the birth (which, wow! that was fast!), you captured beautiful moments nonetheless. Which really shouldn’t be a shock because I am in love with all of your photos. Good work and congrats to the new parents! Olivia is beautiful.Kiki´s last [type] ..

  12. SO If I am building my main site and considering forwarding several exact match keyword domains to the main site – am I going to be penalized by Google?  I don’t know if the forwards had sites registered to them previously or not but using the Adwords Keyword tool I found 8 -10 that have 250K + local searches per month, am I going to shoot myself in the foot forwarding these.  They are all tightly matched to my niche.  What are the pros / cons here?  Is there a better way to leverage my idea?Really appreciate all your comments.- Shah

  13. Thomas, thanks. The course at Stromlo is quite soft and the downhill bits come in a couple of sections (it's not continuous downhill), so there'd be less risk I think. Yes, that's a good point too about racing fast 5ks. On one I peak for I'd like to go out a bit quicker and hang on. There's also the advantage (in a more populous race!) that you get caught up in racing a slightly faster group.

  15. Spending time with my best friend always helps. A long walk is always good and I have some of those relaxation CD’s that I loaded onto my Ipod. Lying down and listening to the ocean or a soft rain always relaxes me immensely. Going to see my mom helps alot too. Just being near her relaxes me.
