Sometimes God speaks to us through people, sometimes we hear God through the same idea or words in our minds over and over again, sometimes He speaks loudly to us through His Word, and sometimes He impresses a need upon our hearts continuously until that need is finally acknowledged. What began in the summer as a subtle knock on the hearts of women on both sides of the river is now growing into a beautiful, Kingdom-led ministry opportunity. God has spoken to so many women in all of these different ways and we hear Him saying, “Now is the time, daughters! Act now.” So we are. We are listening, we are following, and we are doing.
A new women’s ministry, “Töchter des Königs der Könige” (Daughters of the King of Kings), will host its first bible study on Wednesday – the official kickoff to get us pumped up and encouraged. We will be joined by women from Women for Eastern European Missions who have just wrapped up their book tour through Ukraine with women’s devotional book author, Dana Grubb. Dana Grubb is the author behind “Changed by Jesus: Lessons Learned from Women Jesus Touched” – our study material for the upcoming months, which W.E.E.M. has generously given to us free of charge. These wonderful women will start us off with a mini-study in which we will talk about amazing biblical women like Hannah, Abigail, and Mary Magdalene.
Following this kickoff, we will all take our new study materials home and study at our own individual paces for the next month. Following this month of study, we will come back together for another night of Töchter des Königs der Könige, but this time to talk about what we’ve learned over the last month. We’ll eat together, listen to one another, and cheer one another on in our individual battles against darkness. This will be the regular routine of the ministry unless God takes it in a different direction. God is in charge and holds the reigns of this ministry, and He will mold, shape, and grow it as He sees most beneficial to His Kingdom. We feel God telling us, showing us, how much we need each other, and how important it is to be there for one another as a friend, a sister, and a daughter of the King of Kings.
