OUR MARCH 10th OUTREACH EVENT WAS FANTASTIC!
More than 100 concerned individuals gathered on March 10th at St. Mark Presbyterian in Newport Beach to listen to World Vision Senior Photojournalist Laura Reinhardt, a deeply empathetic advocate for children, share her recent experiences with Syrian refugees, representing this devastating crisis through her amazing photos and stories. After hearing the many ways that World Vision, the largest global Christian humanitarian organization, impacts the lives of thousands of refugee children and their families, the group helped assemble Promise Packs of supplies for refugee children, and experienced refugee life in 3D Virtual Reality. There was a tremendous outpouring of financial support of over $50,000, thanks to a generous match from an anoymous donor.
NEXT LEADERSHIP MEETING:
OUR FALL FRIENDSHIP AND COFFEE GATHERING WAS WONDERFUL!
We gathered at St. Mark Presbyterian, to hear guest speaker, Dr. Ray Norman, author of Dangerous Love., tell his dramatic spirit-filled story. Coffee with friends, updates on WOV outreach to young Kenyan students, gift shopping with our annual favorite, Heavenly Treasures (while helping artisans support their villages)--what's not to love!
WE WRAPPED AN AMAZING YEAR, WOMEN OF VISION!
