Steering Committee Member Pearl Miller greets COB conference goers at the GWP booth

Global Women’s Project’s presence at Church of the Brethren Annual Conference 2014 in Columbus Ohio was marked by a Nigeria-themed display table inviting all who came by the table to send greetings and prayers for our sisters and brothers in the EYN church in Nigeria. Ekklesiyar Yan’uwa Nigeria (EYN) is in the heart of the region of Northeastern Nigeria that is experiencing deaths, kidnappings, and displacement as Boko Haram, an extremist group wields its campaign of terror in that area.

Global Women’s Project sponsored a session with Dr. Rebecca Dali, who spoke to an audience of approximately 50 about how lives have been affected by the conflict and the work of the organization she founded, Centre for Caring, Empowerment and Peace Initiatives. CCEPI has distributed relief materials to those displaced by the violence, and provided a comforting presence to those who have lost children and family members, homes, farms and churches. CCEPI and EYN have continued to uphold the importance of living in the way of Christ’s
peace.

At the display area, GWP also had an opportunity to visit with those who came by, to distribute Lenten calendars, and to offer information about the work of Global Women’s Project and its partners in Rwanda, Uganda, South Sudan, Nepal and the USA. Thank you to everyone who stopped by! If you missed our booth or were unable to attend the conference but have questions about GWP, our projects, or our resources, please send us an email or find us on Facebook. We look forward to sharing with you!
