All In Ministries International Celebrating International Women's Day

International Women’s Day 2019


Are you counting the days until International Women’s Day on March 8th?

No? Maybe you haven’t heard of it.

You’re not alone. Many Americans are not aware of this holiday which originated in the USA more than 100 years ago.

Worldwide, however, International Women’s Day is celebrated in many countries like Mother’s Day is here in the United States – cards, small gifts, and extra hugs exchanged generously.

The beautiful difference is all women are honored; not just mothers. No one is left out. That’s why we here at All In Ministries International love it so much. Let’s appreciate and recognize all women.

All In Ministries Romania Abide Conference 2017 Romanian Women Learning about God

This year, International Women’s Day will be remembered differently for AIM.

We were invited months ago to celebrate International Women’s Day in Romania by offering an AIM training conference.

We smiled knowing the purpose of the holiday is to make a positive difference in a woman’s life. What greater impact can one make in a woman’s life but by helping her discover she is loved, valued, and has a purpose to make disciples of Jesus, and then equipping her to know Him well and share Him with others?

Most women around the world have never been taught these concepts. When these truths hit deep into a woman’s soul, her identity is changed. She brings positive difference not only to her family, but also to her tribe or village. The result is the same as when Jesus ministered to the Samaritan woman at the well (John 4). They drop everything to tell everyone. The gospel is advanced, and people encounter Jesus.

AIM International Women's Day

The world changes.

As we count down the days until International Women’s Day on March 8th, the first day of the training conference in Romania, we invite you to consider how you can make a positive difference in a woman’s life.

Be intentional.

Love women well.

Share Jesus with a woman…and she might just change the world.

P.S. Would you please pray for the upcoming mission on March 5-16 as we teach intensive discipleship conferences in Romania and Hungary. We’re so grateful for your ministry partnership through prayer.

The Power of Men Praying for Women


Romania Conference 2017 Woman Writing

Why return to Romania?

Why return when the women are doing all they were instructed to do from the AIM conference held in October 2017?

  • The women are making disciples.
  • The church is strengthened with women learning and living the Bible.
  • Women are serving in outreach ministries to gypsy villages for the first time!

The missionary said how men were thanking her for the AIM conference and sharing how their wives were changed because of it. The women were bringing positive change to their families and neighbors. Marriages were healed. There was immediate generational and community impact!

So, when the millennial-reaching, high-growth Romanian church asked for AIM to come back to conduct a follow-up teaching, we wondered…

Why return, God?  They are doing what the Bible says to do. What more should we teach them?

After six-months of prayer, God made Himself clear through prayer, scripture, and a ministry retreat that we must return. The day we said “yes” to the Romanian church, we emailed the missionary in Hungary who asked us to contact him if we were to ever return to the area.

You will not believe what he shared:

I just returned from a conference in Poland of European church planters.  At the conference, we prioritized topics.  In the top three was the obvious need for good training for women in our churches.  This was a group from five different countries from all over Europe, and we all sensed that God really wants us to focus more on women, in addition to what we are already doing.  
 
As you might guess, all but two of the 14 people were men and we all sat there like, “how is this going to happen?”

In a debrief with my Hungarian friends, we all committed to pray specifically for discipleship training for women in Budapest.  So, God is stirring hearts. All that being said, if AIM is interested we can definitely host a women’s discipleship conference for our network.

Door Open. Opportunity Everywhere!

After seeing the exponential impact of equipping women leaders during the 2018 AIM missions in Liberia and Ethiopia, we asked the missionaries to invite women leaders from across their networks to be in attendance. They understood and agreed.

By God’s grace and your partnership, we’ll be equipping women leaders in both Romania and Hungary this March at two separate three-day AIM conferences.  

Interestingly, many of the women leaders are literate and highly educated, but do NOT own study Bibles. Yet, God has already provided for our Romania sisters. The needed study Bibles have been generously donated to help teach women in their language so they may hear from God and share Jesus with others. Praise God! You can make a difference in these women’s lives too!

Will you partner with us? Time is short. The mission is March 5-16, 2019

We hope to hear from you soon. Thank you for your compassion and generosity.

Crazy God Math in Ethiopia

Have you ever volunteered at a nonprofit or ministry and, after serving, you felt like you were the one who was served?  You show up at a food pantry or the Boys and Girls Club to help others, but on your way out the door you discover you were the one who was blessed through serving. You volunteer to fill a role in the student ministry at your church, but in return you were filled. Something soul-stirring takes place after you give of yourself. You planned to give, but you received instead. Know the feeling? I call that Crazy God Math…

Are You Having a Slingshot Year?

Days turned into weeks. Weeks turned into months. We were weary of navigating a sea of infrastructure issues…

Pray the Devil Back to Hell

How far would you go to save the lives of those you love? Would you protest? Would you embarrass yourself? Would you pray? On this International Women’s day, we want to share one woman’s inspiring story that changed a nation…

One Woman Changed Liberia…and the change continues

God gave her a dream: Come together. Wear white. Sit silently and pray. One woman inspired many women to stage a silent protest that eventually brought peace to Liberia after years of civil war. But, the story of change does not end there…

Hindsight is 20-20 When You’re on the Other Side of the World

Days before we returned to Southeast Asia things went terribly wrong. Sickness landed me (Susan) in emergency care cancelling the mission we worked so hard preparing for during the last several months. How could this be when so much had already been done?…

Basketball Tournaments and a Perspective Shift

Ahh, springtime. The sun is setting later, flowers are blooming, and the sound of referee whistles and tennis shoes squeaking across a gym floor have been filling the air. March Madness, a time that fans of college basketball have been waiting for since last March, concludes tonight with the men’s national championship game of NCAA college basketball.

My husband and I are big fans of college sports. I grew up watching the Kentucky Wildcats play basketball and listening to my parents applaud wildly at every basket our team made…

Mama, It’s All About the Underwear

When our bouncy boys were younger, my daily goal was three-fold: keep them alive until bedtime, love them, and teach them about Jesus. That’s it. That was enough. Most days, I don’t think I did those three things well.

These days, my parenting style is like kite-flying…

How can taking a picture change a life forever?

We’ve heard stories of people angling for the perfect selfie, while dangerously putting themselves into harm’s way when tragedy strikes. Lives that ended much too soon because of…sadly…a photo.

What about the reverse? What about the lives forever changed for the good because of one photo taken of them?
