Did you know that April 7 is Women’s Day here in Africa? Local ladies typically dress up and go on outings with each other on this holiday. Unfortunately, some grow angry or even violent when their husbands don’t honor them on the occasion with the gifts they desire.
In our congregation, Women’s Day, which fell on a Sunday this year, was a happy event. As a surprise during our service, the men all stood in front to honor us ladies with a Scripture reading, comments of appreciation, and roses personally presented to each one of us. Thanks be to God for the love He gives between brothers and sisters in Christ.
