Just a quick post to say that the entry for the She Speaks Scholarship is officially closed. Thank you for posting your comments and sharing a piece of your life with me. My heart ached for so many of the women who posted a comment. God is good, but life is hard. I'm glad we have each other.
The winner of the scholarship will be announced Monday morning on http://www.proverbs31.org/. Once I find out who it is, I'll post it here too.
If you don't win this scholarship, I don't want you to think that's a sign from God you aren't supposed to go. Perhaps God has got another miracle planned for you. Perhaps He want to bring someone else into this miracle. Please don't give up.
One way many of our participants get to She Speaks is by raising donations. This truly is a good investment in advancing the kingdom of God. Imagine if every woman who attend She Speaks (apprx. 600) goes out and spreads the Gospel to 10 other people. There are easily 6,000 people who will hear the Good News. What if they speak to 100 people? That's 60,000 people who will hear the Good News.
What if each woman writes an article about her testimony and God's faithfulness, and 1,000 people read it? That's 600,000 people who have heard the Good News.
Have I convinced you yet that She Speaks is a good investment in Kingdom work?
We've got a sample letter on our website, and directions for what to do with the donations. Go to www.shespeaksconference.com. At the bottom left, there is a green button that says “Scholarship Info." Clink on that link and you'll find the information.
Thank you again for entering. I believe with all my heart that God will make a way for you to attend if you are supposed to attend.
In His Love,
