Special Invitation from Executive Director, Marlene Bogard for #GivingTuesday

Dear Friends,

I can’t stop thinking about the Christian Anabaptist women from all over the world who are so hungry for learning, so ready for study, so able to serve and so very eager to lead. Each year we evaluate applications and choose who to support for our International Women’s Fund scholarships.

Listen to their hopes and dreams:

“I have a clear call from God. There are barriers for me to go to North Korea to share God’s love, but I trust that God will open them.”


“I want to train and teach children and youth, in the field of psychological health, based on biblical perspectives.”


“I am not able to take final exams because I have run out of funds. I want to teach religious studies.”


So here is my special invitation to you: will you support our International Women’s Fund by participating in #GivingTuesday tomorrow, Tuesday, December 1? Today, or tomorrow, just click on this link to our special IWF giving on the Mennonite Women USA website and give so women around the world can continue their theological studies.

Your dollars go much farther than you can imagine to support Anabaptist women in Thailand, Colombia, Korea, Tanzania, Congo, Kenya, Guatemala, Mexico, Belize and Nicaragua.

“The light that you plant is going to light up much more than you ever could imagine.” -Alix Lozano of Colombia–church leader and recipient of an International Women’s Fund scholarship.

 With a grateful heart,

Marlene Bogard

Online Shop Fulfills Mission of Mennonite Women USA

Mennonite Women USA announces the newly launched online shop added to their website in late June 2015. It was created and developed in response to the needs and desires expressed by their supporters. Instead of having to call the office or send a letter indicating interest for particular materials, the Mennonite Women USA shop has all of their resources and materials available at the touch of a button.

The store is fully functional and responds to customers shopping from their desktop, laptop, tablet or smart phone. Now you can purchase as many copies of the latest Bible Study Guide Spark: Igniting Your God-Given Creativity right online for your groups or Sunday School classes.

With the launch of this new digital store Mennonite Women USA is offering bundle pricing for Sister Care materials, too. The discount encourages visitors to purchase their desired materials in a bundle to save money. One such offer brings a 20% savings over purchasing items individually. Continue reading
