Photo Essay – Girls & Women at Work

Images from CommNet Media

Around the world, some girls and women spend hours each day pounding grain, tending livestock, hauling water or firewood and preparing meals for their families. Others work full-time in demanding professions or launch businesses to make ends meet.

Missionaries who seek to serve and share the love of God with busy women must be creative. They make the most of any moments to connect: offering and receiving hospitality, arranging children’s playdates, sharing chores and cooking or running errands together. Where opportunities for women are limited, Pioneers teams may establish businesses that employ women and help them find purpose and dignity.

Reason to Reflect

  • As you look at the images below, how would you pray for these women and girls? What do you think their needs, hopes and fears might be?
  • Now think about these women following Jesus. Chances are most of them don’t know Him yet.
  • What qualities might they bring to the Church and the Kingdom of God?
