Women’s Meetings (AR09)

by Angela Kim

The women of Iglesia Biblica Misionera (IBM) are so very precious. They love to hear God’s Word being taught and desire to live it out in their daily lives. I’ve had the privilege of sharing with the IBM women there in both corporate and individual contexts. I enjoyed meeting the women of all different ages, from a 12-year-old youth gal and a 16-year-old mother of a baby to a 90- year-old grandma. The day after we arrived, a women’s event took place where we sang songs of worship, played an icebreaker game led by a couple of youth girls, drank tea with delicious snacks, and I got the chance to share my testimony as well as teach the women from God’s Word.

Looking at the faces of these women eager to learn and fellowship with the other women encouraged my teammates and me greatly. One of the translators, Noelia, did a wonderful job translating the message into Spanish. The following day, the whole church had a park day and we had an opportunity to fellowship with them. We formed as group of moms and they asked me to share regarding biblical parenting and to answer some practical questions they had. Though it was quite spontaneous, we ended up having a profitable time in discussing the issues we all face as moms (and grandmas). It’s interesting that the problems in Tucumán are very much the same as those in San Diego or anywhere else in the world. Many other women asked to meet with one of us individually to receive counseling and to share their burdens so that we might be able to pray for them and share from God’s Word in a more personal way. I was truly challenged to gain wisdom from the principles from the Scriptures to examine my own heart and life as well as to share it with the women there in Argentina. I met several women who love God and people so passionately. They live in such a way that represents Christ with the sole purpose of living out and sharing the gospel with their family and neighbors.
