Have you ever had someone in your life that encouraged you? Rejuvenated your spirit? Somehow helped you find hope or energy for a difficult task? Challenged you to see the world through God’s eyes?
The Sisterhood of WOW has many, many friends who have come alongside us and helped when we have asked. We even have several friends who pursue us and ask us what they can do. One of these dear friends has gone far above and beyond to help the poor and oppressed. She has hiked into the Grand Canyon to raise support for the mission of WOW. She has attended event after event, inviting everyone she knows to come. She volunteers to set-up, work tables, tear-down… no job is beneath her and she is never seeking the glory for herself. She never waivers in her dedication to the people of India, thus encouraging the Sisterhood to fight the good fight. She is the one and only Gail Benn.
Gail’s joy and commitment to follow her Savior Jesus Christ by loving everyone around her is shown radiantly in this picture. But what isn’t seen in this picture is how she has served and lifted up the Sisterhood. She has been a blessing to us and her “sweet friendship refreshes the soul” (Proverbs 27:9 – The Message) of each one of us. Without the love and support of Gail and our many other friends, WOW would not be able to do what we do. So, we say THANK YOU!
