Building Christ-Centered Community Among Women 

Merry Christmas JANES!
I can't believe this is the last newsletter of 2008!  This has been such an exciting year in the life of JANES and 2009 promises more of the same.  As you prepare to spend time celebrating the birth of our Savior, I pray that you will find peace in the midst of a busy season.  And as you look forward to what the new year holds, I pray that you would fulfill your "determined purpose" to know Him more in 2009.
I love you all and I am so blessed to serve alongside you. Thank you for all that you do to  bring the love of Jesus to the women of our church and community!
Rejoicing in this Season,

GLO Conference for Women
March 6-7, 2009
Bay Area Fellowship Corpus Christi
"...Women who have lived wisely and well will shine brilliantly, like the cloudless, star-strewn night skies. And those who put others on the right path to life will GLOw like stars forever." 
Daniel 12:3                                                               
CWJC Grads A Note From CWJC
Last night the Christian Women's Job Corps  Graduated 10 women!    
We estimated that there were over 120 in attendance, family members, volunteers and South Texas Children's Home staff. Above all, God was honored as each woman gave a testimony about what He had done in her life through these past twelve weeks.We give thanks for all those who had a hand in this semester's work and in this beautiful  graduation celebration.
 Five women came to know the Lord this semester and one rededicated her life.  All eleven know that their lives are in God's safe keeping and they are learning to walk in faith!
We look at those things and say ...ONLY GOD!   
As we give thanks for all of you who have so faithfully lifted up CWJC and all its participants and volunteers in prayer, we ask you to join us in giving praise, for all God has done and will continue to do in the lives of these graduates! 
Please continue to pray for these women that they will hold fast to the hand of the Lord, seek Him daily, find churches where they can grow and be nurtured and stay connected with God's people.  Please pray for their mentors who will
walk with them in these next months.
This Thanksgiving CWJC thanks the Lord for YOU and your faithful service in His name.  As You celebrate this season with family and friends, may you have a BLESSED THANKSGIVING!!!!
