"Caravan of Empowerment: Encouraging Women's Ministries"
October 3-14, 2013
Kentucky Baptist Fellowship, Kentucky Baptist Women In Ministry, and The Eglise Evangelique au Maroc will partner together in October to lead the first multicultural women’s experience for Kentuckians and Africans in Morocco. Lead by Karen Thomas Smith and Becky Caswell-Speight, this trip seeks to build relationships between women of the EEAM and women of the KBWIM. The group from Kentucky will travel (caravan) across the country of Morocco with women of the EEAM developing partnership, discovering ways to work together, and encouraging each other in their own cultures and contexts. The Caravan will pass through eight cities in Morocco where participants will meet EEAM women and discover women's initiatives there. Highlights include dialogue with Muslim women in Ifrane, meeting the EEAM's Pastor-in-Training - Miora Andriatsimalia in Agadir, and connecting with migrant women in Rabat. Please be in prayer for the group listed below as we prepare to travel in October.
