In Comunidade Pedras Vivas we are very blessed to have a group of women who are keen to study the Bible. In May we had our first Bible study together when we studied Titus 2: 3-5, emphasising the need for older women in the faith to teach younger women how to live, love their husbands and to be good witnesses. ‘Women learning from women’ is our strapline and each month we meet together to learn from each other and to learn from the women of the Bible. In May we studied the life of Eve, the first woman, and drew out many lessons on God’s plan and purpose for marriage, the differing, complementary roles of men and women in the home and in church, and how sin entered the world and God’s promise of a Saviour in Genesis 3:15. At the beginning of June we will study the life of Sara.
As well as a time of Bible study, led by Amada and Heather, there is time to pray for each other and, of course, to chat over afternoon tea. We try to meet on the first Saturday of each month and so far we have had very encouraging times together. We are a mixed group of women, younger and older, married and divorced, Portuguese, Brazilian and Irish! As well as growing together in faith, our desire is to reach out to other women who do not yet know Jesus. With this in mind, from time to time, we organise evangelistic activities. On Friday 29 June, we hope to have a fun evening of food demonstrations interspersed with testimonies of some of the women in our group. We hope to invite our non-Christian friends and family and the women who participated with us in the past at English Night.
