Over the past several months, we’ve all experienced unprecedented disruptions to our daily lives, both personally and professionally. As we settle into a “new” normal, change is the only constant! We at WICC, have pivoted with every new restriction and regulation as it has been announced, and we have been ahead of the game in keeping our staff safe and productive in home-based offices. Our office building may be predominately closed, but our ministry has continued.
Please continue to pray for the office staff working from home and for their occasional days in the office to process the mail. Cheques are still arriving from 2020 World Day of Prayer services across the country. Tax receipts for those donations will be mailed out later in the summer.

We cherish your prayers as we continue together to respond faithfully and prayerfully to restore hope to women touched by injustice.
For the first time, our Board will meet virtually via Zoom instead of our typical June face-to-face meeting. Please pray for our ability to concentrate and carry out the business of the board on June 19-20.
Much of the board work is on-going as the grant review process is evaluating the applications to see which ones fit denominational teaching and the COVID-19 timeline. They will be approved at the board meeting and distributed to the successful organizations.
The World Day of Prayer Team is working on the 2021 service from Vanuatu. The theme “Build on a Strong Foundation” is so appropriate considering the shifting sands we are on in our changing times. Lives change. God doesn’t. Thank you to each of you and your prayerful contributions as we remain rooted in faith and called to action together.
Be safe! Be blessed!
Rev. Steph McClellan – WICC President-Elect
