The “Hope for Europe – Women in Leadership” team is always planning a Day for Women for women of the area at the end of its conferences. As the conference 2021 is hold online because of the pandemic, ladies from different churches in Oradea (Nagyvárad) have planned this day – nevertheless. These ladies are preparing an interesting evangelistic program for women and children. The meeting will start in a park, where several actions are planned for women and their families, such as handicraft and face painting for kids, mother- and child-exercises. A special attraction is a clown, who will entertain the children, who have come with their moms. In the meantime a charity fair will be organized. The donations will be sent to two foundations that support children with disabilities. After the activities in the park have ended, the program will continue in a church nearby. Elke Werner will share her message there about “Windows of Opportunity”. The message will be completed with worship songs, testimonies and pantomime. We also plan to organize a puppet-show for the kids and give them a little gift package at the end. Hopefully the pandemic situation will allow the German Evangelist Elke Werner to travel toElke Werner Romania, because she was asked to be the main speaker about “Windows of Opportunity”, which the Gospel opens to women in these days. Please note: The 90-minutes meeting will be recorded and can be watched on YouTube with free access a week later, with subtitles in English.
