O, star of wonder, star of night,
Star with royal beauty bright,
Westward leading, still proceeding
Guide us to Thy perfect light.

I heard the bells on Christmas Day
Their old familiar carols play
And wild and sweet, the words repeat
Of peace on earth, goodwill to men.

Born to set Thy people free.

Women of Worth Retreat in Berlin, Ohio!

The Canton-Massillon Chapter of Women of Worth hosted its23rd Annual Retreat September 13-15 in Berlin, Ohio.  Over 160 women gathered at the Berlin Grande Hotel in Ohio’s Amish country for this longawaited event. 

 The women were greeted at the registration table with fresh apples and an emergency chocolate bar as they were signing in. Many of the rooms which were used this year had only recently been completed as part of the hotel’s new construction project. 

 The first session took place on Friday night, and after worship music and necessary announcements, Sarah Fry spoke on the topic “Blessed is She Who Thinks.”  She shared with the audience  the importance of right thinking. The Bible tells us to “take captive” wrong thoughts and to be “transformed by the renewing of our minds.” The brain has an amazing capacity called neuroplasticity, which allows it to create new brain pathways. 

 After the Friday night session, there was pizza and other snacks available and the ladies talked and laughed together in the main conference room. 

 On Saturday morning, the ladies enjoyed breakfast at the bountiful buffet provided by the hotel and then gathered in for two back-to -back sessions on “Blessed is She Who Gives”  and ‘Blessed is She who Listens.” The first session challenged the audience to look for the gifts (or tools) God has given them to use and to give out of health and fullness.  The second session gave the women listening tools for blessing others. 

 The women were dismissed at lunchtime to spend the afternoon as they desired. Many enjoyed a scrumptious meal at the Amish buffet next to the hotel; others chose similar dining venues.  And then most of the women used the afternoon hours to browse the many shops and markets in quaint Berlin and buy things from cheese to quilts to home d├ęcor. 

 On Saturday evening, the John Glick family gave a concert of gospel music, accompanied by many stringed instruments as well as keyboard. Their testimony of their ministry in prisons was inspiring and challenging. 

 Sunday morning found the ladies still enjoying the retreat. After the complimentary hotel breakfast, they gathered once more in the large conference center to sing praise in worship together and then to listen to one more session titled “Blessed is She Who Rests.” This session was convicting and reassuring, helping the audience see that rest is both a command and a blessing. 

 After enjoying box lunches, the women left, already talking about returning next year!

Prayer Requested for Our Caribbean WOW Chapter


We are so thankful that there were no deaths associated with our WOW Caribbean Chapter!  However, there is significant loss of property and much rebuilding to be done.  Thank you for your prayers and support!

As some of you may be aware, Hurricane Maria slammed the Caribbean island of Dominica as a category 5 hurricane the night of September 18th.  The tiny island was ravaged with wind and rain. We know from national news reports that the hospital and prime minister's residence both sustained heavy damage.  These two buildings would have likely been the sturdiest of buildings on the island.

Our request for prayer is for the whole island, but more specifically for our Caribbean ladies who are a part of the recently formed Caribbean Women of Worth.

First WOW meeting on Dominica

At this point, we have been unable to communicate with anyone on the island.  We do not know the condition of life and property.  Will you join us in prayer right now for our sisters on Dominica?

Please stay tuned to our facebook page for updates as they become available.  You can also donate to the relief effort at  Mark your gift for Hurricane Maria Relief, and 100% of your gift will benefit our WOW Caribbean sisters and their families.
