Because YOU gave for the 2017 Day of Prayer!!
Every year, during Day of Prayer we PRAY for each other. But we also GIVE! These offerings go toward the costs of running your Continental Union work and also the BWA Women's work on the global scale. As part of that, these offerings go to projects. You can see on your Continental Union websites where the funds were shared in your Continent. This is where the funds were shared through BWA Women on a global scale through your giving to the 2017 Day of Prayer offering:
