I want to thank everyone for the prayers and sweet note cards during the period of my father’s death. God promises us in His Word that He will never leave us or forsake us. That He is always with us in our time of need. I know His presence was with me and my family during this time, but it was icing on the cake to know that our Christian brothers and sisters were also praying for us and sharing in our heartache. We have been so blessed through the years to have been able to have such a loving, caring family at Central.                                         We miss and love you,

Robbie Griffin

Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers in the recent passing of my dad, Max Cornelius.

Greg and Kara Cornelius

Thank you for all the prayers as I went through surgery and as I recover and rest now. Thank you for the many cards, flowers, phone calls, and food I received! I am so very thankful the Lord has taken good care of me, and I am so thankful for my loving Central church family!   Pati Dobbs

(Please read the article “About Us” to learn more about Women of Hope.)


Women of Hope is a ministry of Healing Hands that seeks to strengthen women around the world through education, business training, and microfinance. Our work is accomplished by our international staff in countries like Kenya, Uganda, Malawi, Zimbabwe, Tanzania, Ghana, and Haiti. Our Women of Hope coordinators host trainings, and support and encourage the women they work with.

We are always overwhelmed by the ripple impact of workshops and businesses. Time and time again, we see that when these women are empowered and earning an income, they send their children to school, share their new knowledge with others, and serve their communities. We truly believe that when women are empowered to dream, communities thrive.

Women of Hope is a program of Healing Hands International. Our mission is to aid, equip, and empower those in need around the world in the name of Jesus Christ so they might experience God’s healing grace through programs like clean water, agriculture workshops, women entrepreneurship, disaster relief, and more.
