Alaskan Women Meet for Prayer Breakfast
More than 50 women and their friends braved the early morning and sub-zero cold on Jan. 22 to experience the Alaska women's ministries prayer breakfast at the Alaska Conference office in Anchorage.
Glenda Pyle and Theodosia Underwood, both from Anchorage, spoke on prayer, its importance and how to pray effectively. Guests shared personal prayer needs and experiences as they prayed together in groups.
Linda Carcano told of her battle with brain cancer and how the prayers of her church family saved her life. Gladis Gerena, who recently moved to Alaska from Puerto Rico, described how she lost her purse and passport the day before flying to Alaska, but her prayers were answered and her purse was found.
Jean Francis-Gobah, Alaska Conference women's ministries director, shared the North American Division REACH (Reformation and transformation, Education for discipleship, Alignment in God's church, Community outreach and evangelism, and Health leadership management).
The Alaska Conference has established a prayer line, which anyone may call Tuesdays from 7–8 p.m. (Alaska Daylight Time) for weekly prayer. Call 800-977-8002 and enter participant conference code #77861556.
