Women's Ministries Report - Johnson Park Sister Sister Ministry
It is against this backdrop that last Sabbath, 30th May 2015, the women of Real Harvest and New Providence Seventh Day Adventist Churches, along with the Women’s Ministries Director of the South Bahamas Conference, Sis. Jacqueline Gibson , visited the Princess Margaret Hospital. Just as we were unified in our attire, we were on one accord in meeting some of the needs of over 66 patients by distributing care packages and sharing the Word of God.
An atmosphere of hope, comfort and joy was evident as patients expressed their gratitude for the physical gifts received and the blessed assurance of Jesus’ love.
Let us continue to be steadfast in working for the Master, in preparing hearts for His second coming.

BETHANY WOMEN’S MINISTRIES’ HOSPITAL OUTREACH
It was with great delight and excitement that the Women’s Ministries ladies of the Bethany Seventh-day Adventist Church gathered in the parking lot of the Princess Magaret Hospital for the purpose of ministry. Dressed in our lavender and purple Women’s Ministries t-shirts, we armed ourselves with the Holy Spirit through prayer. Joining us were the Women’s Ministries Directors of the South Bahamas Conference, Sis. Jacqueline Gibson, Sis. Denise Johnson, of the Atlantic Caribbean Union Mission and Sister Cheryl from the Living Faith Church.
We each took several care packages in hand ready to share love with those we came in contact with. Each package was labeled with our Church’s phone contact and stuffed with a few cosmetic items and a magazine. We divided ourselves into three groups and covered 6 wards, inclusive of the nurses, distributing over 70 care packages. Our ladies were so energetic as they greeted patients, their family members and friends. It was my delight to see ladies, otherwise shy, venture out and pray with patients on their own and spend more time with those, who, obviously had no visitors.
We believe that God blessed our efforts as we became His hands and feet in ministry. As we prepared to leave we shared experiences and opportunities to follow up with individual situations. Sister Jacqui also passionately shared her vision for a few other initiatives that we will engage in this year.
Indeed, we look forward to our next visit as we seek other ways that we can engage in specific ministry projects. We plan to collaborate with Men’s Ministry for alleviating some of the burdens in the community, one person at a time.
As we were the first in the schedule of churches, we joyfully encourage other ladies to participate when you can in the hospital ministry.
Thank God for His Holy Spirit’s power! Thank God for this opportunity to serve.

Moss Town Seventh Day Adventist Church Women’s Ministry Community Outreach.
The Women’s Ministry Department of the Moss Town Seventh Day Adventist Church in Exuma garnered the support of the Men’s and Children’s Ministries Department to take part in a Community Outreach project on Sabbath, May 2. The exuberant church members knocked on almost every door and received warm receptions from the residents. The multi-purpose community walk about was to remind residents that the Seventh Day Adventist Church in their community loves them and want to impact their lives. Additionally, residents were given a short questionnaire to ascertain their needs and see how best we could respond to those needs. Furthermore, residents were given copies of the book, Health and Hope.
Pertinent to our community visit was to invite persons to the Mother’s Day Service. In an act of unselfishness, the mothers of the church opted not to celebrate Mother’s Day in the traditional way where they are served and pampered. They instead decided to serve the people in the community. Members of the community responded in a positive way and joined us on Sabbath for a day of worship and fellowship. Dr Deval Rolle was the Speaker for the day and the guest soloist was Nurse Gina Ferguson. At the end of the service our visitors joined us in a fellowship meal.
The response from the community was encouraging and a resident has committed to worship with us every week. We are grateful to our Heavenly Father for guiding us in this venture. We will endeavour to do this again soon. Please pray for our church us as we continue to “grow together in Christian love.”

Women’s Health Forum, joint initiative of Women’s and Health Ministries Department of The South Bahamas Conference held May 2, 2015.
There was a time of silence, of whispers. There was a time we didn't talk about our health issues. Many suffered alone in silence, in shame, in pain, in fear. Not so much anymore because we've begun to talk, to have the conversation. Going public with a disease as scary as breast cancer began the conversation and that public awareness has expanded beyond breast cancer to other cancers and other illnesses. The color pink is perennially tied to breast cancer. That's the Pink Impact!
On Saturday February 21th, 2015, The Women’s Ministries Department of the Grant’s Town Church hosted a program under the theme “Heart Smart” in keeping with Heart month.
The focus was on keeping our hearts healthy physically and spiritually and the ladies were all dressed in reds and pinks representing the colors of the heart.
The Women’s Ministries Director of the South Bahamas Conference, Sis. Jacqueline Gibson gave us the Charge on how to keep our spiritual hearts healthy and Dr. Dionne Dames-Rahming enlightened the women of the importance of keeping our physical hearts healthy.
All refreshments served focused on heart related healthy food – Fruits, Nuts and Grains, fresh fruit juices.
To God Be the Glory for the Women’s Ministries Department of the Grants Town Church.
