Last evening the Women’s Fellowship held their annual May dinner, and attendees were treated to good food, good fellowship, and a powerful presentation on human trafficking. The guest speaker, Joy Fopma, shared testimony of her work with the rescue organization “Wings of Refuge”. This organization seeks to rescue and restore female victims of trafficking by offering them safe shelter and the opportunity to learn new life skills. Following her presentation, $4000 raised by the Women’s Fellowship was disbursed to various organizations: $1000 to OCWM, $250 to UDMO for swim passes, $300 to Beacon of Hope,$300 to A.C.E., $500 to Wings of Refuge, $300 to the Webster City Free Clinic, $500 to Youth and Family Services, $400 to Kids Against Hunger, $100 to Crimestoppers, $200 to the Romanian Mission Trip, and $150 to the WC Summer Lunch program. A very special evening–thank you ladies for your tireless work on behalf of First Congregational Church!
