Women's Prayer day in Gorleston and Yarmouth

This year’s Women`s World Day of Prayer event has been prepared by Christian women of the Philippines under the title of "Am I being Unfair to you?", and there will be services in Great Yarmouth and Gorleston.

“God gave the Philippines abundant resources, both human and material. God is the great provider and provision is for all of creation. This is God’s display of economic justice in contrast to the economy where the strong and powerful take God’s resources for themselves and their families. The kingdom of God provides for all, even for those who do not acknowledge it.” - A Glimpse of the Philippine Situation, by Rowena “Apol” Laxamana-Sta.Rosa.
