CONTRIBUTED BY CWJC
LEE COUNTY —
The Christian Women’s Jobs Corps (CWJC) of Lee County recently celebrated nine women who graduated from its fall session.
Christian Women’s Job Corps exists to minister to women in need with a hand up, not a handout. This is done by providing a vast array of life skills and job skills training, Bible study and a mission’s context of helping women rebuild their lives.
The following are some of the things the graduates said about the program after their recent graduation:
“I have especially enjoyed the time to know and think about myself. Because of CWJC, I will be better able to find my strength. … As each week came and went, I got excited for the next week because I could learn about myself, developing self-confidence and discovering I can do everything I want to do if I believe in myself. … I believe I am a different person now because I learned a lot through CWJC. … I am proud to graduate from CWJC and know I will get a job and be a strong woman on the inside and outside. … Because of CWJC, I will be better able to do whatever I want to do. … My heart has been changed through CWJC. They gave me spiritual practices for life. … Because of CWJC, I will be able to live in America with greater understanding. … Because of CWJC, I will be more able to forgive, have a more thankful heart and know myself better. … I learned to be grateful to be alive and that I can be an important person in the world.”
CWJC is a nonprofit, faith-based agency is recognized as a Nationally Certified Site by the Women’s Missionary Union of the Baptist Church.
