Women of Vision meet in Dallas

This week, the third national conference of Women of Vision—a program of the international relief and development organization World Vision—is being held in Dallas, Texas. Women of Vision is concerned to "equip and encourage [American] women to share their God-given resources to help impoverished women and children, who," as national director Penny Wood puts it, "sleep in a room the size of your king-size bed!"

Women of Vision is already established in seven American states and is currently reaching out to women in Kenya, Mexico, Guatemala, Haiti, the Dominican Republic, Bosnia, Romania, and Palestine. Its members are women who take time off from their busy lives—as business people, teachers, lawyers, young mothers—to bring resources to and encourage the native peoples of those countries in self-help projects that will benefit them more than just gifts of money.
