Message From the President, October 2016

Autumn is here!  Cooler weather but still warm hearts.  We will reap the harvest that God has promised to us if we continue to work and not faint. May God continue to bless us with the mental and physical ability to perform all He has called us to do! Hallelujah!  Special thanks are in order for Interim Pastor Isaac Fox and Sister Jessie Fox for hosting our September Fellowship meeting at Vermont Avenue Baptist Church.  It was wonderful to see everyone after the long summer break.


Please plan to join us for this month’s Fellowship meeting on October 21, 2016 at 7:00 PM with the serving of a light meal after the Executive Board meeting from 6:00 - 7:00PM. The meeting will be held at New Bethany Baptist Church located at 1300 10th Street, NW in Washington DC 20001 where Dr. Carson Wise is the Pastor and our hostess will be First Lady Bonnie Wise.  Our guest speaker will be Michelle Jackson, a certified Mental Health Counselor, who will be talking about the effects stress and our environment can have on one’s mental health and resources available to the public in the local DC area.  I hope to see you there!


Please keep these key events in mind as we approach the end of the year:

  1. The Baltimore-Washington Fellowship will take place on November 12, 2016 at my home church, Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church, 215 Rhode Island Avenue NW, Washington DC 20001. We need every BMWMWA member to attend and make this a welcoming and enjoyable brunch for our guests. First Lady Patricia Brown and the BWF Committee have been working diligently to make this a success. Sister Brown will share more details at our October Fellowship meeting.

  2. Founder's Day 2016 December, 2-3, 2016 in Richmond, Virginia. We will return this year to THE WESTIN RICHMOND Hotel -6631 West Broad Street 23230. The room rate is the same as last year, $119.00 per night. The deadline for your reservation is Friday, November 11, 2016. I encourage you to make reservations soon to receive the convention rate. We will again honor outstanding women for induction into the gallery of distinguished women, and recognize a sister with the spirit of our beloved founder, Dr. Elizabeth Coles Bouey. Make your plans now and encourage others to attend Founder's Day, 2016.

  3. The 2017 IAMWMW CONVENTION will be held on June 17 - 23, 2017 in Freeport, Grand Bahamas. Bahamas Nation President Dr. Sherrie S.

The Grand Lucyan is the headquarters hotel. Information for the convention site was given at Founders’ Day in Richmond.Remember, this convention will be relaxed, restful, fun, and comfortable in the land of sand, sea, and sun. Get ready to enjoy yourself!

Our Purpose:

“We promise to strengthen the bonds of friendship; strive towards a wholesome, harmonious, sympathetic, and sisterly relationship among ministers’ wives and widows everywhere, and to practice and uphold the great Christian principles given by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.”

Our Theme: “Sisters with a Legacy of Love and A Spirit of Service”

“3 Instead of being motivated by selfish ambition or vanity, each of you should, in humility, be moved to treat one another as more important than yourself.  4 Each of you should be concerned not only about your own interests, but about the interests of others as well.  5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus.”    Philippians 2:3-5
