RABUNIFI

She looketh well to the ways of her household,
and eateth not the bread of idleness.

Her children arise up, and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praiseth her.

Many daughters have done virtuously,
but thou excellest them all.

Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain:
but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised.
Give her of the fruit of her hands;
and let her own works praise her in the gates.

Proverbs 31:27 -31

This month of 31 Days with the Proverbs 31 Woman at
Hisbeloveds

has been wonderful. And I would like to share a group of women
who are caring for their families with the work of their hands.


Rabunfi in Arabic means God is here.

The women of Africa will be opening an online craft site through the help of Far Reaching Ministries, below is some info on how they began

"Knowing that each woman’s greatest need- her need for a Savior – was already met we began prayerfully seeking a way to ease their poverty and physical suffering. Many women went into dangerous areas of the bush (where the threat of rebel soldiers who were known to rape, kill, and abduct was very real) in search of firewood to sell. One bundle of wood was only enough to put one meal on the table for their children. There were not enough hours in the day to fetch water from a well, cut and sell the wood, wash, cook and clean for a large family…let alone to come and sit attentively at Bible Study. We even saw women out of desperation brew grain alcohol or sell their own bodies just to feed their children. We prayed daily begging Jehovah the Healer to touch their children because there was no money for medicine. Our hearts broke for these ladies in their overwhelming need. "

You can read the rest at their website RABUNIFI
