Here is something that we, Mennonite Women Canada, are rather proud of!
In 2007 Canadian Mennonite Editor/Publisher Tim Miller Dyck approached Erna Neufeldt - former Mennonite Women Canada President (2005-11), and invited us into a new and exciting venture.
Six times a year we would have a full page in the Canadian Mennonite on which to tell the varied and inspirational stories of women walking the faith.
Leona Dueck Penner is the CM liaison for us and helps us write and re-write our articles until we get it right. We appreciate her continued help and support she still keeps giving us, even to this very day.
Our first article featured the "Pennies & Prayer Inheritance Fund" and it appeared in the Nov. 12/07 issue. Since then we have had many articles with diverse topics. We were also invited to submit our own photos to go with our articles and surprise, surprise... on 4 occasions our photos have been chosen to grace the front cover of the Canadian Mennonite magazine.
Below are the 4 front covers...
