Women's Ministries
at the 2018 Portland Women's Expo

By Terrie Leen Griebel

Oregon Conference Women’s Ministries participated for the 3rd year at the Portland Women’s Expo held at the Oregon Convention Center.

Portland Women’s Expo is sponsored by The Portland Women’s Resource Initiative, which is a Non-Profit Organization. The ultimate goal of PWRI is to build a Resource Center for Women to help them gain resources to successfully sustain themselves and their families.

Women’s Ministries gave our over 400 copies of Step to Christ and Living a Long & Beautiful Life, Domestic Violence Pamphlets, and Bibles.

Jan Bishop states “It was a joy and privilege to be a part of the Women’s Expo event.  We met several hundred women who were more than interested, and wanted to know more about God.  We encountered SDA women who had left the church, however, they stilled reached out to us and thanks us for being present at the Expo event. 

Pamela Lewis said, “Every year I ponder on what type of responses our booth might receive.  Many women shared testimonies, and a few kept silent.  Only to speak with their eyes - revealing a gentle heart of gratitude, while reaching for Steps to Christ and/or the Domestic Violence pamphlets. Some women welcomed the instant prayers”.
