It is an honor and privilege to serve as Area Chairperson for the Bronx-Westchester Area of the New York Conference Women’s Missionary Society. I trust God for his guidance, and I’m thankful for the numerous blessings He has poured out on me, determination to be the best that I can be, perseverance to endure and to rise above it all.  As I move forward, I will endeavor to work hard to be a difference maker in the many lives I’ll touch, and the various projects we’ll embark upon in the coming year.  The missionaries of Bronx-Westchester Area continue to be blessed by God and it is because of His blessings and His goodness that we are able to serve.

The Bronx-Westchester Area is comprised of eight Women’s
Missionary Societies as follows:

  • Faith Johnson WMS, Rev. Alicia Carpenter, President.
  • Ida Bartow Hick WMS, Sis. Denise Smith, President.
  • Jannie L. Bryant WMS, Sis. Valarie Ward-Barnes, President.
  • Julia Miles WMS, Sis. Lori Page, President.
  • Lila Reed WMS, Sis. Darlene Young, President.
  • Magnola Jackson WMS, Sis. Gloria Jeffries, President.
  • Mildred E. Jarvis WMS, Sis. Victoria Nwokelo, President.
  • Rebecca Cohen WMS, Sis. Dionne Mason, President.
Young People’s Department (YPD) — Sis. Sonia Spady, Area Director.

Bro. Uche Nwokelo, Area President.

Our goals and vision for the 2016-2017 conference year are as follows:

  • Extend our feeding and clothing ministry more broadly, particularly to seniors and families with little or no income.
  • Begin a health and wellness program, focusing on green living.
  • Continue to support the American Cancer Society, Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk.
  • Continue to donate $42 per month ($500) per year to the Smile Train project for two surgeries.
  • Continue monthly financial support to the St. Jude’s Children Hospital Cancer research.
  • Continue monthly financial support to Children’s International.

New Projects:

  • A sustainability cleanup project in each of our local community.
  • We’ll embark on a new mission call Period Project. We’ll partner with an organization that provides direct distribution of sustainable feminine hygiene kits by partnering with non profits, groups and organizations, by raising awareness, and more importantly, by helping impoverished communities start their own programs to supply kits and training for girls and women to use during their period.
We are called to strengthen our faith and sent to continue the ministry of Jesus Christ through service and witness in the world.

“Therefore, by their fruits you will know them.”  Matthew 7:20, NKJV
