An Interconnectional Organisation with membership that spans different races and culture around the globe, sharing the same focus and passion to affirm our purpose To “To Know Christ and to Make Him Known”. The official emblem of the Methodist Women is the “Tree of Life” based on Revelations 22:2 – “…. On each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations. The tree is an evergreen signifying continuous life and vitality.
Warm greetings in the Mighty and Awesome Name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! Truly, our God is a great God who continues to show Himself faithful.
I congratulate and praise all you amazing sisters for your tireless efforts and passion in promoting the work of the Methodist Women, even in the challenging times.
I learnt that there are only 2 ways of living as a Christian woman : we either live for ourselves, or we live as an ambassador of the Lord Jesus Christ. Living as an ambassador of Jesus Christ is a high and difficult calling. Because of our sinful nature, our hearts will be inclined to love ourselves, serve ourselves, and live for ourselves. But God has called us to something radically different – to love Him, serve Him, and live for Him.
The message of Christ Jesus as Savior will compel us to share His love with others! That will look different in each person’s life – and each of us will have different opportunities. Love the people God puts in your life and share His love with them. Never underestimate the power of the Holy Spirit as He works in your relationships!
Methodist Women strives to provide such a platform for women connecting with women, challenging one another to grow in Christlikeness. Women have needs and challenges unique to their Christian walks. Women need emotionally safe environments. Women often feel safest sharing their hearts, asking questions, requesting prayer and speaking up when they’re with other women. Women need godly fellowship. Whether a woman is a new mom who rarely sees other adult women, a retiree who is home alone, or something in between, women need deep, rich and lasting connections that are meaningful and challenging.
The Lord calls us to grow. Women seem to challenge women in a very special way—when a woman sees another woman do a particular thing it somehow becomes more attainable for her. This goes back to the “iron sharpening iron” idea of Proverbs 27:17.
We hope to see the women’s ministry in the church not as an exception but an expectation as we are also co-heirs in the Kingdom. The women were the first to be witnesses to find the empty tomb, the first to witness the resurrected Jesus and the first to receive the command – Go and tell.
Being spirit-filled and armed with the plentiful gifts, we are a vitally essential partnership in the gospel – men and women humbly and joyfully complement each other’s God-given roles and gifts. MW desires to see generations of women after God’s heart. We aim to raise up ladies who will be blessings in their homes, churches and workplaces so that wherever they go, they will shine as ambassadors of Christ. We seek to actively engage women in our church to love God and to serve others through the various programmes and activities. No matter what your passions and gifts are (e.g. cooking, arts, music), we believe you can make a difference by using them to serve our beloved brothers and sisters in our respective churches.

Allow me to update you on the status of the Methodist Women Centre in Ulu Klang, Kuala Lumpur. The Centre is very serene and peaceful despite the noise from the SUKE and MRR2. At night you can’t hear the noise when you are in your rooms.
We have completed almost all the furnishing required in the rooms. Each room is twin-sharing and there are 18 units of such. There is 1 room which 3-bedded – 1 Queen Size and 1 Super single bed. As much as we would like to furnish and equip the rooms with the best like a “5-star hotel” we are mindful of our financial status. Things can be added as we move along. For the time being, we have furnished it with the basics. “Tenants” have to bring their own toiletries and towels.
A few local MW groups have come to use the place already and there are also enquiries from outside MW. We welcome all enquiries especially from para-church organisations and we will try as best as possible to support and give them the best rates.
To all the Conference MW Presidents, I would like to urge and encourage you to make the Centre your home too and have your EXCO meetings there.
Last but not least, a clarion call to all our women – be bold, be strong, be courageous. May we become strong and vigorous in His truth. Let our lives bloom with joy and thanksgiving for all the Lord is doing. May the glory of God continue to shine in our midst. May God bless the women that their lives may continue to be touched and destinies changed forever by His abiding grace.
Therefore, my beloved sisters, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.
