Your gifts make a difference for WMU ministries like Christian Women’s Job Corps. Akevia was down on her luck when she found CWJC. She was helping others, maintaining a 4.0 grade point average in school, working multiple jobs, and learning how to be a new mom. Akevia’s dream was to become a teacher, and it was clear that she would be a natural as she helped others at her CWJC site when they struggled with classes.
The Dove Endowment helped Akevia reach goals she never thought possible. When she received the Sybil Bentley Dove Award in 2018, she said, “I am a few months away from becoming what and who I was destined to be. God has used my journey to strengthen my faith. Because of these organizations and the wonderful Christian people who have helped and encouraged us, my son will not have to experience food insecurity or homelessness. Generational poverty ended with me because of all of you.”
Akevia is now a third grade math and science teacher and will soon begin graduate school.
