Encouraging women

During our leadership visit, Just Hope Founder Karen Bruton and Ashley Turner, wife of Just Hope President Ben Turner, spoke to a special women’s conference held primarily for the Baptist Pastors Wives Association of Sierra Leone, a group of about 50 women who traveled to Lunsar from all over the country. The conference theme was “Encouraging Women,” and it most definitely did that. Employees and locals liked seeing that we all have a woman boss! That alone spoke volumes about our belief in the ability of women to lead their communities.
