For Autumn Nims, “Missions is a lifestyle, not a one-time event.” Because women wiped her tears, she values each opportunity to wipe the tears (and help other women learn how to wipe the tears) of hurting women who are serving as missionaries in various parts of the world.
Autumn holds credentials in the Church of God and studied pastoral ministry and Christian leadership at Lee University. She has served in many ministry roles in the body of Christ, including church ministry. She finds great satisfaction as a licensed personal coach and church consultant.
Her favorite verse, and the one she holds onto as both an instruction and a promise, is, “Be still and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations; I will be exalted in the earth” (Psalm 46:10)
God is using Beth Weedor as one instrument to redeem girls in Liberia. A Liberian and former Muslim, she stands in opposition to this culture where women are devalued, abused, mutilated, and rejected.
Beth has started a ministry to girls called Petals of Hope. Petals of Hope will operate safe houses where girls rescued from sex trafficking can live. The girls will blossom as they are rescued, nurtured, and educated. She envisions them becoming beautiful blossoming flowers with hope for a better future.
