CBE Endorsement: My contact with CBE is an answered prayer. God has given me people whom I can journey with in my calling. Biblical equality between men and women is really the heart of the Christian message. It has been very refreshing to read the works and be in contact with people who work for biblical equality.
CBE is doing marvelous work in standing for biblical equity around the world. This is a very important call due to inequalities which persist in the world today. Inequalities are a major source for human suffering. The work of CBE is a great support to my ministry.
Emily Onyango serves on CBE’s Board of Reference.
