Caribbean Baptist Women’s Union (CBWU)

    President’s Message





    Karlene Edwards-Warrick - Trinidad and Tobago

    My dear sisters, I greet you in the all-powerful name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. As we navigate this incredibly challenging and unprecedented time in our history, I urge all of you, the women of the Caribbean Baptist Women’s Union to be prayerful, proactive, pliable and prompt in your decision making. I encourage you to look outward for every opportunity for ministry as there are many persons who are in need and without Hope. While I am aware that our resources may be limited during this time of crisis, I call on you to exercise the faith of the widow of Zarephath because it is in giving that we will receive and we will witness God’s miraculous provision.

    May God continue to lead the CBWU as we fulfil God’s great work in this Caribbean region. My officers and I look forward to your continued support to the CBWU in the next five years as we foster and celebrate unity in Christ and promote fellowship among Baptist Women in the Caribbean and worldwide.
