I am Beatrice Omowumi Yesufu, Founder of the highly esteemed Christian Widows Widowers Empowered Organization. A Pastor of a RCCG parish in Nigeria.
I am acquired with a Bsc Ed in Mathematics from Lagos state University Ojo Lagos. I come from Oro Ago in Ifelodun Local Government Area of Kwara State. I was happily married to Late Moses Akahome Yesufu. Tragedy struck in the form of devastating Illness which led to his untimely death eight years ago, leaving me with three amazing children.
Throughout the tumultuous journey of my widowhood, God has shown his faithfulness, being so gracious to me and my family in this last eight years. Despite this, as the years went by, I found myself victim to loneliness and depression. This prompted me to search for a way to seek companionship in other women who are suffering from the situation I found myself in.
With this in mind, I searched for an organization that addressed my situation, but unfortunately there are no widow organizations in Nigeria. Undeterred, I joined an international widow groups which helped me gain the strength I needed to walk down this lonely road. With the help of the holy spirit my spiritual understanding was opened, and I saw the need to reach out to other young widows in Nigeria who found themselves in my previous dilemma.
This inspiration birthed the idea of The Christian Widows Widower Empowered support group Nigeria. A group of young widows finding strength in God to overcome the trials and tribulations as they go through their journey. An online and offline support group.
My experiences participating in the International groups opened my mind to the understanding that healing is possible if we desire it, no one bargains to be a widow and no one enjoys it but regardless we find ourselves in it. We must come to terms with this and learn to see what God has in store for our lives.
Its okay to want to be healed, but healing is a gradual process on this journey. In my case, I’m order to be healed and encourage others to heal, I must ensure that I prioritize the methods to achieve the aim of total well being for every widow, which revolves round the total human well being, these are:
-Spiritually well being,
-Social well being,
-Economical well being,
-Mental well being,
-Behavioral well being.
-Environmental well being
-Emotional well being
