MFM Woolwich Women Foundation
The MFM Women Foundation was officially inaugurated in September 2006, by the General Overseer of MFM Worldwide, Dr. D.K. This body was officially inaugurated in The Netherlands in 2010 by Pastor (Mrs) Shade Olukoya. The authorities of MFM strongly believe that women have a unique role to play in the body of Christ because God has specially endowed them for specific assignments, particularly at this end-time.
The administration of the Women Foundation runs horizontally through the MFM Regions flowing into the MFM Branches worldwide; to touch the lives of all MFM women through spiritual awareness and enlightenment. Each MFM Branch worldwide has a mandate to have a highly functional and vibrant Women Foundation Department available to all women that are fully committed members of MFM Ministries.
The Women Foundation is geared to train and empower all women with skills in their specific areas, in order to fulfil their family obligations as help mate to their husbands. Equally, the women are spiritually strengthened through seminars, workshops and prayer sessions organized regularly.
Our goal primarily is to bring out the best in our women to enable them to be fulfilled as children of God, family keepers and worthwhile income earners. Also, we aim to raise women leaders that will distinguish themselves honourably always.

LET THE BEAUTY OF JESUS BE SEEN IN ME
Let the beauty of Jesus be seen in me,
All His wonderful passion and purity.
Oh, thou Spirit divine, all my nature refine
Till the beauty of Jesus be seen in me.
When your burden is heavy and hard to bear
When your neighbours refuse all your load to share
When you’re feeling so blue, Don’t know just what to do
Let the beauty of Jesus be seen in you.
When somebody has been so unkind to you,
Some word spoken that pierces you through and through.
Think how He was beguiled, spat upon and reviled,
Let the beauty of Jesus be seen in you
From the dawn of the morning till close of day,
In example in deeds and in all you say,
Lay your gifts at His feet, ever strive to keep sweet
Let the beauty of Jesus be seen in you.
