As a child living in Cheshire, England, she regularly attended the Mothers’ Union with her late mother Audrey and experienced firsthand the inspirational support and benefits of bringing women together each week for instruction and unity. After several months of prayer and fasting, Archbishop Dr. Johnson felt lead to unite the women and girls within the church to teach them how to develop their gifts to offer important skills to others. God lead her to two respected and experienced Mothers within the Church – the Hon. Lady Sarah Lwanga Tusubira from Uganda, and the Hon. Mary Roshel Amwayi from Kenya to lead the movement.
Vision – Our vision is to empower women of noble character to diligently care for their families with kindness, confidence, and wisdom by exemplifying the characteristics found in Proverbs 31. We invigorate women and girls by teaching essential skills that will strengthen communities across the world by using seven main disciplines – Education, Economy, Equipment, Exchange, Energy, Exercise and Employment.
Mission – We aim to show our Christian faith by the metamorphosis of communities worldwide, through the empowerment of women as they learn to walk confidently through life as inspirational role models and messengers of loving light.
Values – Each member across the world subscribes to the same values:
1. We are firmly rooted in the principles of Proverbs 31 and the teachings of Jesus Christ
2. We work together with mutual respect and as partners throughout the community, nation, and world.
3. Our governance, leadership and programs are driven by and undertaken through members within their own communities worldwide.
4. We are inclusive and work with people of all faiths and none.
Our aims and objectives are: – 1. To encourage women in their role and responsibility to develop the faith of their children
2. To maintain a worldwide fellowship of Christians united in prayer, worship, and service
3. To promote positive and healthy conditions in society favorable to stable family life and the protection of children, elders, the disabled and disenfranchised, the homeless, family pets and livestock.
4. To help those whose family life has met with adversity, loss, and unexpected displacement
5. To promote and support married life

CHAPLAIN DIEGO DIAZ OFFERS WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT
This Pandemic and unrest in the world have taken a major toll on all of us. And when I say all of us, I mean Believers as well as non-believers alike. My Dear Brethren at no time has our faith’s been tested more than at this period of time. For many of us each day has been an extreme struggle. We find ourselves fighting for the day to day essentials for ourselves and families. How many of our families and friends have we lost to this pandemic that has gripped our planet and how many are suffering this day fighting this illness and not able to get adequate healthcare or better yet afford it. I have read much of your testimonies and the work that is being done by the various members of our clergy under these most trying of circumstances is truly remarkable and extraordinary. Truly the hand of Our Almighty God is guiding you all and to Him goes all the praise and glory, and ultimate victory.
During this period, I have meditated on the Lord to find answers as I am sure we all have done. After all, we are human; and as servants of Christ we are prone to be tested. As when Peter saw Christ walking the waters in the storm, left the boat and walked toward Him; but because of all the turbulence around him became afraid, lost faith, took his eye off Our God and nearly drowned in the process. Isn’t that what some of us are experiencing now or have gone through at one time or another? Well the Lord guided me to this passage, as was suggested by Dr. Charles F. Stanley an Evangelist and highly respected theologian in whom I hold in high regard. Joshua Chapter 1 vs 5-9. These verses deal with “Courage” as Joshua was being readied to lead the Israelites to The Lord’s Promised Land. Please consider and focus with me verse 9. “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of Good Courage; do not be afraid, nor dismayed -For the Lord, your God is with you wherever you go.”
All God’s Blessings to you all.
Your Brother in Christ: Diego Diaz – Chaplain to The House of Bishops and Member of The IFCC shield no.4496 – Private Secretary to Archbishop Dr. Christine Mercy Johnson – Matriarch of Worldwide Anglican Church and Servant to The Patriarch; His Esteem Eminence Christopher T. Lwanga
