Shireen Soupen is a helper, a loving friend, mother, wife, and woman who loves and serves her surrounding community.
She truly has a servant heart and one we want to celebrate this month. Once a week she helps with a feeding scheme at a local hospital in town assisting patients with lunch and prayer. She also serves regularly in her church and helps her woman’s group, provides drug awareness and hands out Bibles in local schools and so much more. Her “strength and honor is only something I can dream of becoming” says her daughter.
Shireen says: “As a woman, a mother and a wife you sometimes wonder whether what you are doing is enough, is it fulfilling and gratifying. You ask yourself the question am I here only to please my family or is there a greater purpose for my life?
Ephesians 2:10.For we are God’s (own) handiwork (His workmanship) recreated in Christ Jesus (born anew) that we may do those good works which God Predestined (planned beforehand) for us(taking paths which he prepared ahead of time that we should walk in them.
I discovered that it’s only in my serving, irrespective of who it is, that I’m truly blessed. I am fulfilled when I’m able to put a smile on someone else’s face. And hear them say thank you and God bless you.
I’m truly honored to serve the less fortunate and underprivileged through my local church. We go into poor communities and do exciting programmes as well as bless them with hot meals and beanies and gloves to keep them warm during winter. We also feed the school of the deaf on a regular basis. A group of women go into our local hospital every week without fail and make sandwiches and tea and distribute to hundreds of patients awaiting treatment. Currently, I’m doing a programme at our church with a focus on the family, called No Apologies, whereby we are able to go into our local schools and educate young people on the dangers of drugs and issues concerning love and sex. We also embarked on a drive to distribute Bibles to grade seven students in our schools in the community and surrounding areas.
Whatever I do, I do it unto the Lord and my greatest reward is seeing lives impacted and changed for the glory of God.”
Amen, Shireen! Thank you for being a servant to those around you and an inspiration of strength & honour to us all.
Is there a woman who comes to mind when you think of a woman of strength and honour? Someone who displays this in their everyday life whether it be corporate, motherhood, school, or just even when they’re around friends or family. We’d love to feature them on our site and give them a free pencil skirt as a gift of encouragement to keep pursuing their mission.
