Last year about this time, I launched the Invisible Army Project, a project devoted to showcasing how God is working through women leaders around the globe. Unfortunately, I quickly realized that I would need to put the project on hiatus so I could finish the manuscript for my first book, Dare Mighty Things. By the time I had signed the contract for DMT, I had a grand total of four months to complete a 70,000 word manuscript. Since I am the sole care provider for a precocious four-year-old and a feisty, trouble-making two-year-old, something had to give, and it had to be the project.
Now, the book is done and I am happy to announce the relaunch of the Invisible Army Project. This year, I’m going to do things a little different. Rather than posting a new interview every day, I’ll be posting one interview each week on Thursdays. Each interview will be focused around 4-5 key questions. As you can see from earlier interviews (which I’ve transferred to this site), the interviews were much, much more in-depth. While I’d love to do that for each and every female leader (because their work deserves it), the shortest blog posts are the sweetest. I’ll be sure to link you up so you can find out much more about these women on your own. If you’re interested in finding women who work in a particular area, just follow the tag cloud over to the right.
My goal is to find at least one woman from every state in the United States, and one woman from each continent (except, probably, Antarctica—if you do happen to know a Christian woman leading in Antarctica, contact me immediately!). So far, here are the states and countries I’ve covered or will cover soon:
Tomorrow, we kick things off with Emily Chengo, the African director for the African Leadership and Reconciliation Ministries (ALARM). Emily oversees the work of ALARM in six countries: Kenya, Burundi, Sudan, South Sudan, Uganda, Rwanda, and the Congo. Until then, you can read more about the project here.
