MotherWise International

In 1981, Denise Glenn would have never imagined that God would take the Bible study she began teaching to five ladies and spread it throughout the world. But today, that is just what He is doing!  Since 2000, when the MotherWise Prayer Network began praying for the nations of the world to come to know Christ, God has swung wide doors of opportunity for this ministry to reach many of those nations.

As God began to open doors for MotherWise and FatherWise around the world, David and Denise Glenn, ministry founders, realized that an umbrella organization was needed to include MotherWise, FatherWise, the Prayer Network and whatever else God may continue to unfold. Kardo International Ministries was founded to be that umbrella as a 501 (3) C non-profit organization.  In amazing ways, God has provided the people and the financial resources for translations in: English, Spanish, Mandarin, German, Russian, Korean, Mongolian, Telugu (India), Kiswahili, Vietnamese, Tagalog (Philippines), and Indonesian. Currently translations are in progress for Polish, with French, and Romanian in early stages of consideration.

God has also shown us many countries that can use either English or translations other than their national language due to occupation of their country by other nations. For example: the Russian translation can be used in Ukraine because Russian was taught in the Ukrainian schools during the Russian occupation of Ukraine and English can be used in Kenya due to their British cultural heritage.

Currently, MotherWise has offices with staff and points of distribution in the following:

MotherWise in Kenya - MotherWise ministry is a ministry whose purpose is to: Embrace, Educate, and Encourage mothers to fulfill God’s purpose in their lives. The ministry was first introduced to Kenya in October, 2005. Two seminars were held with 150 ladies reached. Out of these two meetings 20 groups were formed. In June, 2006, a big launch was done by Denise Glenn, the author and the founder of MotherWise, who was the main speaker. The meetings were held in the cities of Nairobi, Nakuru and Kisumu, Kenya, respectively. 420 ladies, pastors’ wives and women leaders attended the seminars. Over 33 different churches were represented. Out of these, 35 groups were formed. These groups have kept increasing. In 2007, two more seminars were held in Eldoret and Mombasa. Earlier this year, David and Denise returned to Kenya to launch Freedom for Mothers and Wisdom for Fathers. Out of these, many new groups have emerged and are in session. Currently we have over 65 groups in Kenya.

MotherWise Materials Used for the Poor:
The materials are being used by Compassion International (CI) to reach out to the mothers in the Child Survivor Program. Fifteen groups have been formed by CI. The following is a report from a project director in Indonesia at Compassion International’s Child Survivor Program (a program to minister to young mothers with preschool children).

Greetings from East Indonesia! We are glad that MotherWise has existed and blessed the mothers in our projects!Kindly inform you that we have 19 projects of Child Survival Program (CSP) in East Indonesia, spread from North Sulawesi to Papua. Each project has 45 to 55 beneficiaries, and each beneficiary is counted as mother-child unit. These mother-child units are the neediest people in their community. They have lack of education, knowledge and resources. About 85% of the projects are using MotherWise, even though not all of beneficiaries have the book and bring it home. Most of all use it as the guidance for Bible study at the group activities. The mothers will sit as a small group, discuss the topic and the questions as a group. Each of them has opportunity to share and talk about their experiences, thoughts and ideas. The implementers of CSP have testified that it makes the mothers become more open each other. They are supporting their peers in prayer and better in the relationship among them and in their own family. In the future, we have expectancy that MotherWise will bless more the mothers in East Indonesia, especially through our projects. May the mothers and all their families feel the blessings of God more by using MotherWise. Thank you and may God bless you all!  You can help us provide resources for our partnership with Compassion International by donating to Kardo. One small group kit, containing the materials in the appropriate language costs less than $200. You can make an incredible impact on these precious mothers and their children!

Nuestra Visión

Nuestro objetivo es de inspirar a las madres a profesar la fe en Jesucristo, y entregarles a nuestros hijos la bendición de poder comunicar su fe eficazmente. Además queremos que profundicen en su caminar con Jesucristo a través de un estudio bíblico intensivo y poder proveerles información sobre las habilidades que como mamá deben tener, las cuáles les darán las herramientas para fortalecer a sus hijos y no para debilitarlos. Creemos que ha llegado el momento de lanzar un programa de mayor alcance para las madres de América.

Nunca antes en la historia de América había habido niños más necesitados de contar con padres fuertes, ni tampoco había habido madres más desesperadas en busca de respuestas.

"Porque si callas absolutamenete en este tiempo, respiro y liberación vendrá de alguna otra parte...Y quién sabe si para esta hora has llegado al reino?" (Ester 4.14)

Nuestra Misión

Nuestro Ministerio tiene una misión global de acoger, educar y animar familias en una entrega absoluta y confianza total en Cristo. Somos una comunidad de creyentes que trabajamos en red para alcanzar los corazones de familias del mundo a través de estudios bíblicos y una red de oración mundial de intercesión.
