20 years later, Lori Apon, founder and Executive Director of Perspective Ministries, passionately shares her experience as a widow with others, leading them to discover that God delights in fulfilling all His promises to those who no longer have a husband or father. Through helpful resources, support groups, Perspective Ministries meets widows in their time of need while also helping communities and churches care for the widow and her fatherless children in ways that are meaningful to them.
