    Around the world, the hope of Jesus is changing lives. Women who have heard the gospel truth from the Women of Hope program are finding freedom and healing.

    Bahar’s* story is all too familiar but no less horrifying than those of so many women forced into marriage. Her father abused her, and then when she became older, he forced her to marry an older man.

    “My husband was an alcoholic. He was not working, and I had to work and bring money home,” Bahar told the TWR Women of Hope team....

    “Christ alone can bring lasting peace – peace with God – peace among men and nations – and peace within our hearts.” Billy Graham

    In days of isolation, little communication with extended family and new ways to do our work, it can be hard to find our peace. Yet the Bible tells us that there is a peace available to us...

    Our praise and worship of God draws us into greater intimacy with him. God calls us to quiet ourselves to seek him in a deeper way. He asks us to release our control and let him take the lead so we can discover what is real, stable and foundational.

    We have seen God doing wonders and answering our prayers. Some of our supplications and petitions seem so urgent, but the One who never sleeps nor slumbers watches over us day and night and faithfully pays attention to our cries.

    It does not take any effort to praise the Lord when we think about what he has done for us. Would that we had 10,000...

    2020 has looked very different than what we expected on January 1. As we grieve all that has changed, it can be hard to remember to be thankful.
