    For many of us, we can not imagine the terrors which refugee women face in their home countries and in the countries they flee to. Through the Women of Hope radio program, TWR Women of Hope is bring hope and the love of Jesus into the lives of refugee women. A listener in a refugee camp in Tanzania shared the following story:

    “Dear ladies, thank you for the Women of Hope radio program. I am a refugee and live in the Nyarugusu camp. I am full of bitterness and anger when I remember what the Congo rebel soldiers did to me. They invaded my house and raped me right in front of my children. My husband had run away to the forest to hide. We then ran to Tanzania to save our lives. Although I do not know the faces of those who abused me, I am still angry at them. Your program has shown me that I need to forgive them. I have decided to forgive. Please pray for me.”

    Please pray for this listener as she heals from the trauma which she has faced. Praise God that she is finding hope in him. Pray also for her husband and children as they heal. Pray that they too would find hope in Christ.
