  • A Sense of Place and Belonging

    Education, Issues Women Face

    Our focus this month is on praying for refugees, and the prayer need is urgent: 25.4 million refugees. That’s 25.4 million people (over half of them under 18) who have been forced to flee from their homes. How can we begin to understand the suffering, pain, challenge and despair that they feel? 
     
    It helps to have a clear...

  • Men are Listening Too!

    Testimonies
    One of the great things about mass media is that it can go anywhere and be heard by anyone. So, while TWR Women of Hope is a ministry specifically for women, there is nothing stopping anyone from listening to the broadcasts … including men! And this does happen. It is not uncommon that we hear from men who are also listening and finding...
  • Showing Christ's Love to Newcomers

    June 7, 2019 By Dr. Peggy Banks

    Recently I was sitting with a group of women leaders discussing gratitude. When was the last time you thought about gratitude? I mean really thought about the things that you are grateful for every day. If I asked you to make a gratitude list, what would be on that list? How long would it take you to write out that list?

    There have been times...

  • Speaking Hope to Refugees

    May 31, 2019 By the TWR Women of Hope Ministry Team

    Many times, God answers our prayers in ways we never expected. For years, thousands of TWR Women of Hope intercessors prayed that isolated women in the Arab world, Central Asia and North Africa would have the opportunity to hear of God’s love for them. Now, millions of these women have left the isolation they once faced in their home...

  • A Cry for Help: Worse than an Animal

    May 24, 2019 By the TWR Women of Hope Ministry Team

    I’m twice divorced at 27. Each marriage was forced, the first by my parents when I was only 14 to a drunkard of a man 40 years older than me. He had children from his prior marriage and wanted none from me, but that did not stop him from raping me whenever he wanted. I was powerless to stop him, and although his family had to carry me to...

  • Praying for Mothers

    May 17, 2019 By the TWR Women of Hope Ministry Team

    Mothers hold the future in their hands. A substantial portion of their lives is spent nurturing future teachers, doctors, pastors, business owners, politicians and citizens pursuing countless other occupations. In addition, most of their sons will become husbands and fathers, and many of their daughters will become wives and mothers.

    Mothers...

    Devotional

    Every May, people preach sermons, write blogs and share about the inspiration of mothers. It’s the month we set aside a Sunday to celebrate the very special place mothers have in our hearts. It’s important to note that the term mother is bigger than our biological parent because the sad truth is that some of our birth mothers...

    Let Her Know

    May 3, 2019 By Dr. Peggy Banks


    Today I write to you from Ukraine while waiting for my flight to Romania. I’m reminded again what a joy it is to share my thoughts and love with you each month in this prayer letter. As I write this letter, I think of the apostle Paul writing to the Ephesians ( Ephesians 1:15-18 ).

    Paul continued to give thanks for the Ephesians because of...

  • Holding the Pieces Together

    April 26, 2019 By the TWR Women of Hope Ministry Team

    The Silk Road once led traders across Central Asia, bearing riches and exotic good abroad. Today, the men of the “stans” (Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan) take themselves abroad, to look for work in Russia. Meanwhile, the women are left to hold the pieces together, raising children and caring for aging...
