  • 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.

    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...

  • It's Good Friday

    April 19, 2019 By the TWR Canada Women's Ministry Team

    It’s Good Friday, a day we pause to reflect on that pivotal moment in history when God’s wrath met with his great mercy through the suffering of Christ on the cross. It’s a day of great sadness but also of great rejoicing. We need to see both sides to fully appreciate what Christ’s death means to us: we see our sin that...

    Testimonies

    A beautiful home, nice cars, all the material markers of a successful Iranian family – Roya* felt that she and her husband had finally made it.

    But then disaster struck when her husband unexpectedly lost his lucrative job and there were no savings to fall back on. They were left bankrupt and lost their lovely home. Almost all their...

    “So Jesus again said to them, ‘Truly, truly, I say to you,
    I am the door of the sheep.’”   John 10:7 (ESV)

    Over the past three years, it has been the greatest blessing for me to visit our teams around the world. When I travel, I love to take photos of unique doors. However different they are, they all lead somewhere....

  • The Good News of the Gospel

    March 29, 2019 By the TWR Women of Hope Ministry Team

    What is the gospel? The gospel is the “good news” from God that “Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures” (1 Cor. 15:1-4). The gospel is not merely about Jesus Christ. He is the gospel!

    Why did Jesus come to earth...
