    Praying for Women in Central and Eastern Europe

    Many women in Central and Eastern Europe experience the devastating effects of poverty.

The lack of...

    Testimonies

    The news we most often hear about Central Asia, the Middle East and North Africa is not good … not at all. There are conflicts and horrific scenarios flashed across our news outlets much of the time. It’s very easy to become discouraged and feel as though there is nothing much one person can do.

    Praying for Women in Central Asia, the Middle East and North Africa

    CAMENA is the shorthand name used by TWR for the region comprising Central Asia, the Middle East and North Africa. In this area of the world, becoming a Christian is sometimes illegal. This may include being arrested, interrogated or imprisoned. Many have been pushed out of...

    The power of a well-spoken word of encouragement can’t be measured. Maybe you’ve experienced this yourself. Have you been the recipient of a kind word or gesture at a time when you needed it most? How did that help you press on through difficult times? Or perhaps you had the double blessing of being that encouraging person for...

    Testimonies

    Fadila* had already waited seven years to marry the man she loved. They were engaged young, while he was still in school. Although jobs are hard to come by in their North African country, culturally it’s expected that the man will have a steady job that provides a good wage before marriage. It’s also customary for a couple’s...

    Peggy's Update

    Ephesians 6:10-12 says:

    "Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil...

    Testimonies

    Marriages are fragile and all too easy to break. Our loved ones fail us constantly, but Jesus never fails to hear the prayers of his church. Women in every country are going through the unfortunately familiar pain of failing marriages, and many are finding their refuge in TWR Women of Hope ministries.

    “After listening to your Women of Hope...

    Praying for Women in West and Central Africa

    West and Central African countries are rich with diamonds, gold, oil, uranium and other minerals, but the people are among the world’s poorest. The abundance of natural resources often becomes a curse rather than a blessing to the local people. The misuse of these resources results in...

    Issues Women Face, Testimonies

    This month as we pray for the women in East Africa , we are confronted with the painful and traumatic circumstances they face. We learn this is one of the poorest regions in the world and that women live in poverty, political unrest and economic instability. They share common challenges such as illiteracy, forced marriages, polygamy and domestic...
