    “If I had known how to feed my baby, she wouldn’t have died.”

    This was one of the first testimonies I ever read from a Women of Hope listener, and I was stunned. How did that happen? How could such a seemingly simple thing result in this baby’s death?

    That testimony stayed in my thoughts and has become a powerful reminder...

    Eeva, our regional coordinator in Europe, recently shared this listener story from a 30-year-old woman in Albania:

    "I want to thank you for your ministry to women. I’m one of the fruit of your ministry.

    Praying for Women in Western and Southern Europe and the Nordic Countries

    Peggy's Update
    Today, as I sit in an airport and write to you, I’m thinking of the ladies we are praying for this coming month. Again, I’m so thankful for your faithfulness to be a voice in prayer for women around the world.
     
    On a recent visit to the Nordic countries, several people asked me about the “me too” movement. I am...

    Praying for Women in Central and Eastern Europe

    Many women in Central and Eastern Europe experience the devastating effects of poverty. Domestic violence, divorce, child marriages and other social issues lead people to turn to alcohol, drugs, gambling and the occult in futile attempts to free themselves from their pain and despair. The lack of...

    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. Here, you’ll read something...

    Devotional

    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...
