Believers in a small village of 33 families in the Middle East, most of whom came to Christ through the Women of Hope program, meet weekly. They listen to the program, study the Bible, worship, and pray together. In another country, several women refugees live together in an apartment rented for them by a Project Hannah prayer group made up of Afghan, German, Iraqi, Iranian, Syrian, Swedish, and Turkish women. Prayer groups in refugee camps, slums, and isolated villages meet for worship because there is no church in their area.
Women who are beaten or abandoned by their husbands, or they are treated as slaves by their husband’s family, have found salvation through Jesus Christ. They find strength to make it through each day with the help of the Women of Hope program and Project Hannah prayer groups. Some have given their lives to Christ knowing that family members may kill them for doing so.
Husbands, fathers, village chiefs, pastors, prisoners, and other men have testified that the Women of Hope program helps them face daily problems and helps them be better men in their families and communities. Communities have asked Project Hannah groups to teach skills to the poor and prisoners.
God is transforming the attitudes and hearts of women around the globe. As they allow the Holy Spirit to empower them, they speak up for those who are mistreated. They share what little they have with those who are suffering.
All of these things are done in God’s name and through the power of prayer. Give praise and thanksgiving to our great God!
“I will praise you, O Lord, among the nations; I will sing of you among the peoples. For great is your love, reaching to the heavens; your faithfulness reaches to the skies. Be exalted, O God, above the heavens; let your glory be over all the earth” (Psalm 57:9-11).
