Brazil’s drought-stricken regions are experiencing new life through the hard work of World Challenge’s partner.

A lack of water affects everything in a community from basic health and sanitation to education and employment.

Clean water, as a basic human need, is foundational to building healthy communities. Meeting the physical need for water opens doors for people to receive what they thirst for most: living water.

Many young, educated Albanians leave their homeland in search of a better life, and Vera intended to be no different until she met God.

Concern for the young people and future of Burundi is what drives one young man, a World Challenge scholarship student at Summit.

I am from Bujumbura, the capital city* of Burundi in East Africa.

Raised in a non-Christian family, I started drinking when I was 6 years old. It’s not uncommon for people to start drinking at an early age with the traditions in our community.

“And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not lose heart.” Galatians 6:9 NKJV

The village would remind most of us of a maze, but one with mud walls as high as a man’s head. Only these walls are part of people’s homes.

During the heavy seasonal rains, the houses would erode to expose straw and sticks used to reinforce the mud. The walkways become shin-deep sludge, and in the doorways, children poke out their heads to watch the rain.

God’s answer to the hidden desire of one Roma woman’s heart.

The Roma community in Europe is often classified as the most economically depressed. Unemployment, untreated medical issues and unforgiving living conditions are constant problems they must face. 

These are not the only obstacles for members of the community. Lack of education and illiteracy is another, particularly for those who have aged out of the school system.

Isiolo is the scene of surprising and hopeful conflict. 

The small town north of Kenya’s capital, Nairobi, is starting to become a tourist destination. It recently connected to two game reserves in the area, and its airport is now offering international flights.

As turmoil grips a country, a new generation is rising up to lead.

The news is peppered with articles about government attacks on protestors and church leaders in Nicaragua. Reading all this, many might feel overwhelmed by the forces of evil, unrest and poverty in this small Central American country.

Fortunately, God is moving his people to reach those who are lost and hurting.
