A Blessing in Egypt

“In that day Israel will be the third, along with Egypt and Assyria, a blessing in the midst of the earth. For the Lord of Heaven’s Armies will say, “Blessed be Egypt, my people…”

My name is Samira. I live in a village in Egypt. I am 29 years old, a Christian, a mother of 3 beautiful children. I am a widow.

One woman’s miraculous encounter with God planted a sturdy faith in her that would withstand terrible persecution and loss.

Jahnavi’s neighbors brought her to a church that is World Challenge’s partner because she was demon possessed. Her family had ignored the issue, simply ascribing her strange behavior to a spiritual affliction from one of their thousands of gods.

One woman in Kenya finds support through the church and starts helping others who have also experienced loss and rejection.

World Challenge has been dedicated for many years to helping widows, particularly those who are vulnerable to exploitation, cultural stigma or poverty.

Those Hidden in Ireland

World Challenge partners in the Emerald Isle reach out to one mother weighted down by a cancer prognosis and deep worries for her children.

Can people still be deeply caught in poverty if they live in a wealthy, Western nation?

Most would say, “Yes, of course” because we’ve all seen someone beside the road with a cardboard sign who is clearly homeless.

Seeing Blessings in Guatemala

World Challenge partners help widows in Latin America receive back their sight. 

Rosa feels along the brick wall of her kitchen. Only the size of a living room in many Americans’ houses, her home is simple and clean. At least, she hopes it’s clean. She’s swept like always, bumping the broom between the table and chairs’ legs.

Something clatters cross the floor, and she pauses, trying to squint through grainy gloom at whatever’s fallen.

Mercy in the Slum

In Kenya’s grittiest and most impoverished sector, God is bringing incredible change to people’s hearts and lives.

As the sun rises on the eastern part of Kenya’s capital, it brings to light one of the world largest slums: Mathare.

The third largest in Africa, this slum is home to some 500,000 people scraping together a living in grinding poverty.

Compassion’s Light in Kenya

One woman lost everything and turned her loss into blessings for others.

Mathare is the third largest slum in Africa and sixth in the entire world. It is here, though, where God’s love is shining brightly through a lady whom I had the honor of meeting in person.
