Our Dedication to the Good Work

Gary Wilkerson
December 16, 2019

I’ve been doing this for a long time. I’ve seen life and death hang in the balance in countries that are enduring civil war, in communities where families are starving and in cities where little children are living underground in sewers. If it were not for the Lord—his mighty power and outstretched hand of love and mercy—I would have given up in despair long ago. But I’m still trusting in faith that, through Jesus Christ, we will continue to see lives transformed.

World Challenge’s partners are caught in the middle of the Middle East’s most current uprising, but they are holding on to God’s promises to work in the midst of their troubles.

He has served God for more than 15 years in his village, and his home has become a community center and church where people from the village gather.

Going from Victim to Victor in Christ

Olive Heywood
December 3, 2019

One young woman’s harsh childhood and rocky path in adulthood nearly claimed her life until Christ intervened to heal her broken heart.

My name is Olive.

When I was 7 years old, my parents separated. My father left for South Africa, and he refused to allow me to visit him. It would be three years before he finally invited me to see him. I was excited and hopeful that this marked a turn for our family, but the trip turned into a nightmare.

Escaping a Demonic Curse

November 26, 2019

God gave one woman and her family freedom from a curse that was consuming them with fear and conflict.

A New Home and Life in Moldova

Rachel Chimits
November 18, 2019

In one of Europe’s poorest countries, one young man finally found a safe home and also humanity’s Savior.

The first thing you will notice about a Moldovan orphanage is its silence.

Children in these institutions are often not allowed outside, forced to lay in their cots and ignored by workers who only address their most basic needs.
