August 6, 2019

In a place torn apart by decades-long conflict, pastors and village leaders are working to finally bring unity.

The Rift Valley is the crucible of Kenya’s tribal conflicts and often the site of confrontations among rival ethnic political groups.

A Prayer Warrior in India

August 2, 2019

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.

Local ministries are reaching out to the abandoned and ignored in the United States with food and community.

Every Friday, World Challenge’s partners in Florida, Sharing Hope, prepare lunches and pack bags of groceries with canned goods, fruit, vegetables, bread and pastries. They also prepare 50 bags of children’s lunches with hot dogs, juice, fruit and other goodies.

God has not forgotten a people living in one of the planet’s harshest environments, largely ignored by the rest of the world.

When refugees come up in conversation, many listeners may think only about the crisis in Syria and the many people who have fled the war-torn Middle East.

Building Wells and Unity

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.

Making a Multi-Generational Church

July 4, 2019

Church leaders in Brazil are looking for ways to build up children and teenagers as vital ministry workers. 

The ministry of Jacob’s Well extends throughout northern Brazil, sharing the gospel alongside helping people get access to the clean water but also teaching them new agricultural practices, hygiene lessons and other community skills.

Reading lessons are one of their programs, meant to combat the high levels of illiteracy in Brazil’s rural areas.
