From Fear to Freedom

Rachel Chimits
December 22, 2020

In Bosnia, one Roma boy who knew little else except anxiety and rejection began to experience God's love and freedom.

Thousands upon thousands of Roma people live in Bosnia-Herzegovina, but they are the invisible population.

The government estimates that anywhere between 10,000 and 60,000 Roma are unregistered, which makes accessing schools, hospitals and public resources where they might otherwise receive the help they need far more difficult.

Christ’s Blood Shed in Love

God’s sacrifice to save his people reaches the hearts of the lost in some of the most unexpected places, in this case through a wedding party.

In Central Asia, there is a story about a weaver who imprudently fell in love with a princess, but then many great loves seem ill advised to those on the outside.

An Opportunity for Education

Our partners in some of the most restrictive Asian countries are working to help children in remote villages be able to go to school and connect their families with the church.

Education can make all the difference in helping a family break the cycle of poverty, especially in Asia where a high emphasis is placed on children caring for their elderly parents.

From Desperate to Daring Blessing

One Roma lady and her family in Albania went from crippled by poverty to helping their neighbors survive the economic downturn.

Daily living for a Roma woman is a seemingly endless gauntlet of obstacles and challenges. One dear Roma lady who is involved in our team is Hena. Her name means “the moon,” but her life has not been that bright.

Feeding the Children of Ireland

December 8, 2020

World Challenge’s partners on the Emerald Isle are working to help the children of low income families have a warm meal as they learn more about their true Savior.

In September, I was in prayer about what direction to take for Feed Cork, whether to develop a social enterprise to help fund our efforts or to grow our community outreach.

Around the World: Volume Seven

In this episode of around the world, 90% of the population of Burundi heard the Gospel amid COVID-19 precautions, a widow experiences the delivering power of God as her granddaughter is freed from a demon, and a fatherless teenager finds freedom from addiction in Swaziland. These are just a small sampling of what God is doing through your partnership with World Challenge.

A Garden of God’s Word

Rachel Chimits
December 3, 2020

One woman decided that if God had changed her heart, he could change her life and her community’s life, and she set out to see it happen.

Edang was doing pretty well for herself. She worked for the nearby zoo and had been there for 14 years. The tourist trade in the Philippines made for lively business, and who doesn’t love seeing animals?

Learning How to Love and Be Loved

Rachel Chimits
November 24, 2020

God is slowly redeeming and healing one young man’s life after it spun out of control and left him aching for true connection.

Our partners in Eswatini run a Teen Challenge center that helps many of the country’s impoverished and troubled youth and young adults find the transforming power of Christ while providing them a safe haven where they can heal from addictions and abuse.
