Our partners in Asia are working together to make sure that children have access to educational opportunities as part of loving their communities.

During the height of the pandemic in Asia, some children approached World Challenge’s partners and told them, We want to keep learning. Our schools are closed, and we do not have books. We’re bored staying at home.”

Our partners live in a nation well acquainted with hard work and unrelentingly tough circumstances, but they are also seeing God’s grace and provision in miraculous ways.

The Great Physician came to heal the sick, and he continues to do his powerful work in the United States’ prisons.

One of World Challenge’s partners in the United States, a husband and wife team, have a ministry in the prisons reaching out to inmates with the gospel. Sadly, COVID-19 restrictions have kept Chaplain Mario and Barbara from being able to enter the facilities the last few months.

One believer received the strangest urge from the Spirit and witnessed a little miracle when he obeyed this mysterious call.

The heart of the church and their discipleship movement is to always keep your eyes open for people in need around you, always look for God’s hand on people and listen to his voice as you interact with others.

In Kenya, our partners are working to support families who have children with special needs and who have been affected by the COVID lockdowns.

Being the parent of a special needs child is a daily challenge, but in Kenya while many facilities are closed and resources are limited thanks to COVID, it can feel overwhelming some days.
