God’s redemption and transformation of one man who was considered ‘hopeless’ by his neighbors has begun to change his entire village.

Kenya is making headway toward reducing severe poverty in their nation, working steadfastly toward their people have more opportunities. While some are worried that this work might become easily undone, the upward climb has brought great hope to many locals.

World Challenge’s partners in Lithuania are helping families in need find hope and food in the middle of what has been a very challenging season.

The Union of Pentecostal Churches of Lithuania support a feeding center in their city. Particularly in this current season, food aid is extremely important.

Russia, the Virus Year and a Dream

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.

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Russia has reported extraordinarily low mortality rates. A group of doctors, however, have been creating a “memory list” of colleagues’ names who have died from the virus, despite official figures saying otherwise.

From Fear to Freedom

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.

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

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.
