Stitching a New Story

Rachel Chimits
January 2, 2020

A young woman in India felt her life had effectively come to a close until she met people who were ready to show her Christ’s compassion.

Yahvat* married her husband six years ago. Her family was quite poor, but she was hopeful for her future with this marriage.

However, he neglected her. She hoped that things would improve with time, but instead the problems lingered, and no amount of prayers at the temples or incense or offerings seemed to improve her situation.

World Challenge partners and the church in Eswatini are finding ways to reach those who are in prison with God’s Word and forgiveness.

World Challenge’s partners in Eswatini have begun a special outreach called Potter’s Prison Ministry, believing that God has incredible plans for those who are currently behind bars.

This ministry has seen incredible growth this year.

Believers around the world are gathering together not only to remember the Savior’s birth and his promise of eternal redemption but also to care for the widow and orphan.

In preparation for Christmas, our partners in India hold skits where children in their orphanage, and any from the neighborhood who want to participate, have the chance to act out the Christmas story.

Our Dedication to the Good Work

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.

An Uprising in Lebanon

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.

The Arab Spring exploded in 2011, and it has lingered in the Middle East ever since. Now, though, rumblings of protest are threatening to resurrect the violence that characterized the revolution from several years ago.

From One Kingdom to Another

Tragedy, by every earthly standard, struck one missionary family, but for their church and community, it has become a reminder of legacy and God’s sovereignty.

Brendan and Melissa Perrott both had successful careers and a comfortable home in Edmonton, Canada. The parents of two toddlers, they were the family with the picture-perfect life.

However, Brendan and Melissa felt called to leave everything behind.
