Comfort The Downtrodden in North Africa

May 8

After the mother of a 17-year-old girl refused a young man’s proposal to her daughter, he raped the girl in revenge. He was sentenced to prison, and the young woman’s family beat her repeatedly, a common practice in a culture in which the girl is often blamed in instances of sexual violence. She fled to a native ministry’s shelter and spent months suffering from intense hopelessness. Finally, she began to open up to the workers, who taught her about God. Now, she knows how to pray and has learned how to discuss her emotions. Donations of $25 or $50 help Christian workers minister to hurting people. Pray for native missionaries as they comfort the lost.
