I will never grow tired of the opportunity to visit in villages and meet the women who are regular listeners of  “Women Of Hope”.  Their faces radiate the joy of their hearts.

In the west, our contentment is so often dependent on having what makes us comfortable, our courage is dependent on our perception of our own strength and ability and our confidence lies in our own plans.  We are so blessed and have been given so much that few of us really understand what it is to be in want and to struggle amid unending pain and poverty to just survive.

When I listen to the stories of women who have nothing and yet are filled with hope and peace, I am constantly amazed.  In a very poor village, 30 ladies have formed a listener group around the broadcast. Led by a very vibrant young lady along with her mother and sister, they love to sing and learn together.  As it was a work day morning, many were out in the fields so I didn’t get to meet all of them, mainly the older ladies and the mothers of young children.  It was very evident that the best way to improve the life of a child is to reach the mothers.

We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure.
