Lokuda’s Story

Lokuda was a newborn when we found him shackled to the prison floor alongside his mother and his two small siblings. Lokuda’s mother had been accused of killing her husband. No one bothered to ask how many times he’d beaten, raped, or even thrown her out into the elements with her [their] children so that he could […]

Special One Time Offer!

Normally, we envision trauma through a lens of someone experiencing war, and that is certainly one form of real trauma.  Just writing that makes me laugh, as I recently read this G.K. Chesterton quote, “Marriage is an adventure, like going to war.” I certainly know that living with me can be traumatic at times! In […]

Celebrating 6 Impossible Things Before Breakfast in 2017 …

“Alice laughed: ‘There’s no use trying,’ she said; ‘one can’t believe impossible things.’ ‘I daresay you haven’t had much practice,’ said the Queen. ‘When I was younger, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.'”  Alice in Wonderland. Alice in Wonderland is a […]

Our Map of the World

At first glance of the below map, you might think, “I’ve seen this before.” And you’d be right; we have used a version of this map before—illustrating all the places where MWP works or has branches. THIS MAP of our WORLD, however, shows not only WHERE we work but also WHO’S equipping the work through prayer and finances—that’d be YOU! All the red markers represent home-sites for MWP; […]

MWP Frees 15-Year-Old Girl from Prison

As I sat on the long plane ride to Africa recently, the woman sitting next to me and I made small talk. The usual, “Where’d you start your journey? Where’s your final destination? Kids, grandkids, ponies…” When she asked me the “What do you do?” question, I paused for a blip; it’s always so hard […]

Love Without Hesitation by Guest Blogger Catherine Huang

Guest Blog by Catherine Huang, MWP Asian Coordinator Recently, I’ve been praying and meditating a lot upon the vastness of God’s love. There is one scripture that keeps coming to my mind. “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8) When Jesus walked to the […]

Dear Papa

“Dear Papa, this is your beloved daughter Faiza. I miss you so very much, yet my baby has come, and I am so very, very happy here in Uganda. You have a beautiful granddaughter.” Sitting with Faiza is like sitting beside a waterfall. Your eyes are drawn to the bubbles and boils, your ears perk at […]

Petr Jasek Set Free!

When I see this photo of Petr—taken while still in prison—I see a Free Man. I see a man of kindred spirit with the Apostle Paul—a man who surely experienced an ounce or two of suffering. It seems either of these men could have written the words Paul penned in Colossians 1, “Now I rejoice […]
