There are many broken and hurting families in Asia. Some fathers try to drown their hardships in alcohol, while some mothers work as prostitutes in desperation to provide for their children. Poverty-stricken homes and runaway kids are not hard to find, and the reality verifies there is no end to the struggle and hardships many families face today.
GFA-supported workers, pastors and Sisters of Compassion are helping these families. Whether it's by counseling men to help them move past their addictions, giving women the tools and skills they need to start a new trade or helping a family get back on its feet with a few chickens or goats, these brothers and sisters are living proof of God's love for them.
Many families, for the first time in their lives, learn about God's love. Through this experience, they discover their lives have true meaning and hope for restoration. Let us be part of praying for these families too. Please pray the Lord will heal these broken families and use our brothers and sisters to minister peace and hope into their lives.
