Hope Restored to Widow Supporting Grandchildren

[210] prayers in [16] nations have been posted for Ruth.

The widow of a man who was killed because of his faith is praising the Lord today. After her husband was killed, Ruth thought she would die herself. “He was my source of everything,” she said. Ruth, who supports her grandchildren, said the whole family was under extreme stress. With support from VOM, however, the family has been restored to hope and health. They credit their restoration to God’s help. “I am not complaining now,” Ruth said. “All I do is praise the Lord and share the testimony with the people around me.” Pray for Ruth as well as her grandchildren, who attend school.
