A Thief Reborn and Transformed

Steve Voyen

God is the only one who can completely change a hard heart, and he has done exactly this in one man who lived wildly and dangerously.

The Community Transformation ministry located in Western Kenya reaches hundreds of people spread across the Rift Valley region with the transformative power of the gospel.

Many of the Rift Valley community members have experienced salvation in Jesus Christ as a direct result of their involvement with World Challenge’s partners.

The people of Liberia have survived several waves of epidemic diseases and civil war, and now their people are rising up to help a community finally recover.

Josephus graduated from his university in Liberia magna cum laude, a very high honor. This degree, no matter how prestigious, however, couldn’t seem to secure him a job. He was job hunting for nearly two years before he finally landed a low-paying position at a mission station in the city of Ganta.

In the book of Isaiah, God gives a beautiful image of Christ and his mission to save God’s chosen people in the famous 53rd chapter.

World Challenge’s widow program in Uganda is helping women find freedom and joy once again through prayer and the Spirit’s healing.

When Filda’s husband was murdered, she felt joy quietly pack up its bags, nod to her from the door and then step out into Uganda’s shimmering heat.
