From Rags to Restoration: Women’s Health Project

The four girls, ages 6, 10, 12 and 14, looked dirty and malnourished as they accompanied their mother to the women’s health seminar.

With 12 children, Ranjana and her husband struggled to provide adequate nutrition or proper clothes for their daughters. Saddened by the girls’ appearance, the believers teaching the seminar shared with Ranjana about the importance of giving her daughters proper nutrition, encouraged her to send them to school and gave a dress to the oldest daughter.

No one had ever taught her things like this before, Ranjana told them.

“From now on, I will try my best to give good food to my children,” she said.

Because of the seminar, GFA workers had the opportunity to continue blessing this needy family—and many others. Soon, Ranjana welcomed some women missionaries and the local pastor’s wife to start a literacy class in her home. Through this class, she, her children and some of their neighbors are learning to read and write, in addition to hearing Bible stories and gaining basic math skills.

Through your support of Gospel for Asia’s Women’s Ministry, women like Ranjana—and their children—are receiving vital knowledge about health and nutrition and, more important, experiencing Christ’s love.
