Bringing Hope to Women in a Broken World

By John Lundy
Global, TWR Women of Hope

On March 8, a day that’s devoted to the role of women throughout the world, the vital work women play in the universal work of the Church might be overlooked.

But it’s ever-present in the minds of the leadership of TWR Women of Hope.

“We believe that God sees every woman, and we continue to bring hope to women in Jesus to let them know they are valued and have a voice to speak hope to a broken world,” said Dr. Peggy Banks, TWR Women of Hope global director. 

International Women’s Day might sound like a contemporary event. In fact, the day has been observed since 1911, according to the organization’s website. It began in Europe, but similar events had been staged in the United States as early as 1909.

“As a ministry to women, we are reaffirming that as women there is a role for each woman in ministry,” said Harmony Buffington, content coordinator for TWR Women of Hope, which was founded in 1997.

“We pray women know they have a purpose and plan in God’s kingdom,” Buffington added.

TWR Women of Hope has prayer intercessors in 125 countries, and its Women of Hope program is available in more than 70 languages.

Among initiatives the ministry is working on this year:

  • An audio program, called Precious and Beloved, especially designed for women in the Muslim world. Developers are “specifically understanding the culture and the mindset and the beliefs and trying to bring the hope of Jesus in a way that is relatable and understood,” Buffington said.
  • For Christmas 2022, the Hope Market campaign will allow people to donate to the work of TWR Women of Hope as they receive and remember the needs of the women through unique gifts and cards for family members and friends. All the proceeds will support the TWR Women of Hope projects.
  • TWR Women of Hope’s prayer calendar has been changed from emphasizing a different topic each month to focus on the work of TWR Women of Hope in each of our nine regions. “We’re able to get a much deeper understanding of the needs in each region because they’re not being limited to a specific topic,” Buffington said.

Women of Hope is also in the early phases of developing a follow-up to Hidden Treasures, an audio drama that ministers to survivors of human trafficking. You can learn about the ministries of TWR Women of Hope here.
