Nicole’s Story

Nicole is a 38-year-old migrant mother who had a baby boy in October 2020. Soon after our more severe COVID-19 lockdown restrictions were lifted, Nicole moved into Hope House. Our staff began working with her on how to properly feed her newborn son. Nicole had been feeding him a diet of mashed potatoes and bananas, which had caused severe intestinal issues for the baby.

Nicole was also taken to a Christian clinic to receive medical care; she had a severe breakout on her face, which she had been improperly treating. There she was prescribed a proper treatment plan. During her time with us at Hope House, Nicole was able to hear the gospel many times.

Nicole had two other children (a teenager and an almost one-year-old) back in her home country who were being cared for by her mom. Both her daughter (17 years old) and her mom are Christians who had been praying that Nicole would be able to return home in time for her son’s first birthday.

Nicole’s daughter had been made fun of by classmates in school and mocked for her faith. “Where is your God?” they had laughed at her continuously, day after day. God in His compassion honored this teenager’s prayers. Her mother, Nicole, boarded a flight back to her home country the day before her brother’s birthday. Pray that Nicole will have an encounter with Jesus that would lead to saving faith.

Hope House: Annie’s Story

Annie, age 22, comes from a rough family background. Raised on the streets by alcoholic parents, she became a Christian when she was miraculously healed of a brain tumor. Annie moved to our metropolitan city to try to find work so that she could support her mom financially.

Annie was introduced to a young man who was the only son of a reputable family from her homeland. They got married, but only two weeks into the marriage, he started drinking and became physically violent. He refused to reform, deciding instead to return to their homeland.

Shortly after his departure, Annie discovered she was pregnant. Due to her previous brain tumor, Annie was not strong physically. She had a hard pregnancy. In early February 2022, after a difficult delivery, she gave birth to a baby boy, David.

Annie is not sure how she will be able to keep working to support herself. Fearing shame, Annie often suffers from panic attacks, yet she has been unwilling to reach out to other believers from her same ethic background.

Our staff has provided help with practical and medical needs as well as spiritual and emotional support. Pray that Annie’s family will find freedom from addiction and that they will experience healing in Jesus’ name.
