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.
Alliance Women is committed to prayer and financial support for the Hope House maternity home ministry in Eastern Europe. We have set a goal to raise $20,000 for this life-giving ministry to migrant women.
