A Widows’ Revival in Dungu

In northern DRC, post-LRA trauma healing programs have sparked a revival, with twelve new churches begun.

What is it?

She’s My Sister brings Bible-based trauma healing to victims of war and violence in the Great Lakes region of Africa. By equipping local churches with practical resources and training in trauma healing, this program of American Bible Society helps children, women and men find hope and new life after experiencing injustice.

Why should I care?

In Isaiah 1:17, God tells his people, “See that justice is done—help those who are oppressed, give orphans their rights, and defend widows.” Why does God say that? Because justice is part of God’s character. And he calls us to work for justice in the world around us.
