Dear Friends,

When Messiah Yeshua walked this earth it impresses me so much how loving He was towards women. In this world today we see so much oppression towards women and children that it is almost devastating.

We interviewed Nellie. She and her husband have established schools and homes for women and children in India and other countries. The things Nellie is talking about are very serious and disturbing. You will find these interviews in the category: Human Rights.

There is a poem of my friend Nell Zier about our Tears in the category: Poetry. Sonja has written a beautiful testimony about the way God has joined her to Israel in the category: Woman of valor. The poll on the homepage has a connection with this issue.

From Jerusalem there is an article about an inspiring exposition in the Tower of David Museum. This exposition shows us that there is much healing power in nature. This in the category: Exploring Israel.

When our risen Messiah becomes part of our spiritual life, things are changing for the better. Even the suffering poor women in India develop a new identity and become strong women. They are studying and able to have better jobs. Our Messiah is interested in our progress spiritually and in our daily lives.

Trusting the Lord that He will bring everything to a good ending is giving us the strength to continue in a precious faith that can only come from our loving Father in heaven.

God bless you all,

WoV editor in chief
