An urgent need has come to my attention just a few minutes ago. For those of you who read this blog, you will have just read an episode called Harvest Stories: Overcomers. If you have not, this is the direct link: http://keeplookingupward.com/harvest-stories-overcomers-6252016/
The 26 widows whose experiences were told in this story have a special need. As I am sure you will understand, in writing the testimony of what has happened to them, it was not possible, nor prudent, to detail everything that really happened to these women during their captivity in the hands of the ISIS terrorists. What they endured, and for an extended duration of time, was beyond gruesome. It is beyond imagining…
They are now in the wonderful and capable hands of House of Blessing missionaries, specifically Fatimah and those helping her. They have been restored in their faith and are protected from danger. However, due to the extreme experiences they have had, they are going through a new horror. Now that they are safe, the memories of what all transpired is coming back to haunt them, especially during the night time. They are suffering terrible nightmares as well as hallucinations. It is more than Sister Fatimah is able to handle all at once.
Here is the need: Fatimah needs to set them up in a separate location for a month or two. She has access to believers who are professionals in the medical and psychological fields. These people will be able to minister to their healing processes in both areas. Due to the torture they endured, they also have injuries to their bodies that need be addressed.
I don’t intend to make a long appeal out of this. I will just tell you the need and trust God to meet it. He is the Lord of the harvest, and we are His extended hands on this earth. Sister Fatimah has said it will take $300 apiece to set each of the 26 women up in a place that is secure and with professional help in place. This amounts to a total of $7,800.
Healing can come instantaneous, but sometimes, especially emotionally or mentally, it takes a little time. We have seen the Lord do some tremendous miracles. Let’s believe Him to completely set these 26 women free of the horrors they have gone through, and in a short time. What the devil intends for evil is taken by our Master and turned into good!
In this case, please send financial help to one of the two locations below and designate it for the “26 widows”. I know that there is a tremendous need for Bibles and other crucial items, but this need is critical and time is of the essence. Sister Fatimah is already carrying a very heavy load in Fallujah and needs help from the family…us, the Body of Christ. Either address below will get the money into the hands of HOB within 24 hours of being received by mail.
