Amal / Hope

I met Amal at one of our relief distribution projects and was very encouraged by her faith. She told many stories of the hardships that she and her family endured starting the day that they left their home in Iraq.
The way she spoke, her choice of words, her stance, and the way she carried herself all were evidence of how God gives inconceivable strength and peace to those who put their trust in Him.

Amal: “Just 2 days after leaving our homes in Iraq, ISIS invaded our hometown and confiscated everything. We thank God that we were able to make it out safely just in time. It’s not easy to live in a foreign country, but no matter what, we thank God for everything and we thank organizations like you that reach out to help us. We trust that the Lord will be with us in the rest of our journey.
Look, I’m wearing a necklace that says Yasoua ,”يسوع”, (meaning Jesus) and I wear it with pride.”

Her name, “Amal”, means hope.
