Ministries Making a Difference
Reach the Forgotten, Refuge for Women, and a completed Bible translation
Tyndale House Publishers donated hundreds of books to Reach the Forgotten Jail Ministry, and at the end of this month, chaplains with the Michigan-based jail ministry will gather and “shop” for the donated reading material to take back to the county jails where they serve. Reach the Forgotten Jail Ministry has two stars and an “A” transparency grade in the MinistryWatch database, and a donor confidence score of 92.
Refuge for Women has promoted Deanna Lynn Spangler as the new executive director for its Kentucky branch. The ministry provides short- and long-term housing for women escaping human trafficking and sexual exploitation. In 2012, Spangler became the first graduate of the ministry’s one-year program, and she has since graduated from Asbury Theological Seminary with her master’s degree. Refuge for Women runs 10 homes spanning six metropolitan areas. It has two stars and an “A” transparency grade in the MinistryWatch database, and a donor confidence score of 96.

The translation, started by a Wycliffe missionary over 66 years ago, was sponsored in part by a decades-long partnership with Virginia Beach Community Church.
