Ministries Making a Difference
Risen Motherhood, BGEA, Voice of the Martyrs
Editor’s Note: This week’s Ministries Making a Difference features nonprofits that are producing media products.
A partner with Voice of the Martyrs, Omid Sabouki, is publishing a magazine specifically for women in Iran as part of his ministry that focuses on the value of women—something often overlooked or undermined in the majority-Muslim nation, according to Mission Network News. “[Many Iranian women] don’t know they are valuable. That’s why they think, ‘I’m only a thing that men can buy,’ or something similar,” Sabouki said. The magazine features women sharing on various topics, as well as recipes and movie reviews. It has opened doors for his team to share Bibles, the Gospel, and invite women to small groups.
Risen Motherhood, a media ministry that “exists to encourage, equip, and challenge moms to apply the gospel to their everyday lives,” is launching a podcast mini-series this Wednesday focused on thinking critically about social media. As a ministry whose platform is largely social media-based, the R|M team will wrestle through the good, the bad, and the ugly of how social media is impacting the lives of moms and their families, and how to engage wisely. A free corresponding workbook is also available. R|M has also published a book by the same name—Risen Motherhood— and offers free Bible study tools for moms and kids on its website.
The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association recently published the digital guide “How to Pray for Law Enforcement.” The free four-page guide includes Scripture and directives on prayer, along with specific requests for officers and their families. It also provides information on challenges officers face, such as PTSD, depression, and suicide. The law enforcement ministry of the Billy Graham Rapid Response Team, which was started in response to the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, focuses on the emotional and spiritual needs of officers and their families.
