the god of true light in the RED LIGHT DISTRICT

He’s here. Her heart is beating out of her chest. She can feel it in her head so much her ears are ringing as she dashes to her familiar hiding spot. Under the tattered stale sheet, she catches her breath and plugs her ears so she can wait undetected until it’s over. The door closes. Maiya* can finally breathe. A few more tense moments pass, and she timidly peeks her eyes out from her hiding place… He’s gone. This is the reality of thousands of children in the Red Light District of Mumbai: waiting for Mom to finish her [sex] work… often hiding in the very same room…

A Dad & daughter relationship restored

Throughout her childhood in Malaysia, Nicol felt like she was the odd one out of her family. For years, she refused to talk to her parents, locking herself in her room after quickly eating dinner every night. It didn’t take long for her relationship with her parents to become strained and bitter. As a father, Raymond wasn’t sure what to do about
his daughter and the fights they were having. In a move of desperation, he and his wife decided to send their daughter to counseling through Focus on the Family Malaysia. Finally, after attending Focus’s event, they started to mend some of the brokenness in their relationship. Before long, Raymond and Nicol shared their story to countless families, showing how their relationship changed after learning how to love each other better. Raymond says, “By sharing our struggles, we can help give to others. We feel that Focus has done a lot for us, so it was a chance for us to go and give back to other families as well.”


The Orphan Affliction

Session after session, Enkhmma* was completely closed off and uncommunicative. Traumatized and timid, she was unwilling to even explore inside the bag of toys her counselor presented at the government orphanage in Mongolia where she lives.

Living Water in The Oases

In a remote desert community hundreds of miles from Cairo, Focus Egypt teaches nomadic families about God’s design. Sequestered near the only water source for miles, far from external cultural influence, sit three remote communities, fondly referred to as “The Oases.” Living off the grid, these people groups are considered desert “nomads”, in regard to their very basic lifestyle. Entire villages had never heard even a whisper of the Gospel until now…

Bringing hope to the Hopeless

“If you can imagine a 12yearold or 14yearold in the home trying to raise three or four other siblings, and they’ve got to figure out where their income’s coming from in order to feed them, in order for them to have clothing. And there’s often nowhere for them to go, other than predators around the area, who are essentially bartering sex for an orange, or for shoes, or for a uniform.”
