Finding the God of Truth and Grace

Now one of MOG’s leaders and World Challenge’s potential partners, one young lady looks back on how God made himself real to her.

I was born in Mexico. When I was five, my parents divorced. My father had put us in a situation where my mom was frightened for our safety.

We moved in with my grandparents who were Christians. Most people in Mexico are Catholic, so I grew up in a unique situation. 

Looking back, God was always present.

Picturing a Complete Family

I had a lot of anger as a child, and I would take it out on God mainly. I remember a couple nights getting really frustrated—“God, why is this part of my life this way?”—questioning everything.

Love the Neighbors: Sparking a Local Revolution

A heart for mission leaders in the United States has led World Challenge leaders to craft new ways to help.

When people talk about aid or nonprofits, usually the discussion is aimed at foreign disaster relief, feeding malnourished children or medical aid for epidemics. Only rarely do people think of the United States as the recipient of aid programs.

However, as issues such as racism, homosexuality, mass shootings and abortion shake our nation, many people are questioning how we can address these domestic troubles.

How do we help people on the other side of our own fence?

World Challenge’s Catalyst Grant program began as one response to this question.
