India’s Girls Are at Risk

alt

Gender-based violence takes many forms, but it is perhaps most brutal in India–where many girls never get a chance. Some poor families kill their baby girls because they cannot afford to pay a dowry for them when they grow up and marry. Others abandon their daughters. This is why The Mordecai Project has partnered with Raja and Padma Undurthi, Indian ministry leaders, to build and manage the Mordecai House in Tanuku, India. We offer housing, meals and education along with a safe, Christian environment for these girls. And we hope to build them a bigger home soon with your help. Your donations to The Mordecai Project will help us expand this outreach. We also hope to establish another home for abandoned girls in the state of Bihar, in the north of India.

Please help us!

Colombian Men Repent for Abuse

alt

On March 8, 2015, which was International Women’s Day, The Mordecai Project sponsored a march through the streets of downtown Barranquilla, Colombia, to help raise awareness of the problem of domestic violence and to offer a spiritual solution. The “No Más Violencia!” rally drew more than 500 people and culminated at the Plaza de la Paz, in front of the city’s main cathedral. After a time of worship, the men in the audience went to the stage area and knelt to pray. Several pastors from the city offered heartfelt prayers of repentance on behalf of the men of Colombia, and they asked God to forgive them for the way women have been treated in the nation. Women were visibly moved because they had never seen men apologize for the mistreatment and abuse of women. We believe the spiritual stronghold of machismo is coming down–and that a new era of healing has begun for the battered and brutalized women of Colombia.

Guatemala’s Women Need Hope

alt

Guatemala has the highest rate of femicide in the world. Every year hundreds of women are murdered by their husbands or partners, and often the perpetrators of the crimes are not sentenced. The Mordecai Project is doing something to stop this violence. We are now in partnership with a growing church in eastern Guatemala near the city of Zacapa. In this photo you can M2020-615 see Pastors Erik and Ana Ester Paz, who lead Iglesia Nueva Vision in the community of Patagala. In 2014 we purchased the land to build a women’s shelter. This year a team from Puerto Rico, Florida and South Dakota will be going to help construct the shelter. We will also be sending a team of trained counselors to help launch the ministry. Please consider helping us!
