Goli was a single mum and several months pregnant when, overcome by the hard times she faced, she decided to kill herself.
God intervened through the radio in the programme Women of Hope which spoke directly into her life. Through the support of the local TWR Women of Hope team in Côte d’Ivoire, she got the support she needed to be able to say, “Jesus is the Saviour of my life. He is the best thing that ever happened to me: I am alive because Jesus resolved it all.”
You can hear her story in her own words by clicking here to watch the video, or by reading the transcript below.
If you would like to pray for the work of TWR Women of Hope, here are some up to the minute prayer points:
- Please pray for the team in South Africa who are producing Women of Hope in the Xhosa language.
- Women of Hope are holding a conference in Northern Thailand this weekend. 300 women are expected to attend.
- TWR Women of Hope launched recently in Zimbabwe. Please pray for the team during these early days.
There are millions around the world who think they have been forgotten by God. Local TWR workers are able to interact with hurting listeners and show God’s love to them in person. Goli lives in Côte d’Ivoire, West Africa. This is her story.
“Jesus is the Saviour of my life. He is the best thing that ever happened to me: I am alive because Jesus resolved it all. It was in October and I was a few months pregnant. I was going through hard times and on that day I wanted to kill myself. I did not want to go alone, I took my son with me. I decided to stand in the middle of the road and hope that a car would run over us. No car wanted to run over me. Around 8 at night I went home.
When I got home, I turned up the radio. It was the rebroadcast of the radio show, Women of Hope. The message that day was about me. A woman who did not know where to go, who had no hope anymore, a woman who thinks that her God might have abandoned her, and for whom death was better.
That same night at 10pm I called TWR, and the next day they came to my house. They brought me into prayer groups, and they supported me with prayers, day and night.
They don’t just stay behind their machines: they get out. They come to the people. It’s precisely their love for the work that led them to me.
For me, Jesus is everything. When you think it is over, there is still hope.”
