I received an email from Sarah. In this email, she articulated the girls conversation with the director of Global Servants - the organization sponsoring House of Grace. The conversation laid out in larger detail the impact that this project could have on all of it's readers. But in this conversation, there was also something that struck the girls hard.

The Director warned Hannah and Sarah that the nature of this issue is truly heartbreaking. That the stories they will be hearing and witnessing and recording are rooted out of humiliating violation. Sarah and Hannah realized for the first time that this project is going to be a battle emotionally - to hold to Philippians 4:8. "Whatsoever things are good, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, if there be any praise, think on these things."

How do you find the good, honest, just, lovely, virtuous, and praiseworthy things in such heartbreak? It i.s. possible to find, but the energy spent in prayer to seek that out could be truly wearing.

So, let's pray for the girls. That God would give them eyes to see, and ears to hear, and hearts to understand His beautiful and powerful story in the midst of these tragedies. Let's also pray that the girls hearts would be guarded against the discouragement and disillusionment that may come from working so closely in such an issue.

Thank you prayer supporters. It is safe to say that eternity is going to be changed because you all stepped up through prayerful intervention on Hannah and Sarah's behalf.

    Will definitely be praying. Thanks so much for the update. The ability to find hope in the hurt, beauty in the pain, is what will define world changing media. Thank you Lord for these girls on the front lines.

    wow. Definitely something to pray about. I know that Hannah and Sarah have to be in the midst of a 'war zone' - spiritural warfare. I'm reminded of this: "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places." Ephesians 6:12

    God be with you dear ladies, and may your faith in Him grow stronger! We have HOPE and you get to share that hope with these young girls.

    You're in my thoughts and prayers.

    What you two are doing is so courageous - do not lose heart when trials come.
    So purposeful - may God's glory be continually in focus.
    So beautiful - love is poring from your hearts to those in such pain.

    ...And so needed. To wake up this world. To reveal the truth, and bring a clear glimpse to believers across the country of what our Almighty God can do.

    I am thankful that I can pray for you and in a little way be a part of this world changing revolution.
