During business training in Malawi, Country Director Douglas Kulaisi was teaching a session on reconciliation.
His question to group leaders: “Do Christian couples experience conflict?”
Women: It’s men that bring conflict.
Men: No, it’s not. We forgive first.
Women: Men never say “I’m sorry.”
Some things never change. Whether in the U.S. or rural Malawi, relationships are messy.
But God’s business is reconciliation.
I saw this firsthand. As local leaders came together, they prayed. And they gave their relationships to Jesus—for Him to renew, transform, and make all things new.
HOPE staff like Douglas walk alongside families in poverty.
Beyond providing financial services, HOPE seeks to set people free from spiritual bondage and to promote wholeness in families and communities. As Douglas told the group:
We have been forgiven by God, so we need to forgive each other. There is power in Jesus.
Please be praying as Jesus works in the lives of people in rural Malawi.
Pray His Spirit would move among His people to bring unity—and that He would transform our mutual brokenness into something beautiful.
Thank you for journeying with us.
