  1. Perseverance! Thank you for partnering with God in making this work — and then for sharing your story to encourage others!

  2. The plight of women is often overlooked as they are of little or no value in some cultures, and here in America, it’s domestic violence and I’ve seen so much drug abuse, even prescription medications. Women everywhere are certainly in need of prayer and intercession.

  3. Oh WOW…. so powerful and beautiful! Prayers as you embark on this journey! #livefreeThursday

  4. Rachel,
    I was reading Yar’s story and it resonated with me because of my work in the Middle East. I’m going to throw Americans under the bus, but we are blissfully ignorant of the war atrocities that are carried out everyday around the globe in different countries. Orphans and refugees, fearing for their lives, are left behind. Thank you for shining a spotlight on these innocent lives who face oppression and persecution every day. We all need to wake up to what is REALLY going on in the world. Thank you for sharing, Rachel.
    Blessings,
    Bev

      Thank you too, Bev, for the wonderful work you do for Redeemer Christian Foundation in Pakistan.

  5. Awareness is what NEEDS to happen first. Thank you for being available to God first and to Yar. You are taking her story and bringing it out into the open. It takes community to spread the word and to wrap our arms around those who have been oppressed. I am a slow learner, but care about women such as Yar. I will being with a prayer.

  6. Isn’t it wonderful how the Lord brings about these intersections in our lives & if we take the time & listen to the Holy Spirit, we have the opportunity to actually begin reaching beyond ourselves & saying “yes”. I’m just a baby in the saying yes to God thing. I have just begun. I was afraid for so long. But I love it & Im getting braver. I’m saying yes to more & more things. Things that could put me in situations that might be hard. But I know God will help me if I’m just willing to step out in faith. I’ll keep saying yes. I’ve come too far to quit now. I love God too much.

  7. Rachel, I am so looking forward to following this journey! I am also thankful she is sharing her story and casting a light on these unjustices. I pray God will bring the hearts of those willing to step in and make a difference for these precious girls! So glad you whispered yes:-) (sharing this on social media for sure!)
    Blessings and smiles,
    Lori

  8. Thank you for saying ‘yes’ and using your talents to share her story to help us all be more aware.

  9. I can’t even imagine what Yar went through and all God brought her through. That is so cool how God led you to her!

  10. It’s amazing when God interrupts our plans with His! Thanks for sharing at Grace and truth.
