When You Pass Through the Waters

When the January floods along Australia's Brisbane River swamped nearly 12,000 homes and tourist precincts, it also destroyed a sanctuary of hope, help and healing. 

The Hope Home in Rocklea was home to "Nat," a woman whose life, like others the Hope Foundation serves, had hit rock bottom. The Hope Foundation's mission is to bring liberty to women wanting a life change from addiction and the sex industry through consistent Christ-centered care. 

Nat was in recovery when the floods struck. The Hope Foundation—and Nat, who was recently reunited with her three children—saw a setback when the floodwaters rose over the roof. Everything Nat owned was ruined. But God is faithful.

Bronwen Healy, founder of the Hope Foundation, who herself escaped from a life of drug addiction in the sex industry, went into prayer, fasting—and fundraising. "We have seen God do amazing and over and above any blessing we've ever known!" she says. Within two weeks, donors made it possible for the Hope Foundation to sign a new lease—giving Nat and her children a new home while she continues her recovery. Says Healy: "[We're] believing this new season of 'all things new' will blow Nat away, Ephesians 3:20 style!"
