TWR Country Focus: USA
A coordinator with Project Hannah, TWR’s global women’s ministry, passed along the moving story of Ayaan, who was born to Somali Christian parents living in Ethiopia but adopted by another Somali family. The adoptive parents raised her in a different faith.
Ayaan (not her real name) married a man in Ethiopia and emigrated to the United States. The couple had two children but eventually divorced because her in-laws never accepted her. She became depressed and thought several times about killing herself after finding no solace in the religion she had been brought up to follow.

TWR Country Focus: Thailand
When a statistic about suicide rates in a Thailand province weighed heavy on his heart, this man took to the airwaves to try to do something about it.
Here’s his story:
"In the past, I heard that a nearby province had the highest percentage of people committing suicide for two years in a row. I wondered why this small province, which has kind and friendly people with good concern for others and not much pressure, should have so many people committing suicide.
