Through the Eyes of a New Mom

April 23, 2014

Cissie Graham Lynch shares how motherhood has given her a new perspective on helping women around the world.

Cissie Graham Lynch has worked alongside her father, Franklin Graham, in ministry for years. She has a passion for helping women and sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ through the international relief projects of Samaritan’s Purse.

Cissie2From the time I was a little girl I have traveled with my Dad to many of the places Samaritan's Purse works around the world. I’ve seen the daily hardships of women living with the despair of extreme poverty, disaster, and disease. Since I’ve
become a mom, I notice many things we take for granted are luxuries for these women. I’m so thankful every day that I can provide for my little girl. I can give her what these women can’t even imagine having—like diapers, medicine, and clean water for baths.

Millions of mothers can only feed their children one meal a day. They can’t turn on a faucet, so they carry their little ones for miles to fetch water. They can’t provide an education. They don’t have a skill to earn money for their families. Saddest of all, they don’t know that Jesus loves them. 

Bob Pierce, the founder of Samaritan’s Purse, said you can’t help everyone, but you can help some. We can’t help every mother in need, but we can provide God’s love in tangible ways to thousands of women around the world through our programs. We can share the message of salvation through Jesus and help them raise a new generation of believers who stand firm on the hope of Christ.
