Courage House Tanzania’s first wedding was a special day filled with love, hope and joy!
This weekend we celebrated the wedding of a former Courage House resident! Brenda* had been at Courage House for over four years, successfully completed our vocational training program and recently transitioned out on her own. Not only is she radiant, she is kind, gentle and hardworking. Brenda is an active member of her church and has a passion for working with children
Her transformation in the past few years has been incredible – almost unrecognizable to when she first arrived at Courage House. Brenda is a prime example of the restoration that is happening at Courage House, and the rich futures in store for each of the young girls and women we are working with.
Instead of your shame
you will receive a double portion,
and instead of disgrace
you will rejoice in your inheritance.
And so you will inherit a double portion in your land,
and everlasting joy will be yours.
At the engagement ceremony of this couple, one of the Courage House girls leaned over to a staff member and whispered “Do you think this could happen for me?”
Many of these girls have carried heavy shame because of their past, of being exploited even by those closest to them. The deep trauma leads them to believe that they don’t deserve love and that they will never find someone who will love them in this way.
However, the older residents of Courage House Tanzania were able to attend their “older sister’s” special day. These girls were so encouraged and filled with hope, that one day, this could be them!
We could not be more proud of Brenda and her new husband. We know that they will receive joy and blessings as they begin their married life. This ceremony was huge for all of us, to see that the lives of the young women at Courage House Tanzania can absolutely be restored and redeemed.
Because of you and your support, lives like Brenda’s are being changed every single day through safety, counseling, education, love and more. Thank you so much for your faithfulness.
