HEARTS ON THE MOVE: ESTHER’S FRIENDS, WOMEN SERVING GOD THROUGH GLOBAL HEART MINISTRIES
Introducing Queen Esther
Little girls love the story of Queen Esther, a woman so beautiful she won the heart of a king. Women love Queen Esther, because she used the gifts God gave her to do what only she could do.
Queen Esther is traditionally recognized as the wife of King Xerxes of Persia, who ruled 486-465 BC. Historians quibble about details, but they tend to agree Esther is a historical figure and she is at the center of the Jewish celebration of Purim.
Queen Esther and Global Heart Ministries
GHM’s primary area of ministry focus is centered in the part of our world once controlled by the Persian Empire, so we naturally feel a special tie to Queen Esther; but there’s more. While urging Queen Esther to act on the behalf of her people, her Uncle Mordicai admonished her by saying, “And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?”
Just as Queen Esther was put in an influential position for a particular time, we too are called to serve at a very particular time. Before the dawn of satellite broadcasting, no one dreamed of this kind of ministry. With the political situation in Central Asia and the Middle East, there is no other way for the Gospel to reach the people in these countries.
In the Biblical account of Queen Esther, her attendants fasted with her, as she prepared to approach the king. She wanted to prevent the upcoming slaughter of the Jewish people, which had been cunningly planned by an evil courtier. Queen Esther’s plea was granted by the king.
GHM’s Esther’s Friends will, in the same spirit, join together for a common goal. Our goal is to spread the Gospel in Central Asia and the Middle East. With the King of King’s blessing, we will accomplish that goal, also.
Esther’s Friends will be divided into three groups: a team of prayer warriors, a team of volunteers and a financial support team. Whether you have only a few moments in a week, a few hours in a year or many hours in many days to offer, we have a place for you among Esther’s Friends. Whatever your gift, we can use it.
Befriend the Queen
