Lasting Transformation Through Scripture

  • March 14, 2016

Jon Hampshire and his family served for years in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). In this video, he discusses what happened after a genocide affected the area. Through clean water and shelter, as well as advocates against violence and oppression impacted those communities, he saw one thing above all else transform hearts and lives: Scripture. Jon discusses how he’s seen true healing and transformation in the midst of trauma take place within communities who have access to Scripture in their own language. “Lasting transformation,” he says, “doesn’t take place until people’s hearts are transformed by an understanding of what God’s Word says about things like trauma and grace and forgiveness and healing.”
