1. How did Marilyn & Sarah Ministries get started?

Nearly 50 years ago, Marilyn Hickey responded to God’s call on her life to “cover the earth with His Word” (Isaiah 11:9). At the time, Marilyn couldn’t imagine what that would mean, and how God would send her around the globe teaching the Bible and building bridges with people of all cultures and religious backgrounds, especially Muslims. Over the past several decades, the Lord has continually opened doors of opportunity for Marilyn in 140 countries.

From humble beginnings to the international organization known today as Marilyn & Sarah Ministries, Marilyn and Sarah share a calling for bringing people into relationship with Jesus Christ, helping those in need, and taking the gospel to the nations.

2. What does Marilyn & Sarah Ministries do?

Marilyn & Sarah Ministries is a Bible teaching ministry led by Marilyn Hickey and her daughter, Sarah Bowling. They work together to fulfill their mission of “Covering the earth with the Word while connecting every one with the heart of God” as they teach the Bible and minister healing and victory all over the world. They have helped millions of individuals overcome setbacks, receive healing, and reach their full potential in Christ.

Marilyn is also a highly sought after international public speaker. She has taken the message of healing and hope to over 140 countries. Her events have broken records in several countries for the largest public meetings ever held in some of the most hard-to-reach countries. Marilyn has had audiences with government leaders and heads of state all over the world.

Sarah is also an internationally recognized speaker and humanitarian who founded Saving Moses, a global humanitarian organization saving babies (five and under) by meeting the most urgent and intense survival needs where help is least available. She is a discerning Bible teacher, and her insights equip her to deliver authentic messages wherever she speaks, empowering people to connect to the Holy Spirit in their everyday living.

Marilyn & Sarah Ministries sends a clear message of love, hope, and healing to people around the world through Bible teaching, international healing meetings, group ministry tours, as well as conferences for pastors and leaders. Marilyn and Sarah also have produced nearly 1,500 CD and DVD teaching and more than 110 published books (in 27 languages). Their daily television program, Today with Marilyn & Sarah, is a worldwide program broadcast in 130 countries with a potential audience of 2.2 billion households worldwide.

3. What is Saving Moses?
Saving Moses’ heart is to rescue the lives of children 5 years and younger by assisting with physical, medical, food and water needs. God has given a vision to Sarah Bowling and Saving Moses to impact Africa and Asia, ministering and rescuing the forgotten and overlooked. Sarah knows the future of these continents depends on the lives of these children.

In Asia, babies and young toddlers are raised in an environment where their mothers know only one way of life—prostitution. In 2012 Saving Moses’ opened its first-ever “NightCare” facility that allows young children to come to a safe place to eat and receive not only healthy food, but a healthy environment that extends the love of Jesus, while their mothers work. Children are given food, a bath, new clothes, playtime, story time, and a good night’s sleep.

Through their malnutrition program, Saving Moses provides nutritional supplements and therapeutic milk in countries where the infant mortality rate is high. This means that lots of babies are dying within the first year of their lives. The cause for malnutrition in each country varies but usually is a result of poor health infrastructure and lack of food security.

Through BirthAid, they provide community-based education and skilled birth attendants in high conflict areas and rural sub-Saharan Africa where the neonatal mortality rate is high due to lack of birth education and low access to healthcare.

Her 2016 trip turned out to be one of the most successful in Marilyn’s 40-plus year history of international ministry when over one million people attended her healing meeting in Pakistan.
