As a missionary serving at the Send Relief Ministry Center in downtown Boston, Faith often finds herself in alleyways looking for women who are looking for help. “In anti-trafficking and sexual abuse awareness work, you have to remember that everyone you meet is searching for Christ’s perfect love,” she says. “They just don’t always know they’re seeking Christ.”
Not long ago, one of the women Faith met on the street showed up at the ministry center. Faith and her volunteers had invited her to come and help make jewelry that they hand out to women on the street.
“We made jewelry and talked for two hours,” Faith says. “There’s a stereotype that women who are homeless or working the clubs want to be there. It’s because of tough life circumstances they find themselves there and looking for a way out.”
The Cooperative Program takes the Gospel to the nations and the neighborhoods. Your financial support through the Cooperative Program and the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering gives missionaries the resources they need to minister to the “least of these” and inspire local believers to do the same.
Pray for Faith and her volunteers to build witnessing relationships with people who are trafficked or abused.
