Bringing the Light of Christ to the dark world of Sexual Exploitation
Today is going to be one of those awesome days but also a sad day. 3 of the daughters who have spent 5 days a week with us for the last 4 months gradute from the program and begin their new life in Christ. I am very excited for them as their business plans are excellent and will provide a very solid income meaning they will never again need to go to the streets to provide for their families. We have seen them blossom into strong woman of Christ, we prayed and counseled several demons out of 1 of them and have held their hands and loved on each of them as they fought to overcome pains caused by a life filled with exploitation, abuse, rape and pretty much every other worst nightmare a person can experience. The amazing thing is to see them now..they have confidence in themselves, in God and have transformed into the loving mothers filled with the love and grace only Christ can give. Today we will pray them into the next phase of life, we will wash their feet symbolic of the cleansing Christ has done in their lives and annoint them with oil to protect them from battles that will surely come their way. God I will miss them, their smiles, the giggling they brought to the Garden every day as they loved on each other and us. It is a blessing to witness truly changed lives and these 3 have been a special gift. This ministry definitely takes a lot of life out of us as it is a spiritual street brawl to win their souls but these times when we get to see the fruit blossom makes all the battles so worth it. I will cry, heck I am crying now as I write about what God has done in and for them but the tears are good ones..they are from the joy in my soul knowing we were used to not only lead these daughters to salvation but to help them to find freedom in Christ. They have won the battle and have overcome their pasts...they are new creations clean...they will still be part of our life and ministry on fridays and for special events but there will definitely be a void in our hearts each morning when they don't come walking into the Garden with that Godly pride of knowing they are home. Well done Lord...you did miracles and big kudos to Kenia, Joan, Silvia. Xiomarra, Hellen, Yamy and the many brothers and sisters who served them with us. A big applause as well to those who prayed for and funded the work done in Aura, Ana, and Maria. There is a saying..if you really love somone then you need to let them go..it is going to be very very difficult but we let them fly away knowing He will always be with them! Thanks all..this was some awesome fruit we produced united in Christ!!!!
The below pics are from their first day when we did interviews..as we compare the faces to the new ones God has given them...no words can describe it
Thanks again saints...this was a team effort all the way!
Love in Christ
