Message from Christy

Jesus loved and cared for many women, but one that always sticks in my mind is the woman with the alabaster jar of expensive perfume. While Jesus was a guest at the home of a Pharisee, she came in and poured the perfume on Jesus’ feet, rinsed them with her tears, and wiped them with her hair. Meanwhile, the pious host was offended at the presence of this immoral woman. Jesus forgave her sins and held her up as an example to his pious host (see Luke 7:36-50).

Let’s take our alabaster offerings--the best we have--and pour them out at the feet of Jesus so he can pour out his love and forgiveness on women who need it today. I hurt when I read about the plight of young women (some only girls) who get caught in prostitution through no fault of their own. I want to support the work of rescuing young women from a lifestyle of shame and degradation so they can be set free by the love of Christ and given the resources, such as a sewing machine, to help support themselves.

About Red Light Ministry

For the precious women who work in the red light district in the slums, working in this profession of darkness is often their only option. By supporting GFA's ministry in these areas, you'll be a part of showing them how much the Lord loves them, as well as providing practical tools to help break the cycle of oppression and poverty.

When you give towards Red Light District Ministry you'll be a part of providing practical gifts like sewing machines that open the door to a new lifestyle for these women and warm clothing for the winter. You'll also be supporting the children of these women, giving them a future beyond their mother's profession. Currently we are bringing the love of Jesus to over 75 children in these areas. Most of all, you'll be giving these women the chance to hear about the saving love of Jesus who calls them from darkness into light.
