The women missionaries of Eden Ministry literally walk the streets by day and night, praying for and meeting with the countless souls who are consumed by this darkness.
You must go and read Lisa's blog, Eden Street Outreach. It is devastating to read of the sheer magnitude of the problem. But at the same time I am overwhelmed with hope by the work God is doing through them.
Not only does Eden Ministry seek to bring the hope of Jesus to the streets, they also help women find a safe and legal means to support themselves. From their website:
To enable women to have a sustainable income during their journey of restoration, we created Eden Jewelry, an international jewelry company. Jewelry making has been one of the most effective alternative career options available through our program. All the proceeds from the jewelry sales go to salaries for the girls and food and shelter expenses, as well as providing new training opportunities.
I am so happy to support this fruitful ministry. This Give Back Giveaway is a bracelet of your choice from Eden Ministry.
