Friday Night Outreach
We are seeing lives change on the streets of Prague. Every Thursday and Friday night that we are in Prague.
The scripture talks a lot about how we, as individuals are to treat the poor and the outcast. Proverbs 19:17, "He that hath mercy upon the poor, lendeth unto the Lord: and the Lord will recompense him that which he hath given." Vaclav is one of the homeless men we see on the street almost every week. He's not able to work because of his diabetes. It seems that he is always glad to see us because we are friendly in a place where people avoid him or others take advantage of him. Through our friendship Vaclav has drawn closer to committing his life to Jesus.
On Friday nights we minister to people caught in human trafficking. These people are the outcasts of society. They are caught in a human meat grinder and don't know how or are afraid to get out. The scripture also talks about how we should treat them. Proverbs 24:11-12 "Deliver them that are drawn to death, and wilt thou not preserve them that are led to be slain? If thou say, Behold, we knew not of it: he that pondereth the hearts, doth not he understand it? and he that keepeth thy soul, knoweth he it not? will he not also recompense every man according to his works?" Through the years we've seen several men and women leave the trafficking industry. We have been helping one lady who came out of trafficking, and dedicated her life to Jesus, two and a half years ago . It has been very difficult for her since she is still suffering from post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) which she experienced from so much physical and sexual abuse.
Please continue to pray for us as we minister the love of Jesus to so many hurting people.
