We then loaded all 13 of us into one pickup and headed to meet Judy and Jim, the founders of The Well. We heard about their story and their vision and then spent a few hours helping them paint a classroom in the recovery center. We broke off into groups and were able to see other parts of the ministry. We were finally able meet and have wonderful conversations with these anointed people that we have been praying for.
As the missionaries and staff members here shared their testimonies we were reminded that while we are surrounded by darkness in this industry we serve a mighty God. A God who can use factory workers and moms and meth addicts to do His work.
Hearing about what He has done in their lives gave us such hope for restoration as we headed into the red light district tonight. We broke up into pairs and prayed circles around the block. Some of us focused on prayer, some were led to speak to sex workers, and some were led to speak to consumers. As our night went on, we were reminded that He has gone before us and prepared a path. We are so excited to submit to His will and be vessels of His love this week. More updates to come!
