Small outreach teams are bringing Christmas gifts to over 1,000 women in brothels and on the street in Central Europe. In one city, they are also giving ladies a Christmas card, printed by OM EAST; inside there is an invitation to a Christmas party hosted by OM EAST partners for ladies trapped in prostitution and for those who have managed to leave.

“We want to offer a change of environment—a safe place where they feel loved and can rest,” expressed outreach worker Sara*. “We want to share the Christmas story and tell them the Lord Jesus Christ came to save them too. We will sing songs, which I hope they remember during dark nights.”

Women are receiving little wall calendars with Bible verses in their own language. On the back of the calendar, it explains the way to salvation through faith in Jesus.  

“May God’s Word give direction, hope and comfort in times of need,” declared Sara. “May women dare to call on His name, be saved and experience many miracles.”

Please pray for God’s protection over outreach teams and their families. Please pray for safe travel and parking spaces when driving in the city. Please pray that individuals would have courage to come to the celebration and accept the ultimate invitation to receive Jesus as their Saviour.
