Through Equip the Nations indigenous missionaries, we want to empower abused and poverty-stricken women to live freely to the Lord by adding ten more slum sewing, literacy, and biblical counseling centers.
Our centers provide the atmosphere for women to truthfully talk with other women about their daily needs and struggles. The honesty allows our workers to use the Bible to answer their discussion questions. And often times, this opens the door for us to teach literacy and present the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
We understand that it takes time for abused and poverty-stricken women to learn that their new identity can be found in Christ. And that Christ will never leave or forsake them.
Through the sewing, literacy, & Counseling centers each abused poverty-stricken woman has the opportunity to believe that she is of great worth to Jesus. And that He can take her from a place of rejection, anxiety, and begging to a place of acceptance, hope, and financial security.
We emphasize that Jesus paved the road to grace and forgiveness with His blood to empower all to walk the narrow road.
This key lesson is hard for an abused woman living in the slum to grasp. But with prayer and counseling, all things are possible.
After the training, the women can produce clothes to be sold to their neighbors, in their nearby markets, and distributed through local merchants.
Our goal is to set up ten NEW sewing literacy and counseling centers in the slums.
