Stories and Testimonies
Stories of Living Hope is a collection of stories of women who have come out of prostitution as well as children of the women, who have put their faith in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour and experienced His transforming life in theirs. These stories were written between February 2005 and August 2006. As with all of our lives, the lives of the women and children in this book are ever-changing and in the process of becoming the works of art the Lord intended them to be.
The stories you read are in some sense only a series of snapshots from the photo album of the women and children’s lives, but our prayer is that they will give you a “picture” of the hope that exists in Christ for every person, no matter how broken and wounded, and of the great potential for beauty that lies beneath and within the pain and the suffering of every soul. May these stories inspire you, challenge you, encourage you and ultimately increase your hope and faith in our risen Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
“Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.
For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.”
2 Corinthians 4:16-1
“To those who have been called, who are loved by God the Father and kept by Jesus Christ: mercy, peace and love be yours in abundance.”
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.”
