The Dieselberg family
During time in the U.S. with some of our staff, a young Russian woman, a trafficked victim, was noticed on a street in Los Angeles. We took her to lunch and it became apparent that she was both shell-shocked and had nowhere to stay. She was taken to a center in LA where she is receiving some care.
- Please pray for her recovery. Please also pray for the thousands of women who are in similar situations everyday around the world but go unnoticed. In Bangkok, it's a daily occurrence to see trafficked women on the streets from Russia, Central Asia and Africa. While it is prominent here, it is everywhere.
- Pray for awareness so that people are able to intervene in situations where trafficking may be happening locally.
We will be holding another party in our outreach center as we did a few months ago. 10 women from the red-light district will be invited to a Christmas party that will be run by some of the NightLight women.
- Please pray for the party and the women who will attend. We pray that it will lead to greater freedom in their lives.
December 17 is the NightLight Christmas Party. This is always a wonderful celebration and we pray that each woman feels truly celebrated and thankful for the season of remembering the incarnate Christ. After this NightLight is closed for a 2 week holiday. Many of the women will use this break to return to their home towns.
- Please pray for their protection in travel and against any temptation to return into any unhealthy habits that may be present during this time.
