In 2010, Frin and Dave went on a short-term mission trip to India. During this time, they visited an organisation located in one of the largest, most infamous red-light districts. Within a few square miles more than 10,000 women stand in line selling their bodies to thousands of men who visit daily. Many are trafficked from surrounding rural villages and nearby countries. For others poverty has left them without options. This organisation opened in 2001 to provide these women with alternative employment, thus breaking the cycle of poverty and exploitation.
Frin had always felt the call to go back, but it wasn’t until Dave was made redundant in March that they felt God prompting them to knock on the door. The door opened. Wide. At the end of October they will be moving to a language school before heading to India in January. Dave will be project managing all the different organisation locations, working with both local tradespeople and volunteers to help serve the women more effectively. Frin will be working directly with women still in the sex-trade; building relationships and helping them find freedom.
They are seeking people who can partner with them in their exciting adventure, both in prayer and financial support and would like to communicate directly via a regular newsletter with those who would like to be involved.
The Global Partnership team’s purpose at Ebe is to implement and influence the church’s strategy for sharing the gospel and serving the needs of others cross-culturally. That includes helping the church to walk alongside those who go out from Ebe to serve God cross-culturally by supporting and encouraging them in a variety of ways.
