It’s Worth It

LifePoint Church —  May 1, 2013 — Leave a comment

One Day BKKImagine reasoning that the only way to support your family is to sacrifice yourself physically, nightly in the darkest corners of society. Women in many places around the world, including Thailand, feel caught with no where to turn but to the last place they want to go…into an industry of sacrificing themselves so their family can survive. This is the life and incredibly difficult destination of thousands of women in Bangkok. The hurt is so great, our LP Bangkok team has discovered prostitutes outnumber Christians 4 to 1 in the city where we have been sent.

Along with our partner Benita and the Home of New Beginnings, LifePoint wants to show these women Jesus loves them and has a life of hope and wholeness. What a privilege and responsibility we have to make a difference! We will give and sacrifice one day’s salary through the One Day Offering so women can be “purchased” out of prostitution for an evening. During the evening, women will experience a dinner where they will be introduced to Jesus, given a sense of family as they are surrounded by the Body of Christ, and honored as creations of our Heavenly Father.

The need is enormous. The challenge and opportunity to give is clear: for the faith family of LifePoint Church to give one day’s salary as an offering above our tithes so:

Pray for your obedience and faith as we give. Pray for the resources we joyfully give to the work of the Kingdom to be multiplied beyond our own efforts. Pray for the lost and hurting to know the love of hope of Jesus.
