Building relationships over time
WE HAVE BEEN working to build a relationship with a man we often see on Patpong. He always has a smile and a greeting for us. This man receives a commission for every prostitution customer he brings into the bars.
Recently, he came to Rahab. His daughter had gone to America with a man, supposedly to marry him. Once there, she was put in a brothel and made to work. She was able to get back to Thailand to her family, but began hanging out around the bars and drinking there. Her father was concerned for her and brought her to Rahab to see if we could help. This man does not want this kind of life for his own daughter.
These relationships can take a lot of time to build, but they are so important. We praise God that the Patpong community is starting to trust Rahab Ministries.
Rahab Ministries is involved in evangelising and discipling the women of the red-light industry in Bangkok.
