The Adulterous Woman in John Chapter 8:
"The scribes and the Pharisees brought a woman who had been caught in adultery, and placing her in the midst they said to him, "Teacher, this woman has been caught in the act of adultery. Now in the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women. So what do you say?"
"This they said to test him, that they might have some charge to bring against him. Jesus bent down and wrote with his finger on the ground."
Have you ever wondered what Jesus was writing on the ground? Scripture never divulges this information because it isn't important. Jesus was using this distraction waiting to hear from his Father because he only said what the Father told him he should say.
After admonishing the scribes and Pharisees, Jesus stood up and said to her, "Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?" She said, "No one, Lord." And Jesus said, "Neither do I condemn you; go, and from now on sin no more."
This is the voice and mission of Grace Ministry, to let these women know that Jesus loves and forgives them and to help rescue them from the trapped life they are living. The bible does not tell of the successful life the adulterous woman went on to live but I bet she had a real positive impact on the world after her encounter. Grace Ministry offers this opportunity to every woman they touch and to do and be like Jesus is the ultimate lifework.
This Christian missionary is filling a space in our society that is void of care in our community. There are persons of the sex trade who are returned to the streets from jails with no caring person or organization to help them to find their way to a responsible life. When they are released with no money, clothes or any way to support themselves they have no choice but to return to their old habits in order to survive.
Grace Ministry will actually pick them up and find a place for them to live and at the same time continue to work with them to find the kind of employment that will support a decent lifestyle which would include education, social and job skills. They make sure they have food and anything else they need to as they are starting a new life.
All the loving people involved in this mission take no salary or any other compensation, as of a matter of fact other than donations, much money comes out of their own pocket so of course they can only so much. All money is directed to the care of these victims. Their success rate is 98% because these persons are at a point in their lives that they want relief from their previous lifestyle and Grace Ministry will work with them one on one until they can live on their own merit.
I was first introduced to Grace Ministry through one of the founders, I could see that she was a very special lady and I wanted to get to know her. I began to explore the ministry that she claimed was changing lives, pulling women out of prostitution, helping them to combat drug addiction and alcoholism and I wanted to be a part of that ministry. I began asking around and found that my gifts could be used to further the mission so I offered to help and have since volunteered and been a part of the advisory committee. I am seeing first hand how Grace Ministry is a ministry of HOPE, love and kindness! I love this ministry!
