Pray for Annie and Jeff Dieselberg

June 23, 2009 PrayerCall

Annie works with NightLight Design Co. Ltd., a business-as-mission, which employs and empowers women affected by the sex trade in Bangkok. Jeff teaches urban ministry with a team of Thai pastors at three Bangkok seminaries and is a chaplain at NightLight (NL).

 They write: African women have been increasing on the streets of Bangkok the last few years and our prayers for breakthrough in rescuing the trafficked ones, have been answered! NL continues to grow and continues to struggle with the challenges of growing pains. Rejoice with us as you read of the victories, and pray with us as you read of the challenges. Your prayers are breaking ground for victories!

Two trafficked women from East Africa were rescued and sent home after learning jewelry skills to equip them on their return. It was exciting to see some of our NL women taking the time to teach skills to the women and to see them sharing their lives with one another.

 In the last month more than 10 women have applied for work. 5 women who left last year have returned asking for their jobs back and we have hired 4 new women as well.

 Two women accepted Christ this past month.

NightLight's church, Song Sawan (Send the Light), celebrated one year with 100 in attendance and a beautiful service of great worship and fellowship.
