Believe to receive – sharing the hope of Easter

In Central Europe, OM EAST partners and OM workers go out each week to speak to ladies in brothels and on the street. During Easter, they have planned special outreaches to reach more women, bringing them gifts, together with a leaflet produced specifically for individuals in red light areas.

The leaflet, entitled Maria, was designed by OM EAST and written by an outreach worker. The fictional story of a woman called Maria was inspired by the life of Mary Magdalene. It describes her brokenness and how, one day, she met Jesus Christ who told of a new kingdom where anyone can become a child of God through faith in Him. Maria expresses the wonderful change in her life as she experienced her Saviour’s acceptance, forgiveness, love and comfort.

“I was thinking about the verse in Matthew chapter 21 where it says those trapped in prostitution will enter the God’s kingdom ahead of others because they believed,” reflected an OM EAST worker. “This gives such hope that women today would also put their faith in Jesus and receive new life in Him!”

The Maria leaflet has been translated into nine languages, including Romanian, Hungarian, Bulgarian and Chinese. OM EAST will print a total of 4,700 copies to help outreach workers offer hope to hundreds of ladies this Easter.

Please pray many women read the ‘Maria’ leaflet and believe in Jesus and His promises. Please pray they would trust their Saviour to provide them with a way out of prostitution. Please pray individuals receive the healing, restoration and freedom only Jesus can bring.  

“Jesus said to them, ‘I tell you the truth, the tax collectors and the prostitutes are entering the kingdom of God ahead of you. For John came to you to show you the way of righteousness, and you did not believe him, but the tax collectors and the prostitutes did.” – Matthew 21:31a-32a (NIV)

OM EAST’s literature and media ministry produces high quality print and digital media in over 25 languages. Always working with partners, they seek to share the gospel, strengthen churches and bring hope to people groups throughout Eurasia.
