Begun in 2009 in Nantes under the name “Project Rahab”, the ministry among female victims of human trafficking also has a team based in Paris.
The current team is made up of 13 people spread over two areas in Paris. They out at night to find these 'princesses', in order to share the good news, to pray and to praise God with them. During the day, they support them in their administrative needs – social or other. “Our priority however remains spiritual follow-up,” explains the team leader.
“It’s also on our heart to provide training for churches who want to start such a ministry, and to help those 'princesses' who’ve left prostitution behind, or who are in the process of becoming attached to a church,” she continues. “Even when they’ve come out of prostitution, we try to keep in close contact with them. For example, one of these 'princesses' we’d helped two years ago came to tell us she’d been granted her papers, and was now married. Even if not all of the stories have such an extraordinary outcome, and even if it’s sometimes difficult to maintain contact with those who had left France, this selection of stories give hope to others, and encourage us to persevere”.
The team pray that God’s will be done in the lives of these 'princesses', and that they will be truly liberated by meeting Jesus. They hope that the enemy will not be allowed to destroy God's work, and that new people will join their team. People who will commit themselves to join the team in a variety of ways: as they go out, either regularly or at set times; getting alongside individuals in praise, prayer, providing administrative and social help, in artistic activities or visits to museums, etc.
In short: the harvest is great and more workers are needed.
