After three years of serving, learning, and walking alongside victims of trafficking, we started 2019 positioned to grow. We served more women this past year than ever before, launched more graduates back into independence than ever before, interviewed and referred more women applying to our program than ever before. Naomi’s House went from the infancy stage to a full-fledged organization, serving, hiring, training, and launching leaders.
Our vision has not wavered: we exist because every woman who suffers from commercial sexual exploitation deserves a new start. Now more than ever, we know what it takes to provide that new start, and as we reflect once again on God’s goodness to the women in our program, we have thankful hearts for His unending love for them.
One woman said, “Since being at Naomi’s House, I have grown in ways I never imagined possible. I was angry and filled with hatred. [They] taught me about grace and compassion…the thing I’m most grateful for is that [NH] taught me about Jesus. I wouldn’t be where I am now in my faith if it weren’t for Naomi’s House.”
As we enter into 2020, growth continues to be our theme, and I’m thankful for the strategic way our team thinks and plans. We are thrilled to launch our newest program: NH4. This program is for our graduates who have successfully completed our Residential Program and are looking for a continued partnership. Our goal is to raise $100,000 by January, which would allow us to fully implement NH4 for six women in 2020. Would you consider giving this year-end to help us launch this new program?
Our continued prayer as we move into 2020 is inspired by Colossians 2:6-7:
“So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.”
Our fervent prayer for the women of NH is that we would see their growth continue as they live with their lives rooted in Christ, built up in Him, strengthened by faith, overflowing with thankfulness.
Merry Christmas and New Year blessings to you from all of us at Naomi’s House!
