RESTORE THE ABUSED
Rescuing a child is just the first step toward recovery. The journey that follows requires much healing and restoration – rebuilding a life emotionally, mentally, spiritually and physically.
There are literally millions of children enslaved in the sex-trade or who have been sexually exploited in our world today. And each child has a story that reveals the damaging effects of sexual abuse. Some children have been fortunate enough to be rescued with only a relatively short time in the industry, while others have been trapped for many years.
Regardless of the amount of time spent in a brothel or in an abusive situation, these children are broken and wounded and need to experience the healing touch of God and His unconditional love.
Armor of God Rescue has a mandate from God to see these children healed and restored from their past abuse.
The Bible says, “The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is upon me, for the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to comfort the broken-hearted and to proclaim that captives will be released and prisoners will be freed. He has sent me to tell those who mourn that the time of the Lord’s favor has come, and with it, the day of God’s anger against their enemies. To all who mourn in Israel, he will give a crown of beauty for ashes, a joyous blessing instead of mourning, festive praise instead of despair” (Isaiah 61:1-3a NLT).
God has uniquely equipped and qualified Armor of God Rescue to help bring healing and wholeness to these children, and because of this, they can smile again. They have a chance to dream and fulfill their God-given destinies.
Through our aftercare programs, children are given tender medical attention and helped with any diseases they may have contracted while in slavery. In addition, they receive any other medical care needed along their journey to recovery.
We also provide Godly counsel from our trained counselors. Our amazing staff help kids navigate the difficult waters of their past with the Truth of God’s Word and tangibly express the love of God to them on a daily basis.
A proper education and vocational training are key components for successful reintegration back into society.
Not only are these children and young adults offered medical care and counseling, they are brought to a “rescue home” where they can live peacefully, eat nutritious meals, get a valuable education and play interactive games with other children. In addition, when they reach a certain age, they can learn a skilled trade like sewing, jewelry making, hairstyling, waitressing or cooking.
A proper education and vocational training are key components for successful reintegration back into society. These tools will help equip these young adults to earn a good living and become self-sufficient, keeping them safe from a life of prostitution.
Like all of us, children need unconditional love. At Armor of God Rescue we go out of our way to make every child feel loved, valued and esteemed. We also give them the opportunity to go to church if they so choose. Many of them see God’s faithfulness through answered prayer and hear of His amazing power through personal testimonies, which in turn, compels a large number of them to enter a personal relationship with Jesus Christ!
Because of all our faithful supporters, we’re able to bring freedom, hope and restoration to hundreds of children once enslaved in the sex-trade industry.
