Day 2: Unveiling Rahab’s Rope

Broken Bangle Cuff $18

Broken Bangle Cuff from India, $18
This bracelet is made from broken pieces of glass. For Rahab’s Rope, it represents the shattered lives of the women who, through the power of Christ Jesus, find beauty in their lives and a new start.

In Atlanta, Georgia, visiting friends, I met a young woman involved in a ministry called Rahab’s Rope.  I never forgot the name.  Rahab’s Rope seeks to set women in India free from the sex trafficking industry by providing them with a safe house, meals, and vocational training through the love of Christ.  Best of all, these women have the opportunity to hear about Jesus and experience the everlasting freedom of living in His Kingdom.

Hygiene Kit $35, Rahab's Rope

For $35 you can give a hygiene kit to a woman trying to escape the sex trafficking industry.

Credibility of the mission: Rahab’s Rope is a member of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA).  Their credentials can be viewed here.  For more information on this ministry, you can visit their website at http://www.rahabsrope.com/, including their mission statement, updates, and audio/video about the ministry.  Donations (which the IRS considers different than buying gift items from the shop) are tax deductible as a qualified 501 (C) (3).

You can

help this ministry in five big ways:

Wherever you are at in life, there is something you can do to help this ministry if God has placed it on your heart.  There are five big ways to help out–so there’s no excuse, Christians!

(Why the name Rahab’s Rope?  Read Joshua 2 and Joshua 6:1-19 to find out.)

It was by faith that Rahab the prostitute was not destroyed with the people in her city who refused to obey God. For she had given a friendly welcome to the spies. (Hebrews 11:31, NLT)

Salmon was the father of Boaz (whose mother was Rahab). Boaz was the father of Obed (whose mother was Ruth). Obed was the father of Jesse. . . Jacob was the father of Joseph, the husband of Mary.

Mary gave birth to Jesus, who is called the Messiah.

(Matthew 1:5, 16, NLT)

  1. This is a wonderful and powerful ministry organization.  Not only are they freeing these women from the worst kind of slavery, but teaching them skills, giving them a livelihood and a new life as a new creation!
