I recently found some really cool ministries and added their links to the "Web Pages I Like" section of this blog.
The first one is Made in the Streets. Made in the Streets works with street children in Nairobi, Kenya. Here is part of the story of one of the young men. I heard about them from some friends who are doing a missions intern in Kenya. They were very impressed with this ministry.
The next is Mercy Ships. Cruise ships outfitted as hospitals sail the coasts of impoverished countries. The doctors on board remove facial tumors, perform eye surgeries, and most importanty give people hope in the name of Jesus. I heard of this ministry from a missionary to Benin. He saw first hand how these teams of doctors change people's lives.
Love in Action and Living Hope both deal with overcoming sexual sin. My mother-in-law works for Love in Action Memphis. She works as a counselor with wives of sex addicts and people struggling with same sex attraction. Living Hope deals specifically with overcoming same sex attraction.
And last, but not least, are New Song Ministry and New Friends New Life. These ministries help women come out of the darkness of sex work and into the light of Jesus.
So check them out, and if you feel called, get involved.
