Restoration of Families

Project Purpose is committed to the restoration of families. We pray for transformation as we journey with them toward wholeness and the restoration of their families.

Linda
 

In 2001, we met Linda and her friends during street ministry. Even after several years of ministering to Linda both on the street and in her home, Linda felt unable to leave prostitution. In the interim, she had two children. After the weaning of her second child, Linda brought both children to the Transformation Center. While she could not believe the message for herself, Linda did not want her children exposed to her life style and its subsequent dangers. Now nine years later, after working with Linda and the children, 2019 will mark the advent of their being reunited as a family. Linda is supporting herself as a small business entrepreneur selling bras and is confident about her ability to raise her children in a safe and comfortable environment.
