It feels a little surreal, but I am home! It’s bittersweet, and I have much to share with you.
Leaving the women I built relationships with was one of the toughest things I had to do. I was blessed with the opportunity to watch them rebuild and grow and begin to start their next chapter with newfound hope, humility, and a confidence that only our Lord can provide. It was an honour and privilege for me to walk beside each and every one of them, and although some moments were filled with pain, the beauty that was born from it was truly unexplainable.
My time at REST was another moment where I witnessed the overwhelming grace of God. REST, as a mission field, highlighted in great detail, the brokenness on this side of Heaven. However, with our God, nothing is impossible, and the work that is being done through the REST ministry is a testament of God’s unconditional love and never-ending promises.
My biggest take away from my time in Seattle working at REST is that
God can work at any time, with anyone, in any way. Our Lord meets us exactly where we are, and provides us with something that only He can.
Serving at REST solidified my passion and desire to be an agent of change in the sex-trafficking industry.
In a few weeks, I have the opportunity to hold an information night. On July 21st at 6:30 pm, I will be speaking more on my experience and the mission field of human trafficking. It will take place at Harvest Bible Chapel—500 Great Lakes Blvd Oakville, ON L6L 6X9. I will be sharing my experience in Seattle at Rest, and there will also be a question and answer period.
I am grateful for the goodness of the Lord, as He provided for my needs in Seattle. Although I have returned to Canada, I am still support raising 36% ($5,920) of my overall funds. If you would like to GIVE, please follow the link below: https://hopeoakville.ca/support-jacqueline-eboh/
I would also ask that you please continue to pray for every woman, child, and person that has been trafficked or is affected by the trafficking industry in the United States, here at home in Canada, and all over the world. Zechariah 7:10-11 tells us to, “administer true justice, show mercy and compassion to one another. Do not oppress the widow or the fatherless, the immigrant or the poor.” While there still is a lot of work to be done, every prayer, dollar, and act of serving brings a piece of His Kingdom to those far away from it.
