It all began with a night visit to the slums of India in September 2008.
At a time of unrest and persecution, only a select group of the India Ministry Team could take the risk of walking through the slums. We were led to a small, dimly lit shack with a blanket for a door.
We were introduced to a family who had recently lost their only son. As we all crowded into their 4 x 6 ft. home, God used one hug and a prayer to bring emotional healing to a grieving mother; and in the name of Jesus, their little girl, Konica, received healing for her limp arm. This proved to be more than just a visit, but rather a Divine Appointment of the Lord.
Two years later, during the ministry trip to India in February 2010, when Sue inquired about the well-being of Konica, she was informed that Konica’s parents, financially unable to feed and care for their daughter, had sold her. However, God had spoken to local Pastors to intervene and buy her back.
Later that year, on May 31st, 2010, while visiting the United States, those local Indian Pastors asked to meet with Sue Willis. It was then that one of them shared the burden of her heart concerning an intense desire to build a rescue home for little girls in the slums of New Delhi. Konica’s story was revisited and the prophetic word and vision that was proclaimed back in February over the slums were confirmed. Instantly, Sue sensed that God was calling her and the Touching The Hem of His Garment Ministries, Inc.™ to partner with the Indian Pastors to see this God-inspired vision fulfilled, planting a rescue home for young girls in the slums of India.
And so, the “Redemption Home Project” was born, with a mission of rescuing little girls before they are sold into human trafficking and the sex trade of India. It will be at this rescue home that these little ones will be redeemed – spared the hopelessness of a life destined to slavery, begging and the brothels.
Sue immediately began to contact others, understanding from the beginning that, although Touching the Hem of His Garment Ministries, Inc.™ was called upon to pioneer this project, it would only be through the combined efforts of many churches, businesses, ministries, organizations and individuals that sufficient funds would be raised to bring the Redemption Home Project to completion. Within nine short months, land was purchased and construction was well under way. It has been such a beautiful thing to witness the coming together of such varied ministries, joining our hearts as one in this Godly cause. Thanks to all those who partnered with us in this endeavor!
Today, the Redemption Home consists of four floors with over 5,000 square feet and currently houses 25 girls ages 4-12. It also includes housing for the House Parents, a Medical Clinic, Counseling Room, Multi-purpose Hall, Prayer Hall, Life Skills Room where the little girls are taught a trade, Play Area, Kitchen and Dining Hall, Laundry Facility, Bathrooms and Showers, Guest Room, Offices, etc.
Now that the Home is completed, we still need monthly financial support in the vital area of Child Sponsorship.
We ask that you prayerfully consider partnering with us for this very real need in our world today. We thank you in advance for considering the Redemption Home as a place to sow your financial seeds. Your giving will go a long way in making a difference in the lives of these desperately needy little girls of India.
It is the desire of the Abundant Life Ministry Center to continue to help establish additional Redemption Homes both here and abroad as God leads.
