|Rahab Refuge Ministries (RRMI) has recently had multiple opportunities to present our mission to several local churches. We are grateful to the welcoming pastors and congregations of Friendship Baptist Church (Rome), Christian Church of Charleston (Sprakers), Seneca Bible Baptist Church (Seneca Falls), Crosspoint Church (Whitesboro), Living Faith Bible Church (Sauquoit), and Heritage Baptist Church (Canastota). Please consider hosting a RRMI presentation at your local church by contacting Christine@rahabrefugeministries.com.|
RRMI has been actively recruiting volunteers and donations for upcoming events. We would like to thank the Oneida Wal-Mart for graciously donating over 580 white t-shirts for our first annual 5k Refuge Run/2k Freedom Walk! We are also grateful for receiving gently-used furniture to place in our future “House of Hope” and a 32-foot camper donated by Friendship Baptist Church families and a projector, screen, and stand donated by Seneca Bible Baptist Church.
|Pray for Rahab Refuge Ministries specific requests: |
– Secure locations to host our first 5k Refuge Run/2K Freedom Walk and Golf Tournament fundraisers;
– Local Churches to develop a passion to support RRMI on a monthly basis;
– Location for our “House of Hope” and future RRMI Offices and Store Front;
– Raise community support to establish our 1st years budget.
|August 23, 2021 is an International Day for the Remembrance of the Slave Trade and its Abolition. While many associate this day with a solemn memory of slavery during previous centuries, we cannot ignore the men, women, and children who are enslaved by their captors in a modern-day labor and sex trafficking crisis. Please considering financially supporting Rahab Refuge Ministries as we seek to restore, reconcile, and equip trafficked survivors for life.|
|The NYS Inter-agency Task Force on Human Trafficking Annual Report statistics for 2019 reveal: 65% of all confirmed victims of trafficking cases in NY were sex trafficking victims; 77% involved adults above the age of 18 and 85% of confirmed victims in NY were female survivors.|
