Each visit is so different.
Last night was a time of reconnecting with a lot of friends from the past four years. One lady that I recognized in a brothel waved at me to come over to her. So, I walked across the hallway to her. I knew her from our visits 2-3 years ago; she works in the same brothel she always has. There is usually blaring music, so sometimes we have to figure out how to talk over the music. The lady waved me over and said, “I heard you guys are offering sewing classes to learn how to make purses.” I was so excited to tell her about the possibility of Suti Sana, because we have been praying for new girls to come for training. I was also excited because she told me she had been working for years and wants to leave to the brothels. She came today to celebrate Mother’s Day. So, I hope and pray my friend keeps coming to the center.
