Story number 3 for 6 Aug 2002

By August 6, 2002

(USA)–A joint effort of state and local government along with ministries will reach some of the most rejected people on earth. Police in the city of Grand Rapids, Michigan will partner with local ministries to reach street prostitutes with help, both physically and spiritually. “Prostitution is a malady which has an almost one hundred percent connection to drug and alcohol addiction.” Reverend Thomas Layman is executive Director of Mel Trotter Ministries, which will partner with the city to reach prostitutes with social services such as treatment for addiction, child care, counseling and the gospel. “Sometime as prostitutes enter a community meal, it is right then and there they can talk with a born-again believer who says “Jesus has made all the difference in my life, and he can make a difference in yours and that will be the turning point for her.” A grant from the state is enabling the program to move forward.
