A few weeks ago I posted a blog on adoption of children. Read some heart breaking news related to unwanted babies in the link below (http://globalnation.inquirer.net/news/breakingnews/view/20100917-292845/OFW-group-calls-for-help-for-babys-mother).
This is not an isolated case! This has happened before — read about another recent case (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/worldnews/article-1293167/Indian-woman-gives-birth-plane–tries-flush-baby-toilet.html).
Surely many migrants, especially women are vulnerarable to sexual harrashment, sexual abuse, unfortunate heart-breaking relationships with local people or other migrant workers.
As you read the article below, I covet your prayers for the women in the diaspora. The International Organisation for Migration reports that there are an estimated 214 million migrants in the world today; 49% of migrants worldwide are women.
Pray that the many victims of abuses would come to know hope and New Life in Jesus Christ; and that the many faithful Kingdom workers among the diaspora women would introduce many, even their local employers, to the Master of All — Jesus Christ.
Diaspora Missions is about the Church on the Move taking the Whole Gospel of Christ to the Whole World, even to those people in diaspora.
