Women’s Side by Side
The purpose of this monthly group is to provide a safe place for women, whose husbands are on our program and are experiencing the effects of indecent and obscene material accessed on digital devices. We specifically assist in the area where this has impacted them the most; in their marital relationship and family.
This group is meant to be supportive and educational in function, and is not meant to serve as a “therapy” group. This group is also not meant to be a “bible study” or “prayer” group although all materials are Christ centered and biblical in nature.
It is a place to learn about sexual wholeness and receive information on what is normal to expect in their own responses, support and fellowship to help alleviate isolation and shame around the issue, and encouragement to take initial steps to facilitate their own health and safety.
The focus of the group is allowing the members to invite God into the process of their healing and restoration. For some, this is a natural part of their already Christian walk. For others, God may seem very far off or not even real. We will seek God together, as group members are able and comfortable.
This is an outreach to women trapped in the web of the sex industry.
Joshua 2:12 “Now therefore, I beg you, swear to me by the LORD, since I have shown you kindness, that you also will show kindness to my father’s house, and give me a true token.
Many women involved in Sex Trafficking yearn for a better life. However, they often feel trapped by the past and by lack of job skills and education. They are ashamed of their lives, and believe that most employers would not hire them. They often do not have a high school diploma and have neither interview skills nor clothing appropriate for the workplace. Thus, they know of no other way to earn a living for themselves and their children.
Often these women were abused as children. Many grew up in a home with no father and a mother who was verbally or physically abusive. They may have deep, lingering scars from years of alcohol and drug abuse. These scars are often both physical and emotional. Their lives are chaotic in almost every respect. Often they have children who suffer because of this chaos.
Rahab’s Token is an outreach of LICCV that helps women trapped in the darkness of the sexually oriented industry come out into to the light.
It is our goal to assist these women as they restore their lives through discipling, counseling and mentoring; financial, medical, educational and legal assistance.
We intend to provide basic, transitional living expenses while these women participate in a mentoring program individually designed to bring “God into lives that need His healing power.”
