Setting The Captives Free

All of our women and children experienced extremely traumatic events in their childhoods, some things too difficult for us to even imagine and our prayer is that through vocational and formal education, discipleship training, and prayer-filled loving care in a family atmosphere they will be equipped, healed, and set free to become all that God has in mind for them to be. Then in God’s timing they can be agents of God’s freedom in the lives of others. The vision is that they will be “bestowed with a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of His splendor.” Isaiah 61:3

Ministerio Jerico

In a Nutshell…

Jericho Ministries began as a result of a desire from God placed in the heart of a missionary to reach out to those trapped in prostitution. The ministry began very simply with evening visits to a high prostitution area in Tegucigalpa, Honduras where coffee and truths about freedom in Jesus were shared while sitting together on the curbside. Once the women began to trust Christ with their lives, it became clear that they needed help finding jobs which would allow them to work with dignity and integrity. Out of that need was born the sewing workshop of Jericho. The “rescued women” were discipled in the ministry and learned job skills while participating in the rescue of their friends still trapped in prostitution. Later the increasing burden to reach their children became the impetus for starting our schools and family homes with the vision to enable these children to lead lives that glorify God, thus breaking the generational chains of prostitution, sexual abuse, and various addictions that have plagued their families for generations.
