From the program with whom we partner in China that crafted this elegant necklace, Eden Ministry:
"Su Su’s smile is contagious the day her family and Eden staff gather to celebrate her baby’s 100 day birthday. In that moment, the journey of faith that brought her here feels so much nearer than the day her suffering began. At eleven, she left school for a factory job. However, she didn’t earn enough to support her family. So she was excited when her boss told her about a better job in China. The young girl trusted his promises but found herself living in the nightmare of being sold over the border as a bride. After being locked in a hotel room for days, she escaped. Anti-trafficking officials helped her return to Myanmar, where she learned she was pregnant at Eden. Just like the night she hid under a tree to escape her husband’s family, Su Su knew this was another moment to change her story. She embraced counseling and started a job making jewelry. We hope the Walk in Faith Collection inspires you to step out in faith and take action to change your story and those of trafficking victims like Su Su as you share their stories and seek justice."
18K gold-plated stainless steel chain and semi-circle pendant with mustard seed engraving. 19" with 2" extension chain.
Where this product came from
Teams of women walk through the red-light districts of China offering words of kindness, encouragement, and hope. Returning time and again, they build relationships with the women they meet. Knowing that most did not choose the lives they are living, the outreach teams offer these women a chance to start again. At the China Outreach safehouse, they receive shelter, medical checkups and treatment, crisis pregnancy counseling, vocational training, and employment. China Outreach’s programs also extend beyond its own borders. If a woman cannot come to them, our partners meet her right where she is—on the streets, inside a brothel, or even in a prison cell. They build relationships with the mafia, pimps, and brothel owners, working to bring about a change of heart. In places where women are deceived into lives of darkness, our partners bring light and hope. Your purchase of their product helps these women find safety, healing, and the promise of a better life.
Xiao Fang came to the city full of hope. With her new job, she could finally support her family back in the village. She stepped off the bus, eager to begin her work at a large supermarket. But her excitement soon turned to horror when, hours later, she woke from a drug-induced sleep, trapped within the walls of a brothel. The job offer had been a ruse. She could do nothing but wait, trembling, as her captors auctioned off her virginity to the highest bidder. Just when Xiao Fang had given up hope, the brothel was raided by the police. Thinking she was finally rescued, she instead found herself treated as a criminal and thrown into prison. Xiao Fang’s true rescue came when our partners visited the prison. They brought her to live at their shelter, finally giving her safety and a family she could trust. Now Xiao Fang is slowly finding healing, working with dignity, and supporting her family back home.
