MCML Podcast E66: Hunter & Red Light District

It has been a year and a half since Hunter has been to India due to the pandemic but his heart continues to beat for missions as, with the wisdom and insight given to him by our Lord, his next step is now seminary. He has all the trust in God that the knowledge he learned during his time in India will be used to further His goal and His calling in Hunter’s life for missions.


During his mission trips to India, Hunter has been to the red light district of India in Mumbai. For him, the people in the red light district were people engulfed in darkness, void of any hope. They sell their bodies to provide for themselves and their families. The only piece of hope they could muster was the hope that someone would take their offer and pay them. There was no love in it, simply a physical and monetary transaction. He could see that none of them wanted the life they have now. They were there because they had no other means of providing for both themselves and their families.


But he still believes that there is hope for everyone in the red light district: for the women, for their children and for their families. It is because Jesus didn’t shun nor shame any prostitute. Instead, he welcomed them with open arms and guided them towards God’s love. That is why Hunter urges us to go hang out with these people and show them God’s love. Even if it’s hard, even if you don’t want to see it, even if you don’t want to experience the darkness or even if you hate the fact that people go there, not the women themselves, but the people who are taking advantages of these women, come and see them, talk to them, show them that God cares and He loves them as well.


They feel trapped there. They didn’t ask to do this. And they deserve to have hope. They deserve to feel even just a glimmer of light in the darkness surrounding the entire district. Especially now that no one is going to the red light district because of the pandemic. We can show them that God cares and He hasn’t abandoned them. We can tell them that no matter how hard things are right now, no matter what happens, God will be there for them no matter what.


That is why we invite you to share the love of Jesus with vulnerable women. By giving them a month of groceries, your generosity not only blesses the women and their families but allows the church to make Christ known to them. $25 provides groceries for a whole month and each of these packets comes with the proclamation: Jesus loves you, Jesus is here for you.
