How to make Mumbai free from Prostitution!

With a great burden I am writing this blog.Many of my friends know that whenever I visit Mumbai I used to visit the Red light areas along with Bro Vedanayagam (Living Water Mission) .This time First day We went to Grant Road along with A missionary and there was a tremendous response from the CSWs.Many of them came forward and we prayed for them also.A day after we planned to visit Jamuna Mansion and as per our schedule we reached there by 1.45PM.To my surprise I saw the place full of customers and CSWs. we went till 2nd floor without problem but they were all disturbed and asked us to leave the building. only very few wanted to hear the good news.With pain and grief we left the place.We have all the rights to go to the nearest Police Station and lodge a complaint but then the Police fellows are heavily bribed and It is not easy that way.
We all know that Dance Bars were closed in Mumbai during April 2005.This step was taken from the Govt to save the youth, But the same Govt ignores SEX sold in Mumbai openly. Nobody is bothered about someone dying of AIDS and thousands are taking the deadly virus to their Hometown.
The Scripture says that 'The wages of SIN is Death.'
As a Citizen of India or As a Child of God How you react?

Here are some questians I want you to reply so the post can be sent to the govt authorities.Please forward it and post it wherever you can.

1.Do you know any CSW who left the trade?
2.Ideas to bring them out of the trade?
3.Is there any legal way to stop the trade?
4.Do you want to see Mumbai free from prostitution?
5.Do you want any further details about the ministry that work with CSW?
6.Do you want to join us in this fight?
Do answer by way of comment

Now then, tell my servant David, "This is what the Lord Almighty says: I took you from the pasture and from following the flock to be ruler over My people Israel." - 2 Samuel 7:8

Have you ever heard someone say, "He is a self-made millionaire"? They are stating that this person accomplished everything through his own efforts. His achievements were a result of his hard work and street smarts.

David was nearing the end of his life. The prophet Nathan was responding to David's idea to build a temple where the Ark of the Covenant would stay. God reminded David of his roots and where He had brought him. God took David from the fields of pasturing sheep to pastoring a nation. God reminded David that He cut off all of David's enemies. (David never lost a battle.)

Have you ever felt tempted to look at your accomplishments with pride as if you were the reason for your success? Have you ever thought your prosperity was due to your ingenuity? Has your material success been a testimony to others that God is the ruler of all aspects of your life, even the material side?

Joseph's greatest test was not his temptation to be bitter against his brothers. It wasn't the sexual temptation that came inside Potiphar's house. It wasn't even the discouragement of years of imprisonment for being wrongfully accused. It was the temptation of prosperity and ownership. Once he was elevated, he was given choices that he never had before. It was totally up to him as to which choice he would make. Stewardship reveals what we believe about God and ourselves.

Not every man can carry a full cup. Sudden elevation frequently leads to pride and a fall. The most exacting test of all to survive is prosperity. -Oswald Chambers

Do you have a proper understanding of who you are? Do you understand that it is God who has given you the ability to work and achieve? He is the source of all good things. Ask God today if your life models this belief.
