These are the miraculous stories of two brothel madams who have been saved by the love of Christ.
Maya was brought to the red-light districts at around age 11, before the age of puberty. Although she did not want to be there, she was forced to stay in the brothel. One day, she met a man who fed her dreams of a better future if she married him. However, six months into their marriage, her husband sold her back into the brothel where she was forced to become a madam, responsible for procuring girls from Bangladesh and other places.
After she heard the Gospel, it took her 10 years to finally accept Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior. She became a part of the Hilltop of Hope community, where she was baptized.
Padma, now 55 years old, worked as a madam for 25 years. When she heard the Good News of Jesus, she forsake prostitution and started making a living doing odd jobs as a daily wage worker for 10 years. During the COVID pandemic, she was offered 1 lakh ( equivalent of $120,000 USD) multiple times to continue as a madam during this time of crisis, however she declined and overcame this great temptation. Even though she was out of the red-light district, she still faced judgment from the church she attended. However, when she came to Hilltop of Hope, she discovered her true identity as the beloved daughter of the Most High God, who covered her in grace.
These two worthy women received baptism with a deep desire to live a holy life. Let us continue praying for them for we know the battle that lies ahead.
