IMB representative experiences change of heart

JOHANNESBURG, South Africa (BP, TAB) — International Mission Board (IMB) representative Martha Richards experienced a change of heart after a conversation with a pimp in Johannesburg, South Africa. Richards said her anger toward the pimps is “overwhelming” due to the women she has met who have suffered as prostitutes. Jesus’ command to love His people, no matter what they have done, is changing Richard’s heart. “Their sins are no worse than mine, and Jesus died for them as much as He did for me,” she said. Richards now strives to learn how to love the pimps and share the gospel with them. “Imagine the influence [the pimp] could have for the glory of God.”
