Our mission: Confronting sexual abuse & exploitation and helping women discover their true identity in Christ!
Sexual abuse & exploitation is all too prevalent in our society and in our world. From childhood sexual abuse to human trafficking, this dark spirit traps its victims in a web of trauma that is both subtle and bold and results in the loss of identity and worth. Combining Biblical truths with therapeutic principles allows us to experience healing in our painful areas, gain deeper understanding of ourselves through insight and ultimately take hold of the freedom God desires for all.
Women who were sexually abused and exploited are worshiping in churches and living in communities across the nation secretly longing for the very hope, love and healing we teach in our sermons and bible studies. Alimayu Ministries partners with local churches and ministries to offer hope and healing to the women in their congregations and the communities they serve with a goal of empowering those affected by sexual abuse & exploitation to positively impact their families and communities and break the cycle of brokenness. In addition to counseling, we offer our Restoring the Seed series.
Statistics show that 1 out of 3 women have experienced some form of sexual abuse. Despite this alarming frequency, many women still feel isolated and alone in their experiences. Sexual abuse is designed by the enemy to steal our seeds of greatness. His primary objective is to convince us that we are not chosen by anyone, let alone by God. He tries hard to get us to believe that we do not matter to God and that we have no purpose on this earth. The Restoring the Seed book guides the reader through a journey of healing from the many effects of sexual abuse. Enhanced by scripture studies and therapeutic tools, the reader is informed, encouraged and given skills to enable them to apply the principles learned to daily life in a practical ways. Healing begins today!
