Church helps prostitutes start over

Walnut Hill Church in Bethel is helping prostitutes in Bangladesh:

"When you look at the example of Jesus," said the Rev. Clive Calver, the church's senior pastor. "He always gave people the chance of a new life."

The girls and women work in a village called Banisanta, on the banks of the Mongla River in Bangladesh. They range from age 13 to their early 30s, says Mark Munshi, a native Bangladeshi who heads the Christian Service Society. Many of them are 15, 16, 17 years old. Most don't want to be there, he said. "The women want to get out." Munshi said extreme poverty, or in some cases force, brought them and keep them in Banisanta.
