Thanks Seth. I pray the problem the book addresses somehow leads to solutions which are as you know more elusive. Shalom…
Priceless lives of defenseless girls
aged girls, the plot is set in motion. Before he knows it, Daniels is drawn deeper into the dark and seamy world of sex-slave trade. He’s horrified by what he sees, yet knows that he has to do something.
I felt so completely burdened. These were Joy’s
last 3 days in Thailand. The last 3 days she would be able to breathe fresh
air. The last 3 days of what ironically seemed like freedom. Even though she
was still bound by her boss working in these bars selling herself every day. I
would sit and stare at her wondering if she even knew what she was about to get
herself into. Trading her current hell in for a deeper, hotter level of hell she’s never experienced.
She said she knew. She was terrified but couldn’t turn back now because they had all of her information. They had her family’s
information and if she backed out, they would not only go after her but her
entire family. She was trapped. And she hadn’t even left yet.The fear in her bones and the terror in her eyes were enough
to speak a thousand words. She didn’t have to say anything. Oh, She knew.
It was almost surreal when we all hugged her as she left the
house. Here I was hugging a lady who was currently living a life of abuse…only
to be greatly amplified within days. A life that was about to be completely
imprisoned. How could I let go!? Jesus, what am I supposed to do!? “You keep fighting for her.”
force him to choose between involvement or passive indifference…”you keep fighting for them.”
sometimes all a person needs to hope is one knd word, one person who ares…one person to keep fighting for them.
thank you that you and your team mobilize, equip,and send out prayerful people as change makers. love what you and the aim staff do.
