Pray for Mary

Mary (not real name) arrived at the shelter several months ago, weighing only 58 pounds covered with wounds from those who had abused her. She slowly began to recover from the nightmare of sex trafficking,   learned to trust our staff and open up about her pain. Mary gained weight and grew in confidence. ...Sadly, it’s still not an easy road for Mary. Just this week she made some unwise choices that put her back in touch with a man who has the power to return her to the world of bondage. ...Ask God to shepherd Mary’s heart as she walks the razor’s edge between life and death. Our prayers are the most powerful weapon in this day to day struggle." Written by a director of a shelter. 

One of the many ways you can help human trafficking survivors is to support families like the Farrans who, as you give to them & pray for them, will be your hands & feet. For more info visit -

International Justice Mission Rescue Caught on Camera

So you can understand this video better I need to explain... 

WARNING: Written content IS disturbing

Boys & girls not willing to sell themselves for sex are raped repeatedly or gang raped and beaten. Until they can be controlled by their capture. Until the pimps can tell they have broken their spirit. Yet once broken it doesn't stop...they are still being abused in every other way as well mentally, verbally, physically etc. This type of room of torture is what IJM found below. The good side is 6 young women were rescued from this secret hiding spot and are now FREE!!!!!!! Thanks to:

Lost Boys of Sudan now a movie called The Good Lie

I recommend this documentary Lost Boys of Sudan

Now it has been made into a drama movie The Good Lie 

"The film is based on the true story of the “Lost Boys of Sudan,” tens of thousands of young men who fled to refugee camps during the Second Sudanese Civil War (1983-2005). More than 3,000 of these “lost boys” were given the opportunity to come to the United States in the early ‘00s, in what has been described as the largest resettlement of its kind in American history. After the events of September 11, the refugee program was put on hold for several months, as referenced in the Good Lie trailer."

I'm looking forward to seeing the sequel to the Lost Boys 

Have you seen these docus? What did you think? Who wants to go see The Good Lie with me once it's in theaters?!!

A $1 a Day is Life Changing for an Orphan


        You can’t do much with a dollar these days.

        You can’t buy a pack of gum or a good cup of coffee. You can’t make a dent in your gas tank or even buy a “big gulp.”

        But what you can do is amazing: with just one dollar, you can give hope to the hopeless.

        “I’ve been giving a dollar a day for the last ten years, trying to help you.”

        Those are the words one woman spoke to my daughter-in-law Natalie (once an abandoned child herself) after Natalie spoke during her first Stella’s Voice Summer Tour years ago.

        “She didn’t have much, but she believed in somebody like me on the other side of the world,” Natalie said, stunned. She had grown up in a world where adults put their needs ahead of their children’s needs, so this level of caring was amazing to her.
        One dollar makes an enormous difference in the lives of the children of Stella’s Voice. It is the difference between a cold winter on the streets and a warm bed. It is the difference between never hearing of the saving power of Christ and an eternity in Heaven with Him. It is the difference between one girl being sold or saved.

        It’s because of people who care, people who give that dollar a day, that these orphans are saved. When they are tossed onto the streets at the age of 16, they face only two options: sold or saved. That choice is not theirs to make. It is up to you and me.

        We must do everything in our power to save even one more girl from being sold. God isn’t looking for heroes. He’s looking for men, women, boys and girls with faithful hearts. He’s looking for people to love as Jesus loved.

  For the children,
        Philip Cameron

PS: God is looking to us to care for the least of these; He is looking for us to be the difference between these orphans being sold or saved. Please, give today. Be the difference.
