As I was trying to decide what to write about in my monthly news letter, I received a call from our staff directors in Cebu City. They called to update me on some great news. When I was in Cebu a month and a half ago we identified several brothels one night that were working children as prostitutes. Four girls were rescued immediately from one of the brothels and 5 more were rescued today! Four little girls and one little boy. One girl was 14 and the other three were under the age of 10. I wept with our directors as they told me the good news. The best part is that the five kids are already in our safe house getting the love and care they so desperately need. Thank God!
The job is just beginning with these five precious ones though. Please be in prayer for each one of them and our staff in these crucial first days. They may have been rescued from the brothel, but the chains of emotional, and mental damage will take years to be free from unless God does what only He can do.
I so appreciate your prayer for the staff in Cebu! We can’t do what we do without you!
