Missions Monday - The Exodus Road


Today I am going to be doing something a little different for Missions Monday. Usually I share about various organizations that you and your family can get involved in. Today I want to tell you about an organization that I am involved in and ask you to join me.

Today I want to introduce you to


From the website:

"The Exodus Road exists to empower the rescue of victims of sexual slavery. Operating primarily in Southeast Asia, we believe that a major component of fighting human trafficking and child slavery lies in working with local law enforcement to find situations of trafficking and to then assist in the rescue of victims and the prosecution of criminals. By decreasing the profitability of the trafficking industry for the criminal, we will eventually slow the mechanisms that make the exploitation of women and children so lucrative."

I would like to say that it was the statistics of human trafficking that prompted me to get involved with The Exodus Road.



These statistics are staggering. Overwhelming. And not wholly what led me 
to be a part of what The Exodus Road is doing to fight trafficking.

It was pictures like this one.



And this one.



It was the faces of those who are trafficked that broke my heart.


It was Sarah's story and her rescue from slavery 
that broke my heart even more.

Then I heard Matt and Laura Parker share the story of how 
The Exodus Road began in this video.



I am so very blessed to be part of The Exodus Road team and am looking forward to sharing the stories of all those we are fighting hard to rescue through an incredibly heroic team of investigators and even more so the stories of those who have been rescued.


Will you join me taking this journey on The Exodus Road?
