My son and I are attending a human trafficking conference together in June. He is planning on applying for an internship at some point with International Justice Mission and ZOE International, both of which go into areas where trafficking is rampant and work to stem the tide. There sure is a lot of work to be done on this issue.

I enjoyed years ago reading the Keith Green story, “No Compromise”, as he searched through every religion till he FINALLY turned to God…and then, what an amazing testimony he had through his music and servanthood!
I also enjoyed your referenced article above, Tim. I’m currently reading the book, “Forgotten Girls”, Stories of Hope and Courage, authored by Kay Marshall Strom & Michele Rickett of SIS (Sisters In Service*).
*It’s a womens ministry striving to help young girls have better lives in 3rd world countries,especially through education and pointing them to Christ.

Whether in the worldly sense of buying goods and services or the eternal sense of seeking God, counterfeits cost more than they save.

Your thoughts here made me think of Ecclesiastes 3:11 – “He has also set eternity in the human heart.” We long for God and the things of God because that’s what’s in our hearts. We just don’t always know it and often end up settling for the counterfeit, Satan the masquerader of light and righteousness. (2 Cor. 11:14-15.)
