International Justice Mission

Last weekend, I attended the If Gathering 2016 conference.

One of the speakers was from the International Justice Mission (IJM).  She talked about the horrific abuse she suffered at the hands of her husband.  Since she lived in India, she had no recourse and was trapped.

Eventually, she was able to escape the abusive relationship.  Now she works with IJM.  The organization rescues people that have been enslaved and are being used for sex trafficking.

What she said had a huge impact on me.  I thought about the horrible things that happened to me as a child.  I am grateful that I am not a victim anymore.

Unfortunately, there are children being abused today.  How can I help those children?  What can I do to make a difference?  I don’t know the answer to these questions, but I do know it’s time for me to stop ignoring the problem.
