NEWS from our Partner in India (name withheld)
A friend recently sent me this passage to read. 2 Kings 6:15-17, where armies are coming up against Elisha and his servant is afraid. Elisha says “Don’t be afraid! For there are more on our side than on theirs!” Then he prays that God would open the eyes of his servant. The Lord opened the young man’s eyes and when he looked up, he saw that the hillside around Elisha was filled with horses and chariots of fire!! God’s ARMY had arrived to do battle.
This past month, my wife and I left a city in Northern India after spending time with the Anti-Human Trafficking (AHT) team. On our way to the airport, we saw a big crowd and found out that there were two young girls, between 12 to 15 years of age, who were being trafficked openly in the market. Though there were more than 120 people around, my wife and I were able to walk through and take the girls, which is a miracle in itself. We got the police involved and they arrested the boys who were selling them. Surely the Lord’s Army was far greater than those in that crowd!
The girls father had died and when their mother remarried, they were severely neglected. A pimp took them and they have been used by many men, sleeping in ditches on the roads, torn clothes and smelling horribly.
The two girls are now in police custody until the judge gives them to the AHT team to care for them and keep them safe. Our leaders are following up with the case. We are in need of renting another space for a new Safe House to take in more girls. Please pray for us, that God would work all this out for good.
