He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim freedom for the captives
and release from darkness for the prisoners Isaiah 61
Yeah that's our job!
Hope Chest International fights trafficking and has safe homes set up in some of these cities, they have been successful in rescuing girls from the grips of this horrific evil. The rescues are not only taking them out but setting them up with counselor for helping healing of these girls and providing safe place for them.
We were in Tom Davis Q&A where we got to ask questions and Tom and Vince Giordano Outreach director for Hope Chest, were very helpful in answering these questions. One person asked how much these rescues cost $2300-2600. This includes everything to help the girls get out, and help them receive all the things they will need. We were all done with the Q&A and I am sure I can express what everyone in that room was feeling like we were hit with a ton of bricks. The gentleman that asked the question about the cost stood up and asked if he can say some things. This is what he shared in a nutshell
''I am sure that everyone here wants to do something, Now we can, we can all walk out this room and come Monday morning we may not think about these girls! I have counted us in this room we are 80 if we can all give 30$ we can rescue one girl, think about it like your own daughter. I have a 4 year old daughter and I can't even begin to imagine this! Whatever you give I will double, please don't walk out without doing something!''
We began to open our wallets and people writing checks and placing all the money on the podium, hoping that we will at least fund to save one girls lives. Look at what happened here.
