As a family of believers worldwide, we have the power to change our world by bringing Jesus to the place of greatest need. I want to share with you an opportunity we have to make this kind of impact. Worldwide women and children are bought and sold as commodities for prostitution and other forms of exploitation. As you can imagine, when a child is sold for exploitation, the emotional damage to that child is almost beyond measure. But Jesus is able to restore what the enemy destroys. I’m excited about several opportunities we have to make a difference. The following is a ministry operated by dear friends of ours, good people that many of you know. Check out what they are doing, and ask the Lord if he has a role for you.

Then their eyes were opened. — Luke 24:31
The disciples were walking through sorrow like none they had ever experienced before. Their Lord was dead, and no explanation could account for it, no theology could soothe their aching hearts.
Pouring out their grief to a stranger as they walked along the road to Emmaus, they wrestled with their world gone mad. Nothing made sense. All their hopes were shattered.
Then their eyes were opened.
So it is with us. There are no answers, no reasons to account for all that has gone wrong in our lives. Each of us has walked through bewildering times when it seems that our Lord has left us all alone. But then, as we pour out our sorrows to the One who seems a stranger, our eyes are opened. Then we learn the truth. We discover that He was there all along, walking with us, comforting us, telling us the truth, responding to our invitation for Him to enter our lives and make His home with us.
