We recently watched the powerful movie, "Sound of Freedom," and it moved us deeply. It tells the true story of a brave federal agent named Tim Ballard, who risked everything to rescue a brother and sister abducted and trafficked in Colombia. It was a painful movie to watch, but sadly, for many children in our world, this is an all too common reality. Vulnerable and innocent children are torn away from their families and forced into a cruel world of sexual addiction, organ harvesting, and child slavery.
Below are just a few of the many testimonies we receive about lives being impacted and transformed by the Human Trafficking & Slavery Ministry of Heaven’s Family.
Greetings from Guatemala! After visiting with our second ministry partner in this country, we were overjoyed to see firsthand the quality of love and care shown to children who have suffered unspeakable pain. Below is Maria's story, as told by our partner:
Hua Lin used to live in a small, cramped apartment in Vietnam, where she worked at a factory job. But one morning, she found the factory padlocked when she showed up for work. One thousand workers were laid off with no advance notice and left to fend for themselves because of COVID-19.
Thandar Oo's belly lurched with hunger as she held the feet of her children in place. One foot at a time, her fingers coiled rope around little ankles to secure them to the bamboo floor of her tiny hut. It was her only way to make sure her three children didn't run off while she "worked."
