freedom for the captives

Why I love International Justice Mission. Taken from here.

Today one of our South Asia teams successfully executed two rescue operations, freeing twenty-six people in an area that is prone to mob violence against slave rescue efforts. Among those rescued was a ten year old boy who is blind. I was so moved by these words of one of our team’s leaders as she wrote to us about this little boy’s rescue:

“As soon as we entered the area, we saw the young visually impaired boy of whom we had heard stories. He had laboured in the mill for approximately twenty-five cents per month, and had been beaten by the owner. We took his hands and walked him out of the facility. Now, at the end of our day we see a smile on his face and a release certificate in his hands. Praise our awesome God!”
