Reform Work in Europe

During the second half of Exodus Cry’s European Screening Tour, we were both thrilled and humbled to visit a few of the world’s most influential centers for international politics and justice. With the support of your prayers, our legislative reform work in Europe developed remarkably as I was connected to leading politicians and officials in the Netherlands, Vienna, Switzerland and Rome. Here are some of the highlights: The Netherlands: In...

Back in the Urban Terrain of Hong Kong

Our April City in Focus is one of the most densely populated cities in the world with a population of over 7 million people: Hong Kong. It has been almost a year since Exodus Cry was in this cosmopolitan hub, and we’re excited to announce that we’re sending another one of our abolitionists into its urban terrain to raise awareness on sex trafficking.

From Denmark to Italy

You may remember the interview in Nefarious with a brothel owner named Slim in the Red Light District of Amsterdam, or when Denise described her story of being prostituted for nine years behind the windows. There was also Anca, from Eastern Europe, who realized her orphanage director was a trafficker and Eva who was locked in an apartment for three days to be sold for sex. Their individual stories of...

Thank You for Believing in Justice

Dear friends and supporters of Exodus Cry, I am excited to share amazing news that your prayers have helped make happen.

Making Prayer the Foundation

With an estimated 90% of women in prostitution being trafficked, Spain is more than just another tourist destination. And when an opportunity arose for Exodus Cry to come alongside the abolitionist association Escalvitud XXI, we immediately began to investigate the depth behind these numbers.

As early as the 1100’s,1 women have been prostituted and trafficked to and from this land. Engrained in the...

South Korea

South Korea is renown for having one of the world’s most resilient praying churches and global missions movement. We prepared to send a team to its capital city Seoul, hoping to plug Exodus Cry into the nation’s expansive network of intercession while spreading awareness about sex trafficking. The prevalence of prostitution in South Korea is severe, forming a thriving market for underground slavery, and we were determined to use Nefarious...

The Ripple Effect

rip·ple ef·fect:  The repercussions of an event or situation experienced far beyond its immediate location. Israel is a small geographical place around the size of New Jersey, yet the eyes of the world are upon her. The “Apple of God’s Eye,” He looks upon Israel and sees her significance. He has given her a mandate to be a blessing to the nations. With a call to be a template and...

Exodus Cry teamed up with Lois Choy of Door Ministries to organize a three-day trip that would aim to focus as much of the public and media’s attention to the issue of modern-day slavery as possible. Our Manager of Policy and Public Affairs, Laila Mickelwait, flew...
