Our hearts were burning to see transformation come to the sex industry in Korea, yet it felt like we were alone in our quest. We had support from a few local pastors; however, the church community at large and general public was apathetic toward such a “disgraceful” issue. Nevertheless, with an increase in prayer and the...

Fighting For Seoul, South Korea

Last December I visited Seoul, South Korea. Shortly after arriving I met with two bright young ladies who are forerunning the ending of Human Trafficking in Seoul.

A Missouri law made to crackdown on traffickers passed its initial threshold on Wednesday in the state's house of representatives.

Respond To Human Trafficking: Compassion

As I discussed in my pervious post, abolition begins in the place of prayer.
