"So do not be afraid of them. There is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known."
— Matthew 10:26
- Praise God for the first arrest this year of a suspect in one of our property grabbing cases in Kampala, Uganda. Our legal team was relentless in working with the court and police officers to demonstrate that there was enough evidence against the suspect to justify an arrest. Pray for continued progress in this case, and that the arrest will send a strong signal that violence against widows will not be tolerated in Uganda.
- Praise God for the opportunity to hold a human trafficking workshop for 36 church pastors and leaders in the Dominican Republic. Pray that the church will be awakened to the realities of trafficking in the DR, and be inspired to take a role in living out God’s call to justice for the oppressed.
- Please ask for God’s grace and healing for a young couple rescued from forced labor slavery who just found out they are both living with HIV. Mercifully, their young baby has tested negative, but will need additional tests in the future. IJM will help provide ongoing medical care for this family, but we know they are feeling many emotions and have many questions. Pray we can comfort them well in this difficult time.
- Praise God for a rescue operation conducted by the Cambodia military police that resulted in seven young children being removed from an exploitation situation where they were forced to beg. Please pray for justice in this case and for the survivors’ full healing.
