The Lord is good to all; he has compassion on all he has made."
— Psalm 145:9
- Praise God for giving our team in Gulu, Uganda the opportunity to present on the legal aspects of the Domestic Violence Act at a national forum for leaders in northern Uganda. This was a wonderful opportunity to build good relationships with local leaders and media, and emphasize the importance of enforcing laws that protect women’s rights.
- Praise God for a conviction and sentence of eight years by plea bargain in the case of our client Rosario*, who suffered years of abuse and became pregnant as a result. She now has a 3-year-old son and is studying public accounting at university. Praise God that she continues to be restored and that he has brought justice in her case.
- Praise God for the successful rescue of nine girls and women from sexual exploitation last weekend in a major city. These victims were being sold for sex by a tight-knit trafficking network until IJM and local authorities tracked them down and brought them to safety. As a result, one girl was able to celebrate her 18th birthday in freedom on Sunday. Praise God for the compassionate officials who are giving her a chance at a better life!
- Please pray for an ongoing sexual assault case in Thailand. One of the suspects is expected to testify this week. Meanwhile, the young survivor’s interview seems to have been “lost”.
