Please don’t let the topic first presented, that you may not be interested in at all, stop you from reading this short article. It touches on the heart of why we need to pray – more earnestly as we get closer to Christ’s return.
I had the grace a few weeks ago of being introduced to an agency that works to save slaves around the world. That’s not the only work that this agency does. They help women whose families try to seize their land after the death of their husbands. They stop sex traffickers.

Which I liked.
