I wonder how many people know that.
And it’s not a little problem.
There are more slaves in the world today that at any other time in history. 27 million men, women and children are enslaved.
I first heard about this modern day plight at Passion 2012. I learned more of the story this past January where I, along with 60,000 of my closest friends, got to shine a light on slavery. Today I ran a 5K and raised money to continue that task.
We want to rescue. We want to restore. We want to prevent.
It’s an awe-inspiringly, gigantic task. But I serve an awe-inspiringly, gigantic God! There is much work to be done and many lives to be changed.
Today I rose before dawn, laced up my Mizunos, and fought human trafficking one stride at a time.
