It was so awesome to finally met Don and hear what going on over here and the progress AIM is making. We would love to just take every single one of these girls and boys and rescue them (90% of th girl we work with during the day are being trafficked at night). They are all between 3-12 years old and sweet as can be.
It really sunk in for us that this process can only happen one at a time. 1 girl at a time, 1 boy at a time, 1 brothel at a time, and 1 pedifile at a time.
You may ask... What can 1 person do in Cambodia on a 2 week mission trip? We are part of the process. We are part of the process which will lead to the solution. So this week we are loving on these children, which allows them to build trust in us so we can find out who is in immediate danger. It is a horrible life for all of these children, but for some of them it is horrific. Most children are beatened, gang raped, forced to have sex up to 10 times a day, and torchured.
God has called us to be a light in a very dark evil place and spread the good news that they are loved and have been forgiven. In addition, we are providing encouragement and support for those who are here every day fighting this battle.
If God is calling you to join us on our next mission to Cambodia or somewhere else in the world, please email Kim Jacobson in global outreach at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you would like to help financilly support AIM. Please go to www.AIM4Asia.org to donate online. This foundation is run soley on your donations and they need you to support this fight to end sex trafficking.
We would also like to ask you to invite your friends and family to follow our blog. We are feeling called to create awareness at home so that more work can be done here. So please create awareness for us on your blog, email, facebook, or Twitter while we are here.
And lastly, please pray for our mission. For continued unity, health and focus for what we have been called to do.
With love, Cambodia 2009 Team
