Slavery has always been the height of human depravity

 

"My Justice Journey"

All of the great justice movements in history are undergirded with this spirit and power, and they appear to have one focal spokesperson, such as William Wilberforce, Martin Luther King Jr, Nelson Mandela and many more who have stood in the face of horrific oppression in order to bring dignity to people that seemingly everyone but God had forgotten.  

However, behind every great movement there are literally thousands of volunteers building the momentum, each of which are on their own justice journey.  Subscribe to "My Justice Journey" blog and hear from Freedom 58 answer and wrestle with some of life’s most difficult questions. We also provide updates from our aftercare partners so you can be informed about people joining forces to end modern-day slavery and oppression.

The House of Light

When I met them, Sister Lissi told me of her hope to turn their home into a place to love and care for the young girls who were being rescued. It would take a lot of money to renovate their current space and a partnership to see it through. It is our great desire to see a reflection of God's kingdom in this project which we call the "House of Light."
