Dateline NBC: Update on Children for Sale

In 2003 Dateline NBC went undercover with International Justice Mission (IJM) and did a raid on a brothel in Svay Pak. Today that brothel has ben converted to a community outreach centre called Rahab house. The place where our team did our VBS this past July. Four of the girls who were rescued from that raid back in 2003 are featured in an update on that documentary called 'Children For Sale.'

This is an 8 minute video: Dateline NBC Update on Children for Sale

It is both fascinating and encouraging to note that the Ratanak Foundation has been instrumental in developing and/or is currently funding ALL of the projects featured. God is good in giving us these glimpses of the impact that is possible as we seek to invest in the lives of girls who society deems disposable. Seeing the faces of these 'my little sisters' encourages me to keep pressing on knowing that He is the God of the Impossible, redeeming lives for His glory, restoring dignity and giving hope to the hopeless. Indeed nothing is too hard for the One who came to give us life and give it to us in abundance.
