The International Justice Mission

One organization that you should be familiar with is the International Justice Mission who do work in Asia in trying to stop sex trafficking and end sex slavery. If you've read the Nazareth Manifesto of Luke 4 or anything from Amos, you'll know that this is organization worthy of your prayers and support. Here are some endorsements:

“This government stands with you and our country stands with you… we abhor the practice of sex slavery, and will do all we can to help you.”
-George W. Bush, President of the United States of America

“I am honored to be a part of this effort. I think it’s a really, very, very important initiative. I think that the things that International Justice Mission is doing are really remarkable and I salute you for all that work.”
-Madeleine Albright, former US Secretary of State

“Justice is close to the heart of God. The work of IJM gives the hope of justice to those who have been wrongfully imprisoned and detained. I applaud their work on behalf of the innocent.”
-Charles W. Colson, Chairman of the Board, Prison Fellowship Ministries

“Justice is in the heart of God, and is a significant part of our mission in the world. Every church should hear about the work of International Justice Mission. They will help you make a difference in the world.”
-Dr. Rick Warren, Author, The Purpose Driven Life, Pastor, Saddleback Church

“The issue of human trafficking and slavery is one that needs much greater public awareness, attention, advocacy, and outrage.”
-Senator Hillary Clinton, D-NY

“God has a plan to deal with the injustice of the world – His plan is us! His plan is his people. His plan is those of us who will recognize and realize that we’ve been called to be a part of what God is doing about injustice in the world. And I’m so grateful I get to be a little part of that.”
-Steven Curtis Chapman, Recording Artist and Songwriter
