As most of you know I am going to Cambodia! Definitely not what I was expecting but I will say I am quite excited to see what the Lord has in store! While we are in Cambodia, we will be working with the long term YWAM missionaries there. Our focus while there will be mainly on the sex-trafficking district there. My hope is that we will get to work with the children who have been caught in the sex trade.
It has been a gruesome few weeks learning about the sex-trade and its horrors. Children as young as 5 years old are being sold into it. My heart is breaking for those children. It is a horror that I never fully understood or even knew about. It is quite sickening the more I learn. I ask that everyone begins praying now for my team and I. It is going to be a very difficult outreach, especially when facing the men who buy these poor children.
God has really been teaching me a lot about His justice and mercy and love. His justice is unlike ours. We are not going over there to convict and condemn the men who are buying. I am learning so much about God's heart, and He longs to bring those men into close relationship just as much as He longs for the victims. He deserves to have all come to Him because He paid the ultimate price for each and ever single one of us. I ask for prayers that we will be able to see these men as God sees them, and that God's love for all people will just overflow to everyone we come into contact with.
