I recently returned home from a trip to Haiti to learn more about what the sex trade looks like there and how … Continue reading

Let your light shine.

Let your light shine.

As soon as we walked into the aftercare home, she came running up to me. I had no idea who she was, but I could tell she had a fiery spirit. She proceeded to take my hand and give me a tour of her home. In broken English she showed me around a dark building … Continue reading

Agape

Cambodia. I have been here before, but again I am struck by the poverty and desperation.
