Over the years, our ministry has worked with a number of victims of commercial sexual exploitation in Azusa, CA. Every story is sad, but the story I am about to share with you is particularly horrifying.
One of the ministries that we work with is made up of former special operations, soldiers who have now banded together to rescue women is sexual slavery. Just last week we learned that their most recent operation involved rescuing a young woman who was locked in a shed, used as a sex slave for eight months.
What particularly grips my soul is the fact that, just as we were expanding our ministries in Traffick Free Azusa, this young girl was abducted. While we hope to participate in her restoration process, her story motivates us to fight back against human trafficking in the city of Azusa more than ever!
