During 30 years of working in early childhood education, I had the privilege to serve many children from different class families. I did not encounter children who were abducted or sold and found connect with human trafficking background until after I retired at the age of 60. I finally had time to think about how those parents must have lived with never ending nightmares. They do not know where their children are. Those victims and their parents are worried and powerless. Thinking about this I cannot hold on and wanted to do something for them so I joined a few volunteer teams, but I always felt that I could not face having a torn heart while trying to help the victims.
He answered me:
Those lost kids do not know who they are- even their own name. They do not have an identity. My Children-Christians, those who have been saved and have everything to enjoy their life, most of them do not know who they really are. I want to give them the real ID, they are a children of most high God, I create them with my own image..
After hearing those words, the speed with which I progressed in my assignment was greatly increased. I acquired “MY ID” as our logo and trade name for face masks which I created with those words in mind, because everyone lost or hides their identity under a mask.
How do you know if one day your family or your friend’s family will not face the same tragedy? Jesus tells his disciples, one of their assignments is to set free those who are captured. The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, o preach the acceptable year of the Lord. Luke 4:18-19
Before you join the rescue team you probably will go through the same process that I did, but don’t go away, I would still like to invite you to join us in this cause.
We cannot do this alone; we are stronger together. We not only want to restore their physical and emotional freedom but also rediscover their identity. I wish you would be part of this story.
