First, an Apology!
We are sincerely sorry! It is now 2013, and we have been silent for too long! Yes, we are still here and still searching for ways to further God’s kingdom by being the voice of the oppressed. We hope that you will forgive us entirely and we will make it a point to post more often!
Now, an Extraordinary Story and a Blessing from God!
Somewhere during the month of September 2012, one of our team members, Kevin, received a voice mail from a pastor, Pastor Jack. Pastor Jack told Kevin in the voice mail that he had received Bethel College’s magazine in the mail. On the cover he saw Kevin’s familiar face. He flipped through the magazine to find the corresponding article, and there he learned about Bought at a Price. He loved our story and what we are doing, and he wanted to support us. He had called Kevin to find out how best he could support us.
Kevin and Pastor Jack could not get their schedules to align, so after a month or two of playing phone tag, they finally were able to talk towards the end of November. Kevin was able to explain more in detail about B@AP, that we stand for raising awareness for and eliminating sex trafficking. He told Pastor Jack about the missionary we support. The Missionary is passionately living out the life God has called him to: rescuing as many girls from sex slavery as possible through the power of prayer, etc. The best way that Pastor Jack could support B@AP, Kevin explained, is by helping us support The Missionary.
Pastor Jack and his church were blown away by our ministry and our desire to make a difference in this world. The church wanted to help. They expressed interest in buying our T-shirts and bracelets as way to support our ministry, but the biggest surprise was still yet to come. A week or two later, we received a check in the mail. It was more than anything we could have asked for, and it was for The Missionary. We were stunned. The Missionary felt so blessed and was so grateful.
Needless to say, God is amazing, and we give Him all the glory. He is doing some big things in the realm of human trafficking. Join us in prayer and fighting for those who cannot speak for themselves.
