Christian Ministry Rescues 33 Children From the Claws of Human Trafficking
TellAsia, a Christian ministry that provides education and training, recently received a message from concerned parents. These parents had been tricked by a man who told them he was taking their children to a special home and school and would give the children everything they needed to become successful adults. But the truth was deeply sinister. The man was a confirmed criminal and repeat offender who planned to sell the children to the highest bidder. When TellAsia's native coordinator caught wind of the crime, he hopped in a jeep and traveled three days through the Himalayas to save the children.
"With only one helper, our coordinator arrived at the location and challenged the trafficker," a TellAsia video says. "The children were being kept in dismal conditions, with six children forced to sleep in one bed. Some had already been abused. One girl was so traumatized, she couldn't speak a word. The children were soon to be shipped off to brothels in foreign countries."
