SOME FREEDOM SUNDAY FOLLOW-UP
Freedom Sunday may be over, but God is just beginning to answer the prayers we prayed on September 23rd . We regularly get field updates that we can’t share publicly, but when I found out this one was approved, I wanted to share it with you. Your prayers and your generosity made this possible.
Recently, our team in Mumbai, India supported anti-trafficking police to free six girls from a brothel in the red-light district. The girls reported horrific abuse at the hands of the brothel owner. They were forced to serve up to thirty clients a day, and when they attempted to refuse they were beaten. All of that changed when IJM and the police showed up. One of the girls, a 17-year-old, was so desperate to leave that she threw herself in the arms of a female police officer during the rescue.
The operation was initially delayed because of a local festival season, but the teams refused to be stopped. IJM staff and the anti-trafficking police are continuing the search to find and capture two additional suspects from the case.
This is what you were praying for. When your church prayed, you didn’t have these girls in mind, but God did. He knows each of these children by name and heard your prayers for their deliverance. Thank you for praying and giving during Freedom Sunday. We give praise for what He has done.
Until All Are Free,

There are three main avenues through which you can move this mission forward:
•You can advocate with your legislators. Let your Representative and your Senators know that their voters care about ending human trafficking and violence against the poor.
•You can support the work financially. Any gift is welcome, and becoming a Freedom Partner is an easy way to make a contribution. Just visit www.ijm.org for all the details.
Thank you all very much for your support, prayers, and contributions.
