Exciting News!

"We've seen evil brought to its knees, and we've witnessed some utterly awe-inspiring triumphs—like the victory in Mala's* story.
"When she was just barely out of childhood, Mala was trafficked into a horrific brothel—one of the most violent we've ever seen. She was raped by as many as 20 men every day, beaten, humiliated and abused. Mala lost any hope of escape: 'There are only two ways to get out of this brothel,' she said. 'You either get sold to another brothel, or you die.'
"But there was another way. Our IJM team uncovered the brutal trafficking ring. The powerful man behind it—a trafficker named Nakul Bera—seemed unstoppable, but we refused to give up on Mala. After six attempts, we were finally able to rescue her." [read the rest of the story]
Praise the Lord!! Through the efforts of IJM another dark brothel has been locked and shut down. The girls held captive will no longer live in fear and pain. Through you're gifts, they can live without fear and in freedom! Young Mala now has a job in a beauty parlor and boldly stood in court to save other woman like herself by testifying against the trafficker. 
We celebrate today, we celebrate what Christ has accomplished through this year, through this month of dresses, and we thank Him for giving us the opportunity to be a part!
Celebrate with us and give a so IJM can continue to relentlessly search out, rescue and restore girls like Mala.
Guess what?! We only have 5 more days of dresses!!
