Welcome to FREEDOM PARTY WEEK, friends! A little background info here.
(And if you can’t be bothered by clicking on links and stuff, basically it’s my birthday this week AND the 2-year anniversary of my husband not dying AND we’re going to have some fun and give stuff away for FIVE DAYS STRAIGHT.)
I want to kick things off by sharing a really cool organization called The Exodus Road. Started by my friend Laura Parker and her husband Matt, The Exodus Road is a network of surveillance teams and individuals working with local law enforcement to rescue victims of human trafficking in Southeast Asia and India.
I met Laura online a few years ago when she was living in Thailand and loved her immediately.
She has since moved with her beautiful family to Colorado where the day-to-day stuff of The Exodus Road takes place. But Matt and his teams spend lots of time on the ground in dangerous places in Asia.
They could both use our prayers.
Since July 2012, The Exodus Road has helped rescue 189 women and children caught in the web of human trafficking.
Thank you, Jesus.
Laura recently wrote a book (a wonderful, poignant, amazing book) about what it’s like to be married to a guy who regularly goes into brothels undercover to help rescue young girls. It’s a hard read but sooooooooooooo (sooooooooooooooooooo) good.
I really reeeeeeally really really really want all of you to read it. So I’m going to make you a deal.
If you buy a copy of The Exodus Road (Laura’s book) TODAY (previous ownership of the book doesn’t count), I’ll send you a FREE copy of another awesome book: Deepening the Soul for Justice. (I’m currently doing a read-along of DtSfJ on my blog, and it’s another good, good, good one.)
(And The Exodus Road is just $6.29 on Amazon right now. Two incredible books for $6.29?!? You would be INSANE to pass this up!)
