5 More Slave Families Free (29/8)

We set off this morning to rescue 1 family from the bondage of slavery in the brick kilns and ended up rescuing 5! What a joy and a privilege it is to be a part of such a vital ministry here in Faisalabad. As always the smiles on their faces tells the best story.


Can you imagine the change of lifestyle in an instant. None of the families knew that today their lives would change. They started the day with the expectation of another hot and dusty day making bricks. By lunch time their debt was paid and they were on the way to freedom - all 29 of them. One man was born into slavery, another had lost 25 years of his life making bricks!


It is, to me, a constant reminder of how Jesus has paid my debt, the wages of sin, and completely and unconditionally set me free.


Hallelujah! What a Saviour!
