- Please join us in praising God for justice in Guatemala. The man who kidnapped and raped an 8-year-old girl has been convicted and sentenced to over 30 years in prison. Please pray that IJM’s social workers will have wisdom to help our young client heal from the abuse.
Just received this prayer and praise request from the International Justice Mission www.ijm.org Let’s just take a moment to imagine what justice feels like for this little girl. Imagine the deep anguish of fearing your attacker would find you again completely relieved…for the next 30 years. That type of relief is only understood by the victim…and the God of justice.
Knowing that a team of Christians did the painful work of investigation, the tedious work of legal preparation, the frustrating work of trial postponements all for one little girl…helps me understand Christianity better. To understand God better. Our Enemy better. Our true purpose better.
IJM helps me to understand love a little better. That’s why I wrote a novel about them. May the Lord continue to rescue little girls through them. Amen.
