Auto Draft

For July and part of August, We are in America enjoying a few weeks of much needed rest and relaxation. We have also been connecting with some of our supporters.

This week we are together with my wife’s side of the family. It is one of the best weeks of the summer. It is a week when all of Donna’s siblings and their familes meet at a fun location.

This year it is Montague, Michigan.

While enjoying the time with family, as we approach Independence day, my thoughts turn to Freedom Home. This is the ministry to trafficked women in Moldova. We miss them as we’re far away.

I find myself remembering dinners around their table. Every time that we would get up to try to help we would hear “sit down please” from one of the girls. It’s one of the few phrases that she knows in English.

I’m reminded of holidays where we gathered at Freedom Home. Praying in the New Year. Painting eggs and enjoying a feast at Easter. They won’t celebrate Independence day of course because it is a U.S. holiday.
But, for these girls, everyday is “Independence Day.”

Nat is free to be the baker of sweets that she always dreamed of being as she interns at a local market.
Amy is free to be a loving mother to her daughter. Neva is free to go to college and finish her degree.

They are Free. Free to be who God has created them to be!
