Freedom Sunday

This week we welcomed Melinda Harvey to speak with us about Justice. Melinda is the Operations Manager for one of our Partners in Mission, International Justice Mission.

IJM exists to protect the poor from violence in the developing world, by partnering with local authorities to see captives set free, bring criminals to justice, restore survivors, and strengthen justice systems. Recently, IJM Australia has been focusing on the incredibly important work of combatting cyber-sex trafficking in the Philippines, and we stand with them with prayer and support.
