This book is amazing. What Gary Haugen and his team at International Justice Mission are doing for children enslaved in brothels across the planet will blow your mind. The lengths they go to in order to free these children are amazing and God-honoring. And the depth of evil and depravity that keeps them enslaved is utterly revolting.
I was moved to action by this book and partner with many other organizations that are trying to end human trafficking, child prostitution and exploitation, child sex tourism, and other horrors.

This book accounts how the workers of International Justice Mission work to bring freedom and justice to the Cambodian village of Svay Pak. This village is known internationally for its sex slavery forcing very young children into the trade. Readers follow the gathering of information, through the arrest and trail of the perpetrators. There are also stories of IJM freeing slaves from other areas of the world as well as how the organization comes alongside cases of rape and police injustice to bring about arrests, convictions and public knowledge of these crimes.
This covers examples of what International Justice Mission goes through while they try to defend God through fighting oppression and putting those who hold them in bondage to justice. There were a few various stories to show what they go through to plan helping these people, but for the most part it was about helping slave girls from even the ages of 5 years old out of forced prostitution. You get to see the courage they must have to help, and the love and dedication they have to their work.
