I knew it was going to be dark, but nothing could have prepared me for what I saw.

On the outside, Bangkok is a bustling city, but when the sun goes down, the red-light districts light up.

It’s easy to think this is a problem on the other side of the world, but the streets fill with men from the United States and other western nations.

Western men select women according to the number pinned on their outfit, order sex acts from menus, and throw ping pong balls at the women as if they’re animals. From “secret menus,” the girls they take home can be 12 years old or younger.

My friend, Lori Wilhite, and I traveled half-way around the world into the darkest of the dark.

Lori is the founder of Leading and Loving it—a conference for Pastors’ Wives and Women in Ministry—that I attend every year (it’s soooooo good).

Her husband, Jud Wilhite, Senior Pastor at Central Christian Church in Las Vegas, and she’s the author of a beautiful book, My Name is Victorious!

To fully experience the joy of the table, we have got to learn how to work together to rescue others from the cultural slavery of sex trafficking.

You’ve got to hear our story—it’s wild. And click here to donate introduce freedom to some amazing women!
