Advocacy: Ending Slavery in Our Lifetime
Updated: Mar 17, 2021
If I could tell you to listen to one episode from the entire podcast, it would be this one.
Normally on the show, we want to really include women who feel super relatable. Like, you could see yourself being them and being faithful right where you are to glorify God in similar ways to them. Today’s guest definitely has a unique call on her life and while we may not find ourselves in a position like hers in ministry or in our calling, BUT we can all relate to wanting to be faithful to the Lord, to relying on Him in our own unique circumstances. What I hope you see is that while she has witnessed great evil and experienced it in her own life, she is FULL of hope and belief in a God who LOVES justice and hates evil.
As you listen to today’s episode, I want you to take note of Anu’s passion, her own redemption story, her love of Jesus + Justice and her HOPE. While it is certainly packed full of information about human trafficking, the impact of violence on marginalized people and the impact of COVID on slavery, it is also her own story of redemption and many answered prayers.
I believe you will leave this episode changed, as I did.
Anu answers questions like...
What do you believe are the greatest factors that would bring an end to slavery in our lifetime?
How has COVID impacted the needs that IJM is addressing?
Where do you see God moving in this fight?
