Mission Trip 2016 - Day 7 - Malaysia

Today, we visited the children's shelter in Malaysia who are under protective order while waiting for trial, waiting to testify against traffickers and pimps, and waiting for paperwork to return home to their families. We met children from Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, Sapa (Indigenous region of Vietnam), and Myanmar. The youngest girl who was sexually exploited was 12. For the first time, we met children who were going to be exploited for their organs. There was a beautiful little Indian girl only 18 months old whose freedom was stripped from her right from birth. Her long eyelashes, her beautiful brown eyes, her angelic face and her purity did not matter to the villains who saw her as a product, as a commodity, as an animal to butcher and sell on the black market. Is there an evil greater than this?
