Our Latest Update:
How much value do you think one life has? In a world where humans can be sold as a non consumable resource, true value and worth is so easily forgotten. A common thing we hear from the mouths of daughters living in our homes is how she felt like garbage and "worthless" before God rescued her. We believe one life has infinite value!
She cannot be replaced. She is unique in all the world. Her personality, the way she laughs and cries and runs and plays. Who she is and how she learns and loves and lives, it's all unique to who God made her to be. So we fight for each one. We love and keep loving. When she feels unworthy of love and belonging we show her how treasured she is. It's an unfamiliar road for daughters who have only known exploitation and abuse, sometimes love and belonging is scary.
Over the last couple of months we have had 2 different rescued daughters run away and come back! It's hard to imagine but statistics show us the majority of rescued ones return back to what they were rescued from. We do not have those statistics within Safe Refuge, we see the majority of lives totally transformed never to return to slavery. Still, when we see even one girl run away, our hearts are broken and we fight on our knees to see her return. Many of you follow our Facebook and Instagram daily posts and have been a part of praying for the needs arise. THANK YOU! Please continue to follow our posts and stay connected. We are fighting a daily battle against darkness and evil and a kind of poverty that is not merely a lack of resources.
The kind of poverty that enslaves souls and dehumanizes daughters, cannot be fought without extravagant unashamed love for the ONE. To believe that one life has infinite value means we know that each one of us on the Safe Refuge team CAN make a difference. Thank you for the difference you have made!
We are excited about changes being made to meet the many needs and rescue lives! Click HERE to join our Safe Refuge News Update!
