Don Miller says every story basically goes like this:
There's a main character
who has a problem
who meets a guide
who has a plan
who calls the character to action.
If the character follows the plan, the story ends heroically.
If the character doesn't follow the plan, the story ends tragically.
I think he might be right.
Seven years ago we heard about the horrors of sex-trafficking for the first time.
We wanted to help. We wanted to make a difference.
But we felt overwhelmed.
How could ordinary people like us really make a difference in the face of such a massive problem? How could ordinary people like us fight back against such evil?
Then we met The Exodus Road.
The Exodus Road provided a way for us to make a real life difference every month by funding actual investigations and rescues of trafficked victims. We began sponsoring investigations by donating each month even though we were unemployed. We receive real-time updates from The Exodus Road about investigations and rescues and saw exactly how, for the money it costs our family to eat at Chipotle, our monthly donations were being used to save lives. The more we helped the more we learned. The more we learned the more we wanted to help.
Now, eight years and many small steps after hearing those first stories of slavery, we are preparing to give our time, energy and lives as ordinary people who simply responded to a call to action.
And now you're the main character.
You have heard the gut-wrenching injustice of sex-trafficking.
You want to help. You want to make a difference.
But it's all so overwhelming.
You wonder how you could ever make a real difference in the face of such a massive problem. You wonder how one ordinary person could push back the darkness.
This is how.
Sponsor two years of real investigations and real rescues with The Exodus Road by sponsoring us.
You can set captives free. Or you can pay for Chipotle.
