A Desperate Rescue by Ron Hunnicutt

It is very diabolical. She said  that her very own husband sold her into prostitution. What kind of man sells his  own wife to a pimp? Now she stands in a window in Amsterdam. Four hundred  windows display women segregated by nationality for wayward, predatory and  obdurate men to purchase for sex. The man who would become her husband was  traveling through Singapore, her home. She was smitten. Her family was  delighted. The day that every little girl dreams about finally occurred. Her  knight had arrived.

But before the honeymoon even  started the knockdown blow of betrayal kicked hard. They arrived in Amsterdam,  her identification and passport was seized, and she was delivered to the pimp.  Unable to speak Dutch, she was embarrassed to tell her family and afraid to go  to the police. So evil set in – every night.

I would know nothing about  “Annie” except that her unfortunate story is told by Naomi  Zacharias of Wellspring International, a division of Ravi Zacharias  Ministries. Wellspring researches and supports ministries that help  rescue women out of these desperately wicked conditions.

Amsterdam flashes world-class  fun, lights, music, glamour and excitement. They don’t advertise in bright  lights that the women, made in the image of God, are being used in the worst  way. They do not flash in neon lights that some strains of gonorrhea are  resistant to antibiotics. They also do not inform unsuspecting wives back home  of infidelity to prevent further spread of disease.

Annie was eventually able to get  a passport and return to Singapore. But once her family learned of her slip into  the abyss they disowned her. They rejected her. What word do we use when evil  strikes hard and then brutally strikes again?

She said that she returned to  Amsterdam because that’s all she knows. Even if she found redemption in a church  her identity in the congregation would be “ex-prostitute” so she shuns that  option. If she returns home the red taint of “prostitute” scorches her. So she  stands in the window with obsequious resignation but deep down she hates the men  who take advantage of her.

The germane issue is this: good  men can do something. Those of us who are struggling day in and day out to be  numbered among good men can support Wellspring. Wellspring helps organizations  that rescue these women out of these horrific situations. And like one good man said if we do for one what we wish we could do  for many then we have done something great for both the one and our own  soul.

Naomi Zacharias also spoke of  another woman who wished to jettison prostitution and acquire the skills of a  chef. With Wellspring’s benevolence she now delights the palates of patrons at a  four star hotel. So the grand idea is to support Wellspring and then find out  who you helped later in heaven. That works for me.

Anyone who listens and observes Ravi  Zacharias will quickly conclude that he is a faithful ambassador for  the things that are important to God. For those who seek the truth with a  modicum of intellectual honesty Dr. Zacharias is an invaluable resource. Engage  with due diligence and research. Prove to yourself that Wellspring is one of the  best nonprofits on the planet. And remember that most of us in America are rich  beyond imagination compared to most in the world. We can give when we really  want to.

Presume that when you support  Wellspring you are rescuing your very own daughter or sister because in God’s  economy that is precisely the case.

Want to help and make the most  impact in situations like this? What if one hundred percent (100%) of your  donation went directly to those in need? Wellspring International is  an arm of Ravi Zacharais  International Ministries. Ravi is a well-known International speaker and  defender of the Christian Faith. Administered by Ravi’s daughter Naomi Zacharais , Wellspring  covers their own expenses, investigates all requests for funds thoroughly, often  going to the location. They do the research so you can be confident that your  money goes where you want it to. One Hundred Percent (100%) of  your money goes to help women  and children in crisis.
