For the Hidden Heroes

22 Dec
There are hidden heroes that go into the dark places and give everything they are to rescue those who are prisoners in a world that most of us could never imagine. 
Our undercover investigators for The Exodus Road are on the front lines of the war against human trafficking and are some of the bravest people I know.

But even the bravest heroes need an encouraging word. 
They need to know that, while they are hidden, they are not forgotten.

Here is my letter to them:

Friends,

I feel like I can call you that. We have never met, 
but I know your hearts and have heard your stories.

Thank you. Thank you for everything you do. 
I know you don’t expect a thanks for it.
You do it for those you rescue and that is enough.

I know what you do impacts you in ways that I can never imagine. 
What you see. You go into the dark to be the light. You offer hope in a world that seems hopeless. You offer rescue to those who can’t see past the prisons.

I am sure there are moments when you are discouraged.

Take heart.
You are making a difference, friends. With every person you have rescued that now knows freedom, you are making a difference. With every prosecution that takes a trafficker off the street and into prison, you are making a difference.

I am sure there are moments that you feel alone.

I am here. Praying for you. 
Lifting you up to Him for courage, strength, and safety.
I am here. Telling your stories. 
Letting others know about all you are doing and those you are doing it for.
I am here and we are in this together.
Although we are miles apart, we are of one heart and mind in our mission.
I will do my best here to match your best there.

Stay strong, warriors.
Shine your light bright.

Much love and thanks,
Wendy
