What is “Redeemed”?
Redeemed is a two-week journey (March 22 – April 2, 2010) of learning about the harsh reality of human trafficking. It’s not easy to hear about.
But there are things we can do.
The more I learn about human trafficking, the more it vividly illustrates for me my state as a former slave, redeemed from the bondage of sin. Christ paid the price with His own blood to redeem my life from the pit – the least I can do in return is to tell others about the freedom available through my Savior. And as a former slave, redeemed by a God who loves justice and mercy, I feel compelled to do all I can to secure freedom for the millions of physical slaves in this sin-marred world.

Let’s proclaim freedom for the captives in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
