Day 1 Updates! (Dunamis)

During our devotion on the first night, we shared what we were most excited about and most nervous about for the trip. Today I experienced what I was most nervous about, putting faces to the stories I have heard about Dunamis. We spent the entire day at Dunamis, an organization dedicated to providing a home, education and future for girls rescued from sex trafficking. We met the 14 girls and 5 babies currently living at Dunamis. We spent time with them, painting the new building which will be ready in January (it will house 16 girls and their babies), playing a soccer match, and hanging out with them in their current home. I was afraid I would never be able to forget their faces. And I was right, I won’t, but not for the reason I thought. I will never forget that thanks to Dunamis, they are learning about a God that loves them. I will think of Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” I will never forget their smiles, laughter and resilience and I will hope and pray for their future.
