Indeed, the atrocities of sex trafficking are glaringly evil–straight from the Enemy himself. It’s not uncommon for those on the Blackbox team to feel overwhelmed in the struggle–to weep for the boys, to have a sense of prevailing heaviness and darkness, and even to dream about the scenarios they’ve witnessed.

And yet.

Yet, even in the struggle, we are not powerless. Even as we weep, there is hope. We are not overwhelmed, because the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it (John 1:5).

At the end of the day, boys are being saved! They’re finding healing from their past and purpose for their future. The story is changing…and if this isn’t the work of the Lord, then I don’t know what is.
