Merry Christmas from IJM

Most people in the world have a hard time believing in a loving God because their life has no signs of such love. A ministry I've started to support this year is changing that.

International Justice Mission (IJM) has a four fold purpose:

  • Victim Relief - Relieve the victim of the abuse currently being committed.
  • Perpetrator Accountability - Bring accountability and just consequences under the law to the specific perpetrator(s) of abuse.
  • Structural Prevention - Prevent the abuse from being committed against others who are also at risk by strengthening community factors that are likely to deter potential oppressors, reduce the vulnerability of at-risk populations and empower local authorities to stop such abuses.
  • Victim Aftercare - Provide access to services to help victims transition to their new lives and to encourage long-term success.

Here is a Christmas card they just sent out to highlight what they are doing and give you an opportunity to find out more about them.
