Hour 1: Sarah Zylstra, Senior Writer for the Gospel Coalition

International Justice Mission (IJM) has been battling sex trafficking in the Philippines for almost 20 years. Just as they were rejoicing in their victory of getting the streets clean, trafficking took a turn for the worst, down the information superhighway. Sarah Zylstra shares how IJM and the Church are cracking down on this darker, twisted version of child molestation. God was already working behind the scenes, and hope is being restored! "When we give God our effort and prayer, he multiplies our 5 loaves and 2 fish to meet the needs of the thousands."

Officer Aaron shares how Christians within the Force bring Christ to the darkest places of our Circle City.  The only way to fight fear is to offer the hope and peace of Jesus Christ.
