“The children from Safe Haven were doing a
performance of Noah's Ark, and the most amazing part was at the end
they all sang the song 'Happy Day'. It was just incredible to see
these children who have been through stuff in their life which I
never want to even imagine, they have been raped and abused over and
over again, they have been used as meat for men and women to
pleasure themselves, they have been constantly beaten up, they have
been forced to work with the money going to someone else. However,
they have been rescued and have experienced the amazing love of God
and here they are praising God and singing about how He has changed
their lives. They have gone from lives of misery, pain and abuse to
lives of love and joy. I was in tears as they sang! It is amazing to
see this yet there are thousands of others who it is still happening
to and we need to be praying for God's intervention!”
