  Success Stories...
 

     How we make a difference:

     Our focus is helping children who are victims of sexual exploitation and abuse plus
     those  who  are "at-risk" of becoming victims due to conditions of extreme poverty. 
     We work hard to ensure the greatest possible success in the following areas:

  • Rehabilitation Centers Hope Returns provides a safe and secure home for children who have been rescued from sexual exploitation and abuse. They are loved and attentively cared for as we provide them with all their physical, medical, educational, counseling and spiritual needs.

  • Education/Vocation – First-rate in-house education is provided for the girls. Once they become young adults, depending on their preference, we also provide either a college education for them, or we work with partners to give them vocational training.  Either way, we ensure that these girls are successfully reintegrated back into society.

  • PreventionWe work with partners to provide education to village people, bringing awareness about  what really happens to their children when they allow them to be taken by a stranger who tells them that their child will have a better life.

 Without our partners that we work with in the communities, we would not see the
 same successes. Our partners are a real blessing.



From Darkness into Light       

CALCUTTA, India
August 29, 2013

We have recently seen how  God has turned His heart to children caught in the  grasp  of  human  trafficking and
how  He  is  bringing  acceleration  to their rescue.

Indian Girl in Brothel
 
While visting regions in India that we work in, we were able to get access into a gated brothel. A young girl, whose parents own part of a brothel, came out to a church service and through the counsel of the Pastor, began to realize that what her parents were doing was wrong.  For the first time in her life she felt God’s unconditional love, and moved by that love, she became the key instrument in helping us to gain access to that dark locked door.  Her parents allowed us into the brothel area.  We were shocked by the atrocious conditions that these victims are living in. It was shocking to see the open sewers and filth that these little children are exposed to on a daily basis through their imprisonement in that world of abuse and exploitation.

In addition, Hope Returns has secured a safe home for children who are rescued out of brothels. This home allows us to take in 60 rescued girls.  It is a beautifully designed facility—in complete contrast to where these girls were previously imprisoned. Here, we are able help these young girls become whole again through the love of Jesus.  We help to give them a 'future and a hope.' Here, they are now safe, they are loved, they're cared for and they are valued. 

What would normally have taken 2-3 years to achieve, has been accomplished in 6mos.
The Lord has opened doors and has given us clear direction to move ahead with speed
to rescue children out of their dark prison.

Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life and He is so in love with these beautiful children. He reaches out  to  the  brokenhearted.  And we are really happy that we,  with all our partners, have the opportunity to play such a part in His amazing rescue plan.
* Jer 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you," say the LORD. "They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope." 

 May you be blessed by the work we are doing together.  Thanks for all your support!



Making Cakes for a King

 CAMBODIA - Vocational Training

  Some  older  girls  who  had  been  at  the  rehabilitation 
  center  for  a  few  years  were  recently  trained in cake-
  making  and  became  new graduates,  making cakes for
  Bloom   Café   Cake   Shop.   The  cakes   are   beautifully
  decorated and delicious.  About three weeks  after they
  graduated,  a  French lady came into the Cake Shop and
  purchased some cakes. While she was there waiting for
  her order, she was telling them that she was a friend of
  the   princess   of   Cambodia.  A few days later,  the
  princess   of   Cambodia  came  into  the  Cake Shop and
  ordered  a  cake  for  her dad. . . the  king  of  Cambodia.
  These  girls  had  the  opportunity  to  make  a  cake  for
  the  king!  They  were  so  excited  about  it!

  restoration,   redemption   and   hope. 
  Making cakes  that  are  fit  for  a  king
