Human Trafficking: Advancing Justice through Regeneration and Reconstruction

[…]

Roger Oliver and Jerri Lynn Ward interview Tim Yarbrough about his efforts against the scourge of sex trafficking. Learn Biblical strategies for advancing the Kingdom and bringing God’s justice to victims.

Tim lives in the county where he was born and raised and always lived with his wife Deborah. He has been a serial entrepreneur for over 4 decades and a dedicated mentor to others.

At the local level, where Tim’s real passion resides, he and other local Christians have developed processes for (1) the care of widows and seeking to recover that care back within the framework of the family; (2) the care of abused women and children from inside the religious world (mostly Protestant) including immediate care, housing, Biblically-based counseling, job training, work opportunities, etc. (3) helping rescue victims of sex trafficking by working on the ground and with legal teams, (4) the creation of an adoption program where the goal is that all abandoned babies throughout their North Alabama area will find permanent acceptance within a committed Christian family, and (5) supporting orphans in a variety of applications.

Human Trafficking: Advancing Justice through Regeneration and Reconstruction by Jerri Lynn Ward & Roger Oliver

Note that none of this involves an appeal to politics.

This involves a free people, giving a helping hand to the less fortunate locally, face-to-face, building them up so they can walk under their own steam, and build a better life in society.

That’s how things materially improve in a society. That is how society heals.

May more and more Christians follow their example!
