IJM Benefit Dinner

Friday night we went to a benefit dinner for International Justice Mission (IJM).  We partnered with IJM during our trip to India in December so this issue is near and dear to our hearts.  We heard about their work first hang and not too long after we left Kolkata, they initiated a brothel bust and many women were rescued from their dark hell holes!  SO COOL!

IJM International Justice Mission (IJM) is a human rights organization that rescues victims of violence, sexual exploitation, slavery and oppression.   They empower local police to fight for victims and bring justice to the oppressors, among many other goals.  We LOVE this organization!

So here are pictures from the dinner at DU Friday night to raise money for those without a voice.  God's current fight against injustice is our voice and standing up for those who can't defend themselves.  We are honored to partner with them.

You shall not pervert justice. You shall not show partiality, and you shall not accept a bribe, for a bribe blinds the eyes of the wise and subverts the cause of the righteous.

Deuteronomy 16:19
