Take time to watch this TED video where Kevin Bales explains what's happening and why.
Slaves working in mines in
the Democratic Republic of Congo
(from Free the Slaves website)
I've been thinking about what I can do to make a difference about this but I don't yet have a clear vision of what that should be. So for now I'm educating myself, reading, following the talk and praying about my actions. Free The Slaves is one of the sites I've been following. More and more, especially during this season, I've been praying about this, asking God to direct my heart and my giving.
