Last night I answered my second call volunteering for the rescue hotline.
My heart stopped after I said, ” hi, how may I help you?” and a man spoke to me from the other end.
Our hotline and rescue specifically works with women who have been prostituted. When a man calls, it can be a scary thing, because as we’ve learned it could be a pimp calling to find one of his girls, or just curious to what our number is. Last night was not the case, and it was someone who supported and loved the Princess who was with him.
I spoke with her after him and she was ready and willing to be rescued.
After talking with her and getting her background, I immediately began calling the safe houses and rescue teams, only to find there were no available beds in the safe houses. My heart was heavy and I could only think, “there is no room at the inn.” There are fortunately some incredible families that are opening their homes as host homes for the overflow of these princess.
I called Sara* back and let her know that a team was on the way and she was in tears thanking me for talking to her and being willing to help her.
She will wake this morning in a new home. In a bed that is made fresh for her. She will have breakfast prepared for her and will be loved in a diligent and persistent way. Labour day is seen as a day for celebration, family and cookouts. When I look at the calendar now I will only see freedom and love.
Thank you for being brave, sweet princess. God is going to take care of you.
