Most of us spend every day doing things that we think are really important.
We go to meetings, we try to hit our sales numbers, we analyze our reports, we try to make it home in time to have dinner with the family. However, occasionally you get to actually do something that is really important.
My wife is doing that right now and I’m really proud of her!
She left yesterday headed to Cambodia on a mission trip. She will be spending ten days supporting the Rapha House, an organization that helps to rescue and heal children out of slavery and sexual exploitation.
This is a knee-weakening and stomach-knotting cause when you realize the staggering numbers associated with these egregious crimes against children: The UN conservative estimates that there are nearly 2.5 million trafficked victims at any given time and according to a recent International Labour Organization human trafficking for sexual and economic exploitation is the most lucrative and fastest growing transnational crime (ahead of drug trafficking) estimated at $32 billion annually.
Thanks for letting me share a little of my non-sales passion.
