Road to Recovery in Nepal

Workers at a center for the rescue and recovery of trafficked or abused girls in an undisclosed city in Nepal found Maya*, 17, working as a dishwasher at a hotel, where her mother had abandoned her after the death of the child's father when she was 8 years old. Maya had been routinely abused at the hotel, according to the director of the center, Sunita* (right). "We found her there in a wretched condition and rescued her," Sunita said. "We shared the gospel with her and she stayed with us for 28 days; now, she is born-again believer." The ministry found Maya's aunt and handed her over to her. "We thank God for rescuing her from a hellish life through us," Sunita says.
