In 2013, the beginning of Operation Underground Railroad was sparked by the story of Gardy Mardy, who was kidnapped from his family. Gardy’s story reached Tim Ballard, who was working as a federal agent for the U.S. government. As someone who led dozens of child exploitation cases, he was devastated when he discovered he could not make this a U.S. case. He made a promise to Gardy’s father and left his government job to begin the search for the little boy.
Although he is still missing today, we will never give up until we FIND GARDY.
To date, we have rescued over 3,800 survivors and assisted in the arrests of over 2,100 traffickers and predators.
Gardy’s story has led to the freedom of thousands.
In his name, we will continue to show the world that no child should ever be for sale.
God’s Word is truly timeless. Reading through 2 Timothy 3 this morning reminded me of the world I see in 2020. Facebook provides the perfect format for this sort of behavior. It’s sad how history continues to repeat and some cannot break the cycle. Please read the article below when you get a chance!
But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 2 People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4 treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.
