redeem (v.) to regain possession of something valuable, at a price; the act of saving or being saved from sin, error, or evil

Many of our children, once rescued, start down the path of redeeming the years, the hopes, and the dreams that have been stolen by sin and despair. This is almost always a long road requiring time, patience, and faithfulness… but our God works to redeem the darkness and emptiness of a child’s past and “win back” the joyful possibilities that once seemed lost forever.

But the ultimate goal is the redemption that brings a personal knowledge of the Savior and an abundant life in Him.

Part of the above definition of “redeem” is “at a price.” The price is often high for our kids, their families, and our dedicated staff who work with them through harrowing memories and extremely sensitive details. But the heart and soul of a child are a “pearl of great price,” even when redemption comes at a high cost.

“‘Do not be afraid…do not fear, for I myself will help you,’ declares the Lord, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel.”
Isaiah 41:14 (NIV)
