What Our Church Partners Say

“This is a ministry that seeks to partner with churches in creative ways. Love Justice goes out of their way to create a relationship with the church and provide ways the church makes a difference in the world of human trafficking and keeps on the front lines of human trafficking.”

Jimi Pitts | Missions Director
Washington Heights Church
Ogden, Utah

“We at Port City Community Church partner with Love Justice International because they truly are doing some of the best work in many of the hardest parts of the world. Their accountability is unmatched, and we feel overly confident that every dollar sent is used in a Christ-like way. We are so thankful for their hearts in loving the most vulnerable in our world and diligently fighting to care for those who are taken advantage of. Partnering with Love Justice is a privilege, and we are very excited as they continue to grow and impact so many with the gospel.”

Evans Baggs | Director of Missions
Port City Community Church
Wilmington, North Carolina

“The tragedy of human trafficking is an issue that weighs heavy upon the hearts of my students and many young adults in our church. We enjoy working with Love Justice because we know they are confronting the issue head on. They are actively protecting young children, intentionally rescuing them, and providing for them after they have been rescued.”

Kelley Sewell | Pastor of Adult Ministriesr
Grabill Missionary Church
Grabill, Indiana

"As a church, we are always looking to partner with organizations where God is already working. Preventing human trafficking is a daunting task, but coming alongside the work of Love Justice is a great privilege for us because we know they are literally saving lives and bringing God's Kingdom to earth. We are so grateful for the work they are doing and feel honored to be a part of it!"

Jen Oakes | Missions Director
Missions Church

Transit Monitoring & Interception: How It Works

We attack trafficking at the most strategic moment—while it is in the process of occurring and BEFORE women and children have been exploited or enslaved:

  • To date, Love Justice has 44 different transit monitoring stations located where trafficking occurs—near important border crossings or transit hubs in Nepal, Bangladesh, India, Mongolia, Zimbabwe, Malawi, Uganda, Kenya, Benin, and South Africa.
  • When highly trained Love Justice staff notice a sign of trafficking, they stop the suspected trafficker and victim for an interview to determine if trafficking is occurring. If staff members recognize a red flag, they continue their questioning, separating the suspected victim and trafficker.
  • If further questioning reveals additional red flags, Love Justice staff take action by contacting the victim’s family, questioning the suspected trafficker, and if the situation warrants it, contacting the police to deal with the trafficker further.
  • The victim arrives at one of our shelters for protection, aftercare, and education about the dangers of trafficking as we assess if it is safe for the victim to return home.
  • We interview victims to gather data and criminal intelligence to assist our process of convicting traffickers. When possible, we guide the victim through filing a legal case against her trafficker.
Be the Kingdom

Be the Kingdom

All our work is done through local churches. We strive to live our faith in Jesus Christ and His gospel by following the directives of the New Testament in how we live, work, and relate to one another.

Help Those Who Need It Most

Help Those Who Need It Most

Jesus said, "Whatever you do for the least of these, you do for me." In response to this teaching, our goal is to find and help the most desperate and needy people in the world.

Do Much with Little

We strive to find and implement the strategies that make the greatest possible difference in the lives of as many people as possible with the limited resources we have been entrusted with.

BEYOND TRANSIT MONITORING & INTERCEPTION

While transit monitoring and interception are our primary work, our approach to anti-trafficking also includes:

Data Collection & Analysis

Our staff is continually collecting and analyzing data in order to better understand trafficking trends and networks. This is crucial in helping to improve our operations, prosecute traffickers, and identify targets for investigations.

Prosecution & Conviction

Prosecution and conviction of traffickers are the primary goals of our investigations department because we believe they are vital to fighting the industry at its core and stopping hundreds of lives from being trafficked in the process.

Research  & Development

Love Justice is passionate about taking a proactive approach in the mission to end trafficking through strategic, intelligence-led investigations that PREVENT victims from being enslaved in the horrendous industry of trafficking.

FAQ About Our Approach
Asset2

Why We Serve

At Love Justice, our mission is to proclaim the love of Jesus Christ by fighting the world's greatest injustices. We believe in a God of justice—if we truly love God, we must Love Justice.

Slavery is not a thing of the past. The human trafficking industry is one of the most devastating and inhumane crimes in the world today, and it is growing. It is estimated that there are 21–45 million slaves in the world today—that’s more than any other time in history.

Who We Serve

Orphaned and Abandoned Children

There are millions of children in the world who have been abandoned by their parents, forced to leave home because of extreme poverty, or suffered the loss of their parents due to disease or war. Without parental guidance, provision, or love, these children often turn to lives of drugs and crime, spiraling out of control in a cycle of despair that often leads to death from HIV or other diseases.

We are passionate and determined to take these lost children who have no hope and place them in an environment where they receive love and learn of God's truth. Rehabilitation of children who have spent significant time on the streets is not easy and requires prayer, innovative thinking, and persistence. Despite the great challenges facing this work, it is critical that these children are not forgotten.

Potential Victims of Human Trafficking

The human trafficking industry is one of the greatest injustices in the world today—and it continues to grow at a devastating pace. Women and children are either kidnapped or lured by false offers of marriage or employment, and then they are sold into human trafficking.

They are smuggled to another country where they are forced to work as prostitutes, laborers, or similar roles. Our primary strategy for fighting the human trafficking industry is to monitor national borders and transit hubs, intercepting the victims before they are lost to the dark world of modern slavery.

Where We Serve

We serve where the need is greatest. Over half of the world’s slaves are in South Asia, which is why the core work of Love Justice International is based in India, Nepal, and Bangladesh.

Although there are many types of slavery in this region, there is none so common, so insidious, as the trafficking of Nepali and Bangladeshi women and children into the Indian sex industry.

In addition to this area of the world, Love Justice International is also expanding its reach into South Africa, Mongolia, Zimbabwe, Malawi, Uganda, Kenya, and Benin.

How We Serve

How We Serve

We are committed to finding and implementing only the very best, most effective strategies to meet the needs to which we are called.

We are devoted to finding and implementing only the very best people to guide and do the work.

We understand that long-term sociological effects of charitable projects are complex and difficult to measure. That is why we do our work with careful research, planning, and consultation with the most knowledgeable people we can find. We also take seriously the long-term commitment of beginning social projects upon which a person’s livelihood may depend. Therefore, we will not withdraw financial support in any way that will hurt those we serve. We are determined to do as much good as possible, as boldly as possible, and as quickly as possible.

Any project that we take on will be done in accordance with the wisdom, guidance, and direction of indigenous Christians who are already doing the work. We are committed to finding these people, consulting them, working with them, and empowering them.

We are committed to uniting Christians from all nationalities, as well as those working in the field.

Our Servant Partners

Indigenous Church

Finding quality, capable, and passionate workers is central to what we do. We rely on such people to work for justice and serve with compassion among the world's poorest people. We believe that it is critical that all employees of Love Justice International be sensitive to God's Spirit in their service. 

We want to work through the indigenous church by finding and empowering those who are already doing this work—those who already have a calling and have shown themselves faithful. We are committed to providing the necessary tools and support in an effort to empower them to carry out the work God has called them to do.

We believe that true leadership is based in humility. Jesus told His disciples, "If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another's feet. For I have given you an example, that you should do as I have done to you" (John 13:14–15 NKJV). 

Therefore, we seek humble yet capable servants who do not seek personal glory, wealth, or power, but rather the will of God in all things. In the developing world, as in the West, the potential for corruption is great, especially when money and positions are offered to those not rooted in humility. For this reason, we prayerfully consider every candidate, looking for those who see their opportunity to serve, not as a stepping stone for themselves but as a calling to participate in God's work to the poor and suffering.

Our Faith Commitment

Statement of Faith

Love Justice International is a Christian organization that desires to follow God’s leading and be open to the work He wants to do. We fully realize that it is not us, but God, who is in and above all things, guiding those who love Him towards His will.

And while our work primarily serves the victims of human trafficking and orphaned and abandoned children, we desire to remain open to new areas of work, new ideas, and new people as God leads us. Our three core values summarize our calling as an organization and are unchanging, even as our work evolves.

What We Believe to Be True 

We believe the Bible to be the inspired and only authoritative Word of God (2 Timothy 3:15–16). 

We believe that there is only one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19, John 10:30, John 16:13–15).

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ (John 1:1, 14), in His virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14, Luke 1:34–35), in His miracles (John 2:11, Acts 10:38), in His vicarious and atoning death (1 Corinthians 15:3, Hebrews 2:9, Hebrews 10:10, 14), in His bodily resurrection (1 Corinthians 15:4, John 2:21–22, Luke 24:6), in His ascension to the right hand of the Father (Acts 1:9, Ephesians 1:20, Colossians 3:1), and in His personal future return to the earth in power and glory (Mark 13:26, Matthew 16:27).

We believe each person born into this world possesses a nature that is continually inclined to sin, but can be made a new creation in Christ by the Holy Spirit and thereafter can continuously grow in grace (John 3:16–19, Romans 3:23–24, Romans 5:8–9, Ephesians 2:8–10, Titus 3:5). 

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life.

We believe that the Church is the living body of Christ and exists to proclaim the gospel to all persons everywhere and to bring believers to maturity in Christ. 

We believe that both the saved and the lost will be resurrected; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life, and they that are lost unto the resurrection of eternal punishment (John 5:24, 28–29).

We believe that Christ shall return to judge the world and to rule in righteousness.

We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in Christ (Romans 8:9, 1 Corinthians 12:12–13, Galatians 3:26–28).
