Wonderful you!  You stopped when many walk on by.  Thanks for visiting.  This isn't a comfortable reality to visit.  It's not easy to sit with the ugly, letting your heart feel the enormity of it all, but you are just who I was hoping to meet. 

SOS began very humbly.  Christine Cain's book Undaunted fell into my hands and Half the Sky by Nicolas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn followed.  These pages opened my eyes to modern-day slavery and cut me to the core.  These books, along with others were passed to other hands.  How could this be going on right under our noses, a world so hideous and pervasive, yet largely hidden?  Others were fast in responding and work with human trafficking organizations began and then Aurora House was birthed.  

SOS now has an intercessory team spanning cities from Kitchener to Toronto, denominations from Baptist to Mennonite and ages from twenty-two to seventy-six.  

The "we" in SOS can include you.  The need is great.  Anyone can join.  Together we can make a difference.  

 

My name is Casey.  I had the honour of wrestling out in prayer, in dreams, in thoughts, as I was drifting off to sleep and waking in the middle of the night, what it was that was put on my heart.  SOS is only possible because of God's enduring faithfulness.  SOS has been surrounded by the support of numerous individuals and faith communities and our prayer is that we will see with God's eyes, feel with His heart and be His hands and feet out in our community.   


Given all the power and resources that God has placed in the hands of humankind, I have yet to see any injustice of humankind that could not
also be stopped by humankind. I find myself sympathizing with a God who, speaking through the ancient prophet, told his people, You have
wearied the Lord with your words...by saying, ... “Where is the God of justice?” (Malachi 2:17 NIV)...The more I have come to know him, the
harder it has become for me to ask such a God to explain where he has been. In fact, surprisingly, I don’t generally hear the victims of abuse doubting the presence of God either. Much more often I hear them asking me, “Where have you been?”
