indoubt Podcast Ep. 191: Finding Joy in the Scars Download Episode

God takes the broken, the hurt, and the suffering and transforms them – even those who have found themselves in the darkest places on earth. There’s hope for the sex assault victim. There’s hope for the prostitute. No matter what your situation is, there’s hope. On this week’s episode, Brian McConaghy joins us to discuss the harsh realities of human trafficking today. Brian tells of the very real challenges he faced smuggling much needed medication into Cambodia 30 years ago to now, where he leads the organization, Ratanak International. Ratanak has the privilege of restoring the lives of young men and women who are survivors of real-life slavery. Brian tells of the transformative power of God, recognizing that there will always be scars, but that Christ can redeem to the point of joy.
