Divorced and alcoholic, St. Louis businessman Pat Bradley wanted to see for himself what kind of “brainwashing” was being done to his children … so he visited the big service in Grace Church (in St. Louis) where his former wife had taken them.
He heard the Good News of hope and forgiveness available to him in Jesus! He responded, praying to receive Christ!
His life was dramatically changed. Alcoholism is no longer an issue. He and his wife were remarried, are now partners in ministry, and are “hopelessly in love.”
He bought a copy of Brother Andrew’s God’s Smuggler in the church bookstore, soon asking God to let him do the kind of things that Brother Andrew did. In 2000 he began taking self-financed mission trips, several of them. From those experiences was born Crisis Aid International (www.crisisaid.org).
In this radio conversation with Pat Bradley, we focus on the amazing work Crisis Aid does in addressing the painful issue of “sex trafficking.” Just in this area of Crisis Aid ministry, more than 100 girls in the United States previously trapped in this horrible world of slavery, have been helped to “… start their lives over!,” a total of 600 worldwide!
The credibility of Crisis Aid is remarkable. When the FBI does a “sting,” catching the perpetrators with young girls – mostly in hotels — , the FBI and other law enforcement agencies offer the girls the option of being helped by Crisis Aid !
Mission minded churches support Crisis Aid. I heard St. Louis Cardinal pitching “Ace” Adam Wainwright, in a television interview, speak highly of Crisis Aid, indicating his support, which Pat Bradley confirmed.
One seeking to offer real help to people … in Jesus Name … could hardly find a better, more credible ministry to support than that of Crisis Aid International !
