A directive from the word of God: “… find out what pleases the Lord. Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. For it is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret.” (Ephesians 5:10-12 NIV)
Wayne Crull knows what it is to be both tender and tough. At 19 he was in Vietnam. Later he served as pastor of Crestwood Baptist Church in St. Louis County. Then President of the oldest child care agency west of the Mississippi River. Until recently for years on staff of the Missouri Baptist Children’s Home (www.mbch.org) in the area of development.
So it was in those years at the Children’s Home that he became educated and involved in addressing the wickedness of “sex trafficking;” primarily “child sex trafficking.” To the Children’s Home’s credit, as being a part of the solution, they currently have two separate areas of residence to minister to its victims. Wayne so appreciates MBCH President Russ Martin and staff specialist Jackie Williams as being wonderful resources in this area. This focus on sex trafficking by the MBCH further fueled Wayne’s interest in resisting this growing evil. He has become a positive and effective force in the battle.
Hear this brief summary of Wayne Crull’s story … what he has learned about this “plague” of sex trafficking and ways to face it … and what he has learned about the workings of God in the process … in his own words.
On a personal note, in our radio time I expressed appreciation for his coming to Virginia … near Dulles Airport … to help officiate in the wedding of son David Hendrick and his bride Cortland Brooks Hendrick. I look at the five terrific children … our grandchildren from that marriage … and am even more thankful!
