Esther pt. 1 - Taken
28:20

Esther* was only a child when she was taken and enslaved on the lake. Day after day, for nearly a decade, she was abused and forced to do exceedingly dangerous work with no hope of returning to her family.

This week we begin a special five-part series, traveling deep into the heart of the illegal fishing industry on Lake Volta, in Ghana. With unprecedented access to Esther’s life, we will journey into the crushing reality and indomitable spirit of those who seek justice.

Elena Hung
47:53

When Elena Hung gave birth to her second child, Xiomara, she knew her life had changed. However, what she didn’t know was that a new mission was beginning. As a child with complex medical needs, Xiomara inspired Elena to be a voice in Washington D.C. for families all around the country who need the healthcare system to work for them.

Today, Eddie and Elena talk about what it means to be the mom of a wonderful, feisty, 5-year-old and why “lobbyist” isn’t a dirty word - but an important mission to bring the needs of children in front of those with the power to help.

What makes a world changing activist? Today, Lisa Sharon Harper gives us her answer. Yet what she shares is not simply a beat by beat recounting of her life, but rather a global, systemic, and theological treatise on the nature of injustice and the possibility of change.
