Pat Bradley stared out the back car window at seventy displaced people huddling together under a few trees to escape the blistering African heat. They had fled their village in South Sudan in the middle of the night as it was destroyed amid a bloody civil war that had indiscriminately claimed the lives of young and old family members alike.
As these desperate, mourning survivors became smaller in the back window, they grew ever bigger in Pat’s heart. He knew they wouldn’t survive unless someone did something–and quickly. But he was just a normal guy–a formerly divorced recovering alcoholic who worked at an ad agency. What could he possibly do?
From that moment forward, Pat Bradley refused to do nothing. Born For Rescue chronicles harrowing stories of tragedy and restoration across multiple continents. From sex slaves liberated in the red-light districts of East Africa to secret meetings with the FBI. From warlords bearing AK-47s to waylaid survivors of tsunamis and earthquakes. From innovative new methods to combat the global hunger crisis to imaginative, courageous young women breaking free from cycles of trafficking and abuse.
Born For Rescue reveals how anyone can make a difference in the world right now because the heart of God is to keep showing up and keep shining the light of hope into the darkest of places within each of us–and how each of us can become a part of seeing and serving others with this light.
