"Those who have witnessed the greatest evil in life often become
the sources of the greatest compassion. Slave Stealers is
one of the most inspiring stories I've ever come across, and a
testament that out of the most unlikely places, hope can flourish
and change lives. I've traveled with Tim and participated in
freeing 32 young girls. I can tell you there is light on the other
side of this journey into the hell of sexual slavery that enslaves
millions of boys and girls in plain sight. Tim Ballard shows us how
all of us can help find a way to that light."
