5 years ago today I was in Denmark. David Emmanuel Umem called me in the morning. He told me that he had to go on a rescue mission. I was nervous for his safety. And nervous about the children he was going to rescue. It was said that they might not be alive.

Later in the day David send me pictures of the children. He found a boy and a girl in the bushes. The children were almost naked with burns all over their bodies. Someone had tried to burn them alive.

I was shocked. David and our team took the children to the hospital. They were both hospitalized for weeks.

This was the day Mary and Ekong were rescued. Mary had been sexsual abused. She was diagnosed with syphilis and gonorrhea. Only 9 years old!
