Pray for Slave Children in West Africa

Did you know that in West Africa virgin girls between the ages of 8 and 15 (but sometimes as young as age 4) are being sold to temple priests as slaves?  This is called shrine slavery, and the most well known form is called trokasi.  Primarily in the countries of Ghana, Togo, Benin and Nigeria these young girls are sold to temple priests in order to appease their gods for alleged sins.  They then become the property of the priests and are subject to every kind of hard labor and abuse. 

For the past twelve years Every Child Ministries (ECM) has been rescuing these girls and have been trying to rehabilitate them.  Please pray that their ministry would grow and pray especially for funds to build a rehabilitation center in Ghana where the girls will receive counseling, education and Bible studies.
