We all inherently know it. When we watch movies, read books, or even watch the news, we know evil when we see it. We are all wired to recognize that there are things in this world that are good: love, heroism, generosity, happiness. We can also all recognize when things aren’t the way they’re supposed to be. Child sex trafficking is something that humans universally recognize as evil. Where does that come from? Is it just society or years of evolution that tell us this or is it because we are made in God’s very image with inherent values that point us back to our Creator? (more…)
In February, 1Saved was the benefactor of Unity Christian High School’s yearly Winterfest fundraiser. We were so blessed by the support for our efforts for these precious children across the world. Almost $2,000 was generated by these students for cybersex victims in the Philippines!
God has been so good as He continues to provide for the many needs of this ministry. Thank you, UCHS!
This year, our dream became a reality at One Saved as the first “one” was saved from a cybersex den in The Philippines. We have trusted God’s leading for the last five years and now, a harvest is coming. With the rescue and continued restoration of our first client, “Abby,” we can finally begin the important work of showing her and telling her about the good news of God’s salvation in Jesus! (more…)
While in the Philippines last week, we had the amazing opportunity to attend the Manila Prayer Gathering–an annual event where believers gather to hear what is happening on the human trafficking front in the Philippines and pray for the greatest needs.

This year, we were blessed again with perfect weather and amazing support at the golf outing. From a fundraising standpoint, we had our most successful outing to date! Thank you so much to our sponsors, golfers, and volunteers for the your part in supporting God’s work of rescue and redemption through One Saved in the Philippines!
We look forward to seeing you all next year and continuing to grow so that more children can be saved through this ministry!
This video put out by IJM truly captures the heart of what we are stepping into in The Philippines with online sexual exploitation. IJM does rescue but they need partners when it comes to aftercare. That’s where we come in. This video does a great job of illustrating the redemptive power of aftercare in the healing and restoration of children from awful situations. Check it out!

“The Philippines has become the global epicenter of the livestream sexual abuse trade…” according to UNICEF. They also reported an increase in “the number of criminal cases involving livestream child abuse in the Philippines from 57 in 2013, to 89 in 2014, to 167 in 2015.” Here is an informative introductory video by IJM to help you understand more about this growing & evil problem. This is what we are stepping into as an organization. We partner with IJM who does the rescue and prosecution aspect while we provide aftercare and healing.

What a wonderful day we had for the golf outing this year! We had 92 golfers this year and yet pace of play was not affected much. The silent auction and raffle were more successful than any previous year. And the sponsorship items for the house on hole #16 had an amazing response! We’re so thankful to all the volunteers and golfers who came out and gave of their time, talents, and treasure for the kingdom of God through the ministry of One Saved. This year we raised more than any previous year and we’re so encouraged as we approach the opening of our first aftercare home. Stay tuned for updates on the progress of Rahab’s House.
