By Randy Alcorn April 19, 2013

I watched this video and was deeply touched by the happy outcome, and you will be too. It captures why we support the International Justice Mission. First, a brief background from IJM:

Joseph, an innocent father: a story from the International Justice Mission

Joseph was accidentally shot when a riot broke out in his neighborhood in Kenya. But later, at the hospital, a police officer pinned the violence on Joseph. There was no proof — he was innocent — but there was nothing Joseph could do.

International Justice MissionBefore he knew it, Joseph was arrested, charged and facing life in prison. Surrounded by dangerous criminals, he feared for his life. But worst of all, he feared for his pregnant wife and five children at home.

Joseph desperately needed help. An advocate could change everything. Watch his story now and see how this innocent father was finally set free.
