To recap briefly, in Lucena City an orphanage, the Sankey Samaritan Mission for poor children and youth, was raided by the NBI and an American, Tom Randall and orphanage manager Toto Luchavez and his son Jake Luchavez were arrested and are charged with trafficking and child abuse based on strong testimony of some of the 31 victims.
Tom Randall was eventually released but the trial for the other two defendants continues today.
The whistleblowers who reported the abuse have been subjected to everything from slander to death threats.
Tom Randall continues to tour the country raising money and featured one of the defendants in his last newsletter.
The victims and the whistleblowers, along with those who are working to do the work of Jesus and minister to the victims in this case ask for prayer today…that justice will be done and truth will win, not American money and influence.
I ask the same.
Updated: The case has been continued for sixty days.
