Basketball Great Jeremy Lin Reveals the Heartbreaking Experience That Has Just Changed His Life

Leah Marieann Klett : Jun 8, 2017  The Gospel Herald

In the midst of the horror around him, God answered Lin’s prayer.

As reported, the 28-year-old guard, who was signed to the Brooklyn Nets last year, recently teamed up with two Asian-based charities, One Day’s Wages, whose objective is to raise awareness regarding girls education, and the Hug Project in Chiang Mai in northwest Thailand.

He recently asked for prayer for himself and a few others ahead of his latest trip to Asia: "I'm praying for an awesome trip where I expand my perspective/view on the world and find convictions from the Holy Spirit on where, and who to partner with, for my foundation," he wrote in an email to his supporters.

It seems God answered his prayer.

On June 6, Eugene Cho, a pastor and humanitarian leader for One Day's Wages, posted a photo of himself and Lin on Instagram. In the photo, the two men are seen walking through one of the red light districts in Bangkok where 10,000 sex workers, many of them children, are exploited on a daily basis. Both of their faces express horror at the circumstances surrounding them.

"We've been traveling throughout Thailand this past week and learning the various nuances, challenges and complexities around girls' empowerment ... patriarchy, poverty, trafficking, education, government, law enforcement, and the list goes on," Cho revealed.

"Earlier this week, we walked through one of the red light districts in Bangkok where on any given night, there are 10,000 sex workers. I've been here several times before but it's still as heavy and painful. Many of these sex workers are from rural areas, the hill tribes, and migrants from neighboring countries."
