Prague at night

As you can see (I hope) that Prague is lit up at night and the buildings take on a surreal quality. It is so lovely with all the buildings highlighted. I could not get a good shot of the castle etc., but believe me it is gorgeous.
The city is alive at night with crowds of people sitting in cafes and walking around holding hands, and lovers kissing on the bridge. We went out at 11 and could not believe the people. The sad thing is that with all the fun folks are having if you look closely you can also see the down side. There are many drunks living on the streets with only the clothes on their backs and maybe a bag of belongings. They sleep in the entrances of buildings where there is some shelter. It hit us that these same men were once little boys loved by a set of parents who had dreams for them. How sad that they now have no hope aside from the Lord and live like this. We also so many young girls who are prostitutes walking around trying to pick up men. Little girls in their teens. One young girl particularly hit us with the vacant look in her eyes. We have been told that many of them are with the human traffiking movement going on where they are kidnapped and made sex slaves. Our friends Robin and Roger Harsh are missionaries here and they are going to be focusing on this as they set up their ministry in Prague. Please pray for them and these young ones who are wandering around the streets with no hope. If you are an intercessor, please put this need on your regular prayer sheet and intercede for the girls and the Harshes. Thanks so much.
Blessings, Wayne and Sherry
