I was talking to a taxi driver the other day as we battled traffic across town.
He was curious as to why I was visiting his country and told him that I was a pastor attending a church conference. He thought was nice and asked if I was a priest or if I was married. I replied that I was married and was not a priest per say… just small talk.
Yet his next question was very, very sad:
“Just between us…if you would like, I know a place where you can find some young girls…”
How sad is it that this man could ask THAT question right after I told him I was a pastor and a married man. Either one of those items should have told him not to ask me that question.
Yet, as he said once I turned his offer down, a lot of male tourists go to the Philippines and Asia looking for young girls to have sex with. They travel alone on business or on a pleasure trip to the islands with the knowledge that no one knows them here…. it is crazy and sad….very sad…
I don’t know… I knew this type of thing happens everyday over here – shoot it happens back home in the States – it is just that I’ve never had anyone try to ‘hook’ me up before. 😕
May the Lord be with those young ladies where ever they are and may He change that taxi drivers heart.
