Liz and other artists from YWAM Herrnhut had been deeply moved by their visits to countries like Ethiopia. They met orphans and heard about women trapped in the sex trade. They wanted to do something about it. “Music is the talent God gave me,” Liz realized. “Art is the biggest tool to reach our generation.”
She and several YWAM friends formed a musical group called Liz and the Lions. The band has teamed up with a YWAM arts ministry called Pick a Pocket. Together, they are working to raise awareness of sex trafficking and injustice in areas of extreme poverty.

YWAMers in North India are passionate about changing those odds. They want every Hindu to experience the goodness of God as shared in Jesus, and they are inviting you to help.
