To The Praise of His Glory

Approximately 27 million people a year are trafficked worldwide for labor and sexual exploitation. Of these, 80 percent are female and 50 percent are children. OMPC member, Beth Ann Wilbur, and a group of her friends are building them a house.



In 2008, Beth Ann Wilbur was diagnosed with a tumor in her pancreas. Everyone - including her doctors - expected the worst. Just before she was scheduled for a second CAT Scan and endoscopy ultrasound, Beth Ann was prayed over at her church in Winter Park, Florida. Days later, the CAT Scan showed signs that a tumor had been present... but it was gone. 

The Wilbur family had received a miracle, and Beth Ann felt called to give back. “I was healed,” she says, “I was given a great gift, and I didn’t want to waste it.” 



Beth Ann committed herself to engaging in God’s Larger Story; a story that includes helping the least and the lost, and providing a safe place for victims of sex crimes and human trafficking. “I first saw the effects of sexual exploitation and human trafficking when we lived in Japan. I couldn’t get over the fact that there were so many blonde-haired, blue-eyed girls inside the nightclubs and strip clubs... I found out later that many of them were there against their will. They were slaves.”



She started researching and praying about how she might be able to help victims. “This is an epidemic that is reaching far outside of the United States, but it’s also right here at home,” she says, “there’s no place for these girls to go. No home. No family. No community of believers to give them hope and share the gospel.”



Beth Ann is currently working with a group of like-minded women to provide a solution. Inheritance House will be a 10-bed facility that will offer recovery and restoration for girls 18 years of age and younger. They are awaiting 501C-3 status to begin raising funds to purchase the home. 

“It has been a slow process, but God is continuing to provide. We joined OMPC in January 2012, and have received so much support and encouragement for our church community,” she says. “At every turn, Oak Mountain leadership have been there with us; to pray, advise, encourage and help us stay focused on the goal.”



In him we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to the purpose of him who works all things according to the counsel of his will, so that we who were the first to hope in Christ might be to the praise of his glory. In him you also, when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and believed in him, were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until we acquire possession of it, to the praise of his glory. - Ephesians 1:11-14
