AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF PHILIP MATHEWS
Philip Mathews lived nineteen years on earth. He was a typical teenager in every sense of the word–but his very birth and life was anything but typical.
After being born with a cleft palate, holes in his heart, absent right ear and eye, and missing parts of his brain, Philip Mathews was given little chance of survival. But he did survive and go on to live 19 years of purpose, becoming an international motivational speaker and advocate for the unborn and unseen spreading his message of hope across 48 states and 15 countries. The wisdom, insight, and truth that is shared from these pages will inspire you to take a new perspective on your own life and apply the principles to live a purposeful life.

Human Trafficking Awareness
Women who have been rescued from human trafficking rings have limited options when it comes to employment. They must begin with basic education and training skills. Once these are mastered, the capital is provided for them to begin their own product line of items to sell. With a stable income, they will never return to the life of a slave again. And their children will be raised in an environment of safety and stability, where they attend school.

Disaster Relief Management
When a natural disaster strikes, some of the “first responders” are human traffickers. They prey on the vulnerable, and exploit their bodies for the basic human needs of food, water and shelter. Too many children have been lost, displaced or orphaned after a disaster, and evil works to take advantage and destroy their lives. LWR’s vision is to end human trafficking and prevent it before it starts. When the immediate rescue is completed, and deployed teams return home, there is still much repair and restoration that has to take place in the community that has suffered loss.
