But for Warsaw’s David Grant, national director of Destiny Rescue, that distance has been broken down by faith, and he has become a voice for the millions of children trapped in the world of sexual exploitation.
Grant is originally from near Pontiac, Mich. He came to Winona Lake to study music, theology and Biblical studies at Grace College, where he also met his wife, Marah, a Warsaw native.
