While their ministry has been primarily focused on India, their heart to share their faith and see sexual slavery victims rescued and restored has carried them to over thirty countries around the world.
For 40 years, India has been the heart and focus of David’s ministry. Thousands of churches have been planted and scores of colleges established as a result of his boundless energy. While continuing his commitment to the needs of India, David is increasingly engaged in casting vision and the development of new Project Rescue ministries across Eurasia and Europe.

The song in question was instead cut by singer Fontella Bass, who like Franklin channeled the power and passion of her gospel roots to create some of the finest music of soul’s golden age. Born in St. Louis, Missouri, on July 3, 1940, Bass was the daughter of gospel vocalist Martha Bass, a longtime member of the renowned Clara Ward Singers. Her grandmother Navada Carter was also a professional gospel performer, and it was inevitable that Fontella follow suit, making her church choir debut at age five. Nevertheless, during the mid-’50s she rebelled against tradition, sneaking out of the house to sing secular R&B at local fairs and nightclubs. By 16, Bass was the house pianist at the St. Louis nightspot the Showbar, and in 1961 she joined local blues great Little Milton Campbell, later marrying the band’s trumpeter, fledgling jazz titan Lester Bowie. Bass first earned notice for her vocal on Little Milton’s 1962 hit “So Mean to Me,” soon followed by her Bobbin label solo debut, “I Don’t Hurt Anymore.” But when Campbell and his pianist Oliver Sain parted ways, Bass exited along with Sain, who named her lead vocalist of his Oliver Sain Soul Revue. Her second single, the Ike Turner-produced “I Love the Man,” followed on Turner’s Prann label in 1963. Bass then cut “Poor Little Fool,” a duet with Tina Turner issued on the Vesuvius imprint. And when she wasn’t performing with Sain and his group, she moonlighted as a solo act, playing gigs across East St. Louis under the alias “Sabrina.” After the 1964 release of the Oliver Sain Soul Revue’s debut effort, “Heavy Sugar,” the pianist escorted Bass and singer Bobby McClure to Chicago, where he produced their duet, “Don’t Mess Up a Good Thing,” for Chess Records’ Checker imprint. The single proved a Top Ten hit, and even after Bass left the group to mount a solo career, Sain remained a close collaborator. She relocated to Chicago in 1965 and late that same year scored the biggest hit of her career with her solo debut, “Rescue Me.” A buoyant dance classic made memorable by Bass’ impassioned, gritty vocal as well as the percolating bass of Chess session mainstay Louis Satterfield and Gene Barge’s dynamic horn arrangement, the single topped the R&B charts for a month and crossed over to the pop Top Five. One of the biggest-selling records in Chess’ storied history, “Rescue Me” remains an unqualified classic of the era and is a staple of oldies radio to this day, although many listeners now mistake the record as the work of Aretha Franklin, who ironically enough did not even enter the popular consciousness until two years later. Worse, Bass never received proper credit or financial remuneration for co-writing the song, and her subsequent battles with Chess execs earned her a reputation as a malcontent. The “Rescue Me” sound-alike “Recovery” followed in early 1966, reaching the R&B Top 20, but Bass’ run as a hitmaker proved frustratingly short, and after scoring a minor hit late that same year with “Sweet Lovin’ Daddy,” she never returned to the U.S. charts again. With her career mired in neutral, Bass exited Checker in 1969 and with husband Bowie — now a renowned avant-garde player best known for his work with the Art Ensemble of Chicago — relocated to Paris. There she collaborated with the group on an LP, the acclaimed The Art Ensemble of Chicago with Fontella Bass, but otherwise focused on raising a family until returning to St. Louis in 1971, renewing ties with Oliver Sain and signing to the Shreveport, Louisiana-based Paula label. The superb single “Who You Gonna Blame” anticipated the 1972 release of the Sain-produced Free, a remarkably soulful set that is by far the most memorable LP of Bass’ career. Attention from radio and retail was negligible, however, and after subsequent singles including “Now That I’ve Found a Good Thing” and “It’s Hard to Get Back In” flopped, she exited Paula in 1974, not resurfacing until three years later with the Epic single “Soon as I Touched Him.” Apart from occasional guest appearances with the Art Ensemble of Chicago, she spent the remainder of the 1970s and most of the 1980s as a homemaker, confining her musical pursuits to her Baptist church choir. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

1/04/2018 – Report of a man seen walking away from town into the tundra.
1/05/2018 – Report a woman lying on the ground outside of town.
1/06/2018 – Citizen calls to report a woman attempting to walk to Kwethluk, 18 miles away.
It goes on and on, detailing the efforts it took to find them.
There have been more than a dozen calls so far this month. Searches can last more than eight hours. One man was so hypothermic, he had begun removing his clothes.
The notes so far all have one thing in common, alcohol.
“Alcohol has always been available but it’s become more readily available now,” says Mike Riley, president of Bethel Search and Rescue (BSAR).
Bethel voted to allow liquor sales in 2015 for the first time in four decades.
“It’s causing a problem with people consuming alcohol while traveling between Bethel and villages, and that’s when they start having problems,” says Riley.
Bethel Search and Rescue is a volunteer organization. They have about 120 members, but the list of those who can respond quickly is closer to 20. Many of them have families, full-time jobs. The calls for help usually come in the early morning hours.
“We’ve been getting a little frustrated lately because it seems like everyone has been drinking.” says volunteer Perry Barr. “It was almost a nightly basis we were getting these phone calls for people drunk on the trail and our members were getting physically, and emotionally tired.”
Still, when the call for help goes out, volunteers always go.
“Some of them are friends or relatives that turn up missing or go into the water.” says Peter Atchak, former president of BSAR.
Many people in the organization have lost someone close to them.
“I got lost in the tundra for five days, froze some toes, some fingertips, and they brought me home.” Says volunteer Sam Samuelson. “So I’ve been giving back ever since.”
The organization says they have refocused efforts at prevention in recent years. By better marking trails, open water, and rough patches of ice road, they hope to prevent people getting lost.
