A young man had Redditors singing his praises after he got his uncle in trouble. But he also made life a lot easier for one poor soul in the process. Here is the full story.
He Had a Change of Heart
OP is a young man who recently left his church after a lifetime of worshiping with his family.
He now considers himself a nonbeliever.
They Won’t Let Him Go
But OP’s family isn’t quite ready to give up on him, and they keep trying to pull him back into the church.
They Want to Save Him
OP’s dad is particularly focused on bringing his son back into the fold.
The older man keeps sending church members out to try and “save” the young man.
Down on the Farm
During one recent such rescue mission, two church members showed up at OP’s farm to try and lure him back.
He Put Them to Work
When they showed up, the two young men offered to help OP around the farm, and he took them up on it.
The three of them chatted as they went about doing some chores.
They Made a Commitment
In the course of their conversation, OP learned that the other men were volunteers from another country.
They were on a mission trip and had committed to spending two years working with OP’s former church.
He Gave Them the Skinny
The men also talked about OP’s life and how he was doing. He also had the chance to tell them why he had stopped believing.
Their Mission Failed
Although the missionaries were not successful in pulling OP back into the church, they did strike up something of a friendship.
He Had a Breakthrough
The next week, one of the other young men called OP and told him that their visit had helped him a lot.
He Was Unsaved
It seems the volunteer was unsure about his own belief when he left home.
The conversation with OP cleared it up for him and he also now considers himself a nonbeliever.
He Wanted Out
Since his heart had changed, the volunteer wanted to leave OP’s former church and head home, but there was a problem.
It Hit Close to Home
The man’s volunteer coordinator refused to return the young man’s passport until he had fulfilled his 2-year obligation.
That coordinator happened to be OP’s uncle.
He Was a Corruptor
So OP called up his uncle and asked him to return the young man’s passport.
But the uncle accused OP of corrupting the other man and refused to release the volunteer’s documentation.
He Called Him Weak
OP told his uncle he would go to the police if he had to, but his uncle said he didn’t have the guts to turn him in.
He Made the Call
That was all the prodding OP needed.
He called the local police, who directed him to the embassy for the country where the volunteer was from.
He Was in Big Trouble
OP called that embassy, and they hit his uncle with a huge fine. They also gave him three days to return the volunteer’s documents before they charged him with human trafficking.
They Cut Him Loose
Faced with a brewing scandal, the church fired OP’s uncle from his job as a paid coordinator.
He Wanted to Punish Them
Now OP’s family is furious with him, and they think he planned the whole scheme to punish them and his uncle.
He May Lose Everything
They say OP’s uncle has too many physical problems to get another job and may end up on the street.
He Caused Big Trouble
OP feels bad that his uncle is in a bad spot because of him, and he wonders now if he overreacted. He’s second-guessing himself for going straight to the police.
He’s a Hero
Redditors overwhelmingly support OP’s decision to turn in his uncle. Most of them think the uncle and the church were holding the volunteers hostage and that OP is a hero for helping to set them free.
Many advise OP to stay as far away from his family and former church as he can.
