Off the Air with Bryan Olesen

Bryan Olesen, founder and lead sing of Christian pop/rock band VOTA, decided to take a risk with the band's new album by giving it away. Yes, you heard it right, they are giving their album away for free. 

VOTA wanted to do something different, creative and meaningful with this album. That's why they are giving it away - hoping to draw attention to the tragedy that is happening at the border of Nepal and India where traffickers are taking young children across and selling them to brothels. At the same time, they hope to raise funds for this cause.

It feels like one of the most fulfilling things we've ever done as a band...

Bryan has always had a desire in his heart to use whatever talents he has to advance God's kingdom. So this falls right into the picture. As a band, they realised that they are giving their music to their fans. Not everybody is going to have the same heart for it. So whatever they have decided to do, it needs to be something simple and tangible. Thus the border stations were the best way to stop the trafficking. Their goal was to sponsor 5 border stations for 5 years. These stations have guards who are trained to catch the traffickers and to date, the border stations have saved hundreds of children from a tragic fate.

Dear God, sometimes my "testing" season seems so long. Please give me courage to endure until the end. Help me not to bail! You said you would bless me for hanging in there - I will not give up on you or your promises. You are with me and will see me through this trial.
