More awareness. More light on being a rescue to those in trafficking. Here are a few ways your church family can bring light to justice and the evil of human trafficking.
1) Prayer Prayer Prayer. It truly works. Ask your Pastor to pray about this publicly. On a personal note, there is a 31 Days To Freedom reading plan by Abolition International in the YouVersion Bible app that will enlighten you and bring you to prayer as well.
2) Education. Plan an awareness and seminar based event to educate your church family and community. For example, Christine Caine, the founder of The A21 Campaign will be in Huntsville, Alabama Thursday, July 17, 2014. She has taken on the challenge of bringing freedom to those being trafficked in America and in Greece. For details, visit TheRockFamily.org Be sure to visit Stella’s Voice as well.
3) Know the active organizations making a difference on a local level and even attend the local Human Trafficking Task Force (Huntsville and Madison County AL) to stay updated. The Wellhouse Birmingham is a great place for the rescued and survivors.
There are many things your church family can do, yet this list is a great way to get started. Hope to see you Thursday.
Being the life of the party ….. I can do that. Planning one….. not so much. Here are a few quick snacks and healthy treats you can do with family and friends to celebrate the Fourth of July today. The fruit skewers and patriotic ice cream sandwiches are my favorite. Glad to have found Stephanie & Matilda of Primrose Makeup. Enjoy freedom today and please say a prayer for those who are seeking freedom and rescue.
This month is Human Trafficking Awareness Month and many states are catching on, yet lacking the resources to go further with rescues and housing.That’s a very good reason why the more people know, the more will be done. What if you were walking through downtown in your city and saw this? Would you do anything? Would you tell anyone? This #EndItMovement awareness video in Atlanta was such a powerful statement. Event through The Final Four tournament being held, only an estimated 60k bystanders witnessed this.
If you witness or see anything suspicious, pimp control, or forced labor, please call the Polaris Project at 1-888-3737-888 for tips or even information of resources in your area.
