Mark your calendars for our next Justice Sunday on January27, 2019. More details soon.
Because God loves justice, so should we! And He has called us to
“Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves; ensure justice for those being crushed.
Yes, speak up for the poor and helpless, and see that they get justice.” Proverbs 31:8-9
President Ronald Reagan used an old poem by Helen Kromer as a challenge to all of us. It goes like this:
One man awake can awaken another.
The second can awaken his next door brother.
The three awake can rouse the town,
Turning the whole place upside down.
And the many awake make such a fuss,
They finally awaken the rest of us.

Most people don’t believe that slavery still exists today, but it does.
There are still 27 million people in slavery around the world. The US Government estimates that 14,500-17,500 people are brought into the US each year to be used as slaves. Human Trafficking is the second largest organized crime, behind illegal drug sales. The things these victims experience daily are unimaginable. Trafficking victims are often tricked into slavery by false promises of work and a better life. “Human Traffickers tend to prey on impoverished people who live in countries with little access to education, health care, or jobs.
We MUST educate ourselves and join the fight against modern day slavery.
“None of us are free if one of us is enslaved.”
Children at Risk
Just a few stats for your own info:
**According to the Global Slavery Index, 45.8 million people are enslaved in the world today.
**1 in 5 of the 11,8000 runaways reported to the National Center for Missing and Exploited children in 2015 were likely sex trafficking victims.
**73% of children who have offline sexual encounters with offenders do so more than once.
Let’s work together to bring awareness, freedom, and hope to victims everywhere, both internationally and globally!
