Be Her Freedom

This weekend, we had an amazing guest speaker at church--Christine Caine, from Hillsong Church in Australia.  She is staying this week to speak at the women's conference that I will be attending Thursday through Saturday and I am SO excited.  She shared a powerful message at the weekend services... prefaced by a video for a ministry that she supports:  The A21 Campaign.  I was in tears by the end of the video, which shares about sex trafficking.  The statistics were overwhelming.

The story struck home for me because it was about a young Bulgarian girl who was trapped in this world.  My fifteen-year-old cousin lives in Bulgaria.  All I could think about through the video was "What if that was her?"  But for the grace of God, protecting my family serving as missionaries in that country, it very well could be.

I plan to support this ministry first and foremost through prayer and fasting.  I also aim to raise awareness and to support this incredible ministry financially when I can.

The average age of victims is 14.
99% of victims are NOT rescued.
Be Her Freedom.
