Did you know that approximately 80 percent of human trafficking victims are women and girls, and up to 50 percent are minors?
Did you know that worldwide, there are nearly two MILLION children in the commercial sex trade?
Staggering, isn't it? Breaks your heart, doesn't it?
Well, it breaks ours as well. That's why our next Connecting Point event is going to be all about bringing awareness to this awful practice. We bring you:
Next Monday, February 4th, at 7pm in the Ledford Center, the ladies of SEBTS
will gather to learn about, pray for, and find ways to support the victims of sex-trafficking.
Kimberly Merida, wife of Dr. Tony Merida, will share with us more of the heart-wrenching statistics and awful truths behind the sex-trafficking industry. She, along with an organization called Save Our Sisters, will help us learn about ways we can take action in this battle. We'll talk through ministry opportunities that are available and provide take home resources that will help you stay connected and continue the fight to rescue the victims of sex-trafficking.
To help us remember to pray for sex-trafficking victims, we'll also spend a few minutes painting our nails red. We've chosen the color red for two reasons; red is representative of the Red-Light districts that we so often associate with the sex-trade industry, and red also tends to be the color of love - the kind of love that we desire to show those who are suffering as captives.
Please join us as we spend time talking about and interceeding on behalf of the sex-trafficking industry.
