Facts

There is ignorance on human trafficking and sex slavery.

Texas is a hub.

International issue but also domestic. 300K girls at risk in the USA.

1 in 3 of the 6K kids in the street are picked up by traffickers.

Trafficking is organized crime.

Intermission

Taking my intermission early to prep my apartment for our new roommate today.

Planning to come back at 2:30 for the talk on reducing demand (aka the need to purchase sex). Presentation will be made by Julie Waters of Free the Captives. I’ve heard amazing things.

Then, he’s Kellie Armstrong talk on Freedom Place.

Victims to Victors (cont)

God is in the business of redemption.

The process:
1. Victims need companionship.
2. Victims need community (of wounded healers) – it gives perspective on personal problem.
3. Victims need Love. Love in spending time.

An American downfall: as a people we are so specialized and qualified but claim, “We don’t know what to do.”
