She’s Someone’s Daughter

Modern Day Slavery – It is Everywhere!

Many people believe that human trafficking only occurs in foreign countries. This is a dangerous misconception.

WHY? Human trafficking exists in the United States and sometimes right in our own backyard.

WHAT? Do you know the facts? How can you help eradicate this horrible beyond belief crime? I challenge each Christian to ask God, “What would you have me to do in preventing abuse and making an impact for victims?”

He has shown you, O man, what is good; And what does the Lord require of you But to do justly, To love mercy,
And to walk humbly with your God? Micah 6:8 

KNOW THE FACTS – Sex trafficking is a booming business. The common age a child enters sex trafficking is 14-16, but many are only 12 years of age. Can you imagine – She’s Someone’s Daughter who has lost her freedom!

Christ Came to Set the Captives Free

flag-heartThere will be thousands of Americans celebrating our country’s freedom this weekend. Independence Day often is celebrated with fireworks, parades, barbecues, carnivals, concerts, and ceremonies. However, let us not forget large public celebrations, such as the Fourth of July, increase the demands of sex trafficking. Thousands of precious children and women will be violated in unimaginable ways as slaves held captive in sex trafficking. These captives long to experience freedom again.

The Good News of Salvation  Isaiah 61:1 (NKJV)

The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon Me,
Because the LORD has anointed Me
To preach good tidings to the poor;
He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,
To proclaim liberty to the captives,
And the opening of the prison to those who are bound.
