January was Human Trafficking awareness month in the United States. For our team, it was a great opportunity to share the real facts, statistics, and stories of Human Trafficking in our city, and state. Every number represents a story- a person. Every news report includes someone’s daughter, someone’s son.
As abolitionists it’s easy to see the numbers as just facts on a screen. As new details for a presentation. My prayer is that we never become desensitized to the reality of human trafficking. That our burden would always be fresh, and our passion always fueled.
Although January is over, the issue doesn’t end…therefore our work for freedom continues. As we work throughout the year to bring more attention to this issue, I pray that you would consider what you can do towards this issue? What influence do you have that would help to bring freedom to others? What skills / talents do you have that would help this fight?
I strongly believe that this fight cannot be won by one person, one group- but every person doing their part, and contributing to see that every person be free.
Human trafficking has many faces, many possible scenarios, yet all evil, and all inhumane. All requiring different levels of attention, and all requiring a long term healing process.
Will you join me in praying for this issue? For praying for our city, and this problem? Perhaps you don’t live in San Antonio, TX. Pray for this issue in your city. This crime happens in major cities, as well as rural areas, and suburbs.
No can do everything, but everyone can do something. First things first, let’s pray.
