Do you remember where you were when you learned about 9/11? It was much the same for me when I first learned about Human Trafficking back in November of 2013. My world stopped turning as I learned that there are more people enslaved today than the whole of slaves during the great abolition of slavery in the 1800s. How could I have not known this was happening, not just in foreign countries, but RIGHT HERE, in AMERICA?!? Join me as we seek to understand what Human Trafficking is, how it is not biblically endorsed, steps to recognize someone being trafficked, and become a Freedom Fighter. Don’t let the ugliness of this horrific condition make you hide your head, but instead, speak up for those who can’t speak for themselves. Please. Every night, as we sleep in our warm, safe homes, let us not forget to pray for, and fight for, those in bondage.
