REACH & RESCUE:
Last week's strip club comfort meal outreach resulted in one dancer accepting Christ in the locker room & the team praying for nearly all employees. We served Thanksgiving dinner early with a delicious meal of turkey breast, buttery stuffing, spinach salad & yummy pumpkin cupcakes & tiny pies. The outreach ended early in order to facilitate housing in the New Life Dream Center for a minor human trafficking victim & her two infant children rescued by our county sheriff's department.
Street outreaches with Word of Life Church resulted in 31 names being added to the Lamb's Book of Life. All outreaches resulted in human trafficking tips for law enforcement.
We hit the streets every Wednesday & the 2nd Saturday of the month. Our next strip club outreach is December 17th. If you are interested in donating Christmas gift items; bibles, journals, children's toys, gift cards & bags or preparing meal items, etc., please contact us.
AWARENESS & TRAINING:
The 3 day Anti-Trafficking & Caregivers Hands That Heal Training began last Saturday & will go through the next two Saturdays 9am - 3pm @ Word of Life Church. You can drop in for these trainings & if all three are attended you can become certified to be a trainer of trainers for FAAST (Faith Alliance Against Slavery & Trafficking).
Pastor Julie attended the 8 hour RCPI Human Trafficking Training sponsored by the Lee County Sheriff's Department Tuesday and has been invited to speak at FGCU's Human Trafficking Symposium in January 20-27.
If you are interested in hosting a training, raising awareness in your school, church or organization, please contact us. We can provide experienced speakers & over-comers to share their first hand & experiential knowledge regarding commercialized sexual exploitation and trafficking. Awareness is key to intervention & prevention of the 2nd largest crime in the world right now. Human trafficking is happening everywhere. We'll help you to learn, look & report. Together we can make a difference!
Currently the New Life Dream Center has 43 women, 2 teens (one pregnant) & 3 babies, in addition to approximately 80 men in the residential, recovery program/safe home. Less than 90% of the residents have the means to support the cost of keeping them there & we estimate that 1/2 the females are sex trafficking victims. They have been providing services to victims for over 26 years, including to former johns & pimps. With a 90% success rate with graduates, they have demonstrated they know what they are doing when it comes to recovery from commercialized sexual exploitation, human trafficking, sex addiction, domestic violence, drug & alcohol addiction. They need your help. Will you please consider giving today to help restore a life? For secure online giving: CLICK HERE
