Gift Assembly This Saturday, Program Director Needed, Help Over-Comers Marrying, TIP Report, & More!

UTREACH GIFT & CARE PACKAGE ASSEMBLY THIS SATURDAY:  July 2nd 9am - noon, join volunteers at Barry University, Suite 500-2,  in assembling 50-100 outREACH gift bags and care packages for victims and survivors of commercialized sexual exploitation and human sex trafficking.  The theme this month is FREEdom™!  We are also in need of July 4th/FREEdom™ themed and inspirational books, bibles, jewelry, toiletries, candy, and gift items to be placed in the gift and care packages.  Last month we had students from 4 universities and ages 16-64 working together as team making gifts of love, hope, and truth. Make plans today to partner with us and become a modern day slavery abolitionist!

Kelly and Tajuan met when The Village (a reentry agency) and The WellHouse (a survivor led human trafficking service agency) combined efforts to fight human trafficking in Birmingham, Alabama. A friendship was formed & these two fell in love. Both Kelly and Tajuan are survivors, over-comer’s and have beat-the-odds to achieve their education (both have Master degrees), and to reach back into the same dilemmas they are survivors of to rescue others. Kelly and Tajuan both lead these nonprofit ministries. The work they do is not for financial gain and if they earn enough votes they can win their dream come true wedding, all expenses paid!  Please take a moment and simple click twice, one on the link and then to vote for them and thanks!

“ I, the LORD, have called You in righteousness,
      And will hold Your hand;
      I will keep You and give You as a covenant to the people,
      As a light to the Gentiles,
      To open blind eyes,
      To bring out prisoners from the prison,
      Those who sit in darkness from the prison house
."  Isaiah 42:6-7 NKJV
