URGENT: Stop Sex Trafficking Now!

posted by Tom Davis
      As you read this letter there are over 2 million children forced into prostitution and sex slavery.
 
      This can be prevented and we can do something about it. These girls need our help and there isn’t time to waste.

      Right now, pimps and prostitution rings are targeting our precious, young girls. They wait for them to leave the protection of the orphanage, and then offer them a "job."

     Many of the girls simply disappear: never heard from again by their friends.  But sometimes you glimpse this horror.

     Like the girl who was flung from the cab of a truck once her "client" was finished with her. She was paralyzed, never to walk again.

     Or the young woman the police found in a ditch on the side of a busy road. Killed at the truck stop where she worked as a prostitute.

 
      These were kids that could have been helped by our programs.

     One of these stories is too many…2 million children is unfathomable. This is a direct result of evil having its way on the earth.

 
     As Peter tells us, “Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.” I Peter 5:8

      We can’t let him continue to destroy lives. You can stop this, and help reclaim a child's future.



      HopeChest stops sex trafficking before it starts. In Russia, we are taking girls into residential living centers and community centers to actively protect them from the commercial sex trade. We identify girls early, while still in the orphanage.  
 
       Our staff form meaningful relationships to role model what successful living looks like. And when that girl leaves the orphanage, she knows exactly where to go for help–to HopeChest. She is not alone.

       Amongst our girls, there is no sex trafficking. In fact, our transitional living homes have a 90%+ rate of helping girls find true independent life. This is the reality of God’s Kingdom in action.

      Right now these girls need you. Please go to http://www.HopeChestPartners.org and click the GIVE button to make a gift today.

 
      You can make a gift in honor of a special person this Christmas. Perhaps you will honor someone who mentored you as we are helping these young women?

      Help us stop sex trafficking now by reaching more girls in Russia today and into 2010.
