On Monday I'm heading to Russia and Moldova with a few great friends: Anne Jackson, Brad Riley, Pres of Iempathize, and the photo/video guru, Simon Scionka. Why? Because we're sick of the evils forced on young girls who are being lured and kidnapped in the sex-trade industry.
Moldova has the highest rate of sex-trafficked women in the world – over 20%. Did you hear that? How would you feel if 20% of the girls and orphans in your neighborhood simply disappeared forever and were forced to have sex with 20 men a day? What does God have to say about this?
We will be blogging every day we can and what I'm asking you is this – Please pick up our stories. Repost them, twitter them, use the videos, talk about these issues on Facebook, at your church, in your small group, wherever you are connecting with others.
Our goal is to find great partners on the ground and begin funding safe houses for girls in Moldova who have been rescued. In Russia, HopeChest has phenomenal programs that keep girls who come out of orphanages from ending up in these predicaments. We'll visit those places and introduce you to the girls who are being helped. We will also be talking about simple ways every single one of you can be involved in these issues and make a difference. We can eliminate this horror one life at a time. More to come, your prayers are greatly appreciated. Watch this video and join us.
