If you’ve ever watched a movie, read a blog or a book that dealt with oppression – I know you’ve felt it: That desire to DO SOMETHING. And yet, we often feel that dishes, laundry, work, grocery shopping and yard work sap us of our will power and we just don’t know where to start. How can little ol’ me make a difference? I’m not Jen Hatmaker or Oprah!
Well, maybe we start small – and band together. I’m OK by myself, but so much stronger when my gal pals are with me. So here we go girls –
We’re having a “band together party” to deal with one of the biggest problems in AUSTIN – slavery. Yes. Slavery. Here are the facts. Specifically human sex trafficking.
We’ll talk with Redeemed Ministries and help support a woman that is walking in the Light now. Learning how to support herself and start a new life.
Redeemed Ministries mission is to bring Christ’s loving redemption and amazing liberation to those trapped and exploited within the commercial sex industry and/or by human trafficking for sexual exploitation or forced labor. We focus on outreach, aftercare and advocacy and are located in Houston, Austin and Dallas.
Women who have been rescued out of sex trafficking and are in our aftercare program make coasters as a healthy means of supporting themselves and transitioning back into society. This allows them to save money to get on their feet and start a new life. By hosting a coaster party, not only is Hope Chapel bringing awareness to the issue of sex trafficking, but supporting one of our women living in Austin! Please come join us to learn more about sex trafficking in our city and how you can combat the issue.
YOU CAN HELP! And it’s so much better than the dishes.
The Special details:
When: Saturday night, August 23rd, 6 – 8pm
Where: Hope Chapel – the den upstairs
We’ll have light food and the chance to here from Calli from Redeemer Ministries and help support a woman making the transition to a new life out of slavery.
