I drawing that I did as an outlet during the later part of the event. - Lydia

Did you know that only 1-2% of the 27 MILLION people who are trafficked into sex slavery are EVER rescued out? Of those who do escape on their own, 20-80% are abducted back in? That victims are, at a usual LOW, forced to give their bodies to 40 people PER DAY or otherwise their families are killed and they are severely beaten?? That the average age is 12-14 years old? This is a modern day holocaust. Don’t blow off what’s going on, they need our help.”

Thank you everyone for all your support and prayers! The event was a huge success: we raised over 1500 dollars just from admissions, not including the staff and not including the donations, food, or merchandise that was bought! We are only a couple high school kids…we only were able to do this because of God and all the support around us. It was a huge privilege to be able to work together to make a difference in this way!

Until a few years ago, Sina was a sex slave in Phnom Penh, Cambodia as well. Incredibly, after escaping the hell of daily serial rape, she chose to go back and confront human traffickers like the one who enslaved her. Sina continues to go back to this underworld nearly every day, often risking her own life, to help women and girls out of sex slavery and into lives of self-sufficency and purpose.

Traffick Jam is happening this friday. I am so excited that we are able to do this event and people are learning about it and human trafficking. I am so excited to be a part of this small step and to see what difference our ripple is going to make when we get to heaven! Keep on praying for this event and most importantly for all the people effected by human trafficking. Thank you everyone for all your support! Every little thing makes a difference.
