National Weekend of Prayer for the Fight Against Sex Trafficking

 

January 11-13, 2013

Women In Ministry Interim Director Susan Nash, invites EPC churches to visit our WIM web site (http://www.epcwomeninministry.org/) to learn more about the “Set Free Project” that addresses the horrors of sex trafficking. We ask that you join in prayer with us for fighting against this tragic evil. However, according to David Meyers with the Department of Homeland Security for Faith based and Neighborhood Partnerships, the national percentage for labor trafficking vs. sex trafficking is about 70-75%. Labor trafficking, modern day slave trade or human trafficking is comprised of primarily women – 50% of which are under 18 yrs. old. Labor trafficking and sex trafficking enslaves victims of both genders. Slavery victims internationally cry out for voices to help end their bondage.

On January 25th, a team of women, including six from the EPC, will leave for Cambodia with Global Transitions to partner with the Shine Career School. Team Members are: Susan Nash (WIM Interim Director) Memphis, TN; Pam Harvey (National Director of Advocacy and Education) Greenwood Community Church , Centennial, CO); Amber Walker (Downtown Church Memphis, TN); Georgia Smith (Advent Presbyterian Memphis, TN); Wendy Dabbous (Woodland Presbyterian Memphis, TN); and Therese Fuglaar (First PC Houma, LA). Please pray specifically for these women for safety, for favor with the Cambodians, and for effectiveness of engagement. Be looking for a report in February.

Please remember to give to our EPC WIM “Set Free Project”- Faith Focus (www.epcwomeninministry.org), which provides funding for Hope House in Ashville, NC and for Global Transitions, Centennial, CO, as they fight against this increasing worldwide problem. We also invite your church to participate financially to “Per Women Asking” (http://www.epc.org/giving/per-member-asking/) which provides funding for our ministry.)

Join Women In Ministry in Cambodia

Join-Women-In-Ministry-in-CambodiaSponsored by the “Set Free Project”, Transitions invites you to be part of a select group of world-changing participants on an engagement trip to Cambodia with founders, Athena and James  Pond and Pam Harvey, (Greenwood Community Church).  The trip will take place January 25 – February 2, 2013.

Be inspired by amazing survivors whose lives have been transformed at the Dream House in Phnom Penh after being rescued from sexual slavery.  This trip will be “hands on” while spending time getting to know the girls and staff through fun activities, a service project, and learning about the Transitions success philosophy from their phenomenal local team.

The team will begin to understand the culture, the depth of the problem of sexual trafficking, and how we can each help provide profound solutions.  By combining our shared wisdom and talents, we will form world-changing alliances that last long after we’ve returned home.
