UNICEF estimates that there are nearly 2 million children in the commercial sex trade worldwide.
2 million kids just like my own. Just like our youth group students.
I can't handle that. At all. But ignoring the reality doesn't help either.
On Monday, August 24th at 11:30, I'll be meeting with Congressman Altmire to urge him to cosign the Child Protection Compact Act of 2009. As IJM states, "This bill supports poor countries’ efforts to stand up to criminals that traffic children by investing in effective law enforcement that puts traffickers and slave owners out of business and behind bars."
I'm SO excited to have gotten a meeting. And COMPLETELY freaked out.
Got some studying to do and prep work till then. Won't be online much.
If you're available on Monday and local, please consider coming along. Paul's Dad (and the pastor of our church) will be joining me. The more voices, the better.
If you can't make it this time, please pray. I would cherish your prayers much. I don't know what I'm doing. And this is out there for me. But 2 million times worth it.
Thanks and Much Love,
