Over the past 5 years or so through college and various experiences in different parts of the world, I have developed a strong passion for working with exploited women and children.
About three years ago, while listening to a speaker from International Justice Mission I suddenly began to panic. I realized as I sat there that I was headed into a career that did not provide me with specific opportunities to work with the women and children this man was talking about. After this lecture was over I remember turning to my friends and saying, "I need to go in a different direction with my life. These stories we just heard- this is what I am passionate about".
I have walked the streets of Red Light Districts in Amsterdam, Bangkok and Las Vegas and time and time again I am affirmed in the decision I made that day as the heaviness on my heart for these women is so extreme.
I have taken this year off before I begin my degree in Social Work and have now been presented with an oppotrunity to attend a seminar in Amsterdam's Red Light District March 28-May 10th with Youth for a Mission called Shine: The Global Sex Trade & Christian Response. Here I hope to further develop the knowledge and tools I need to work towards justice for the exploited and enslaved peoples of this world.
Please join me in any form of support that you choose- prayerfully and financially. My tuition costs for the seminar are $1700 Canadian and any amount helps.
Thank you all for your continuoud support throughout all the adventures my God continues to lead me on.
