Help Fight Teen Prostitution

My life was forever changed last year when I met thirty amazing young women who had been rescued from a living hell of forced prostitution due to poverty and total absence of fathers to protect them. I have committed to support these young women who are learning to live in victory, and to combat fatherlessness by training pastors and developing materials that will build strong husbands/fathers and intact families.

Will you help me stop child sexual trafficking and prostitution? 
 
Please see the picture of these amazing overcomers and who have been rescued! I will be headed to Managua, Nicaragua as co-leader of a 10 men man team from November 1 – 8, to work with families and pastors to build stronger local churches and families. This will be the third year of our team going from Christ Church through our Missions Department - CC Global, and in partnership with Forward Edge who run Villa Esperanza.
 
On this trip, we will:
 
1)   Support Villa Esperanza– home of 30 girls rescued from teen prostitution by meeting and encouraging the girls through several special events.
 
2)   Host a Pastor’s conference- to train local and regional Pastors in the TRANSFORMED curriculum, which will then be shared in churches throughout Nicaragua. This is designed to build stronger husband/fathers resulting in intact and healthy families which is the greatest deterrent to teen prostitution.
 
3)   Leave training and discipleship materials- including TRANSFORMED books and TRANSFORMEDdiscipleship manuals in Spanish to build strong Men’s Ministries in local churches throughout Nicaragua.
 
4)   Work with local workers and churchmembers - to build stronger families.
 
Can you help me raise $600 by Friday, September 21 to purchase my airline ticket? 
 
For every donation of $30 or more received, I will mail you a copy of my book TRANSFORMED.
 
Nicaragua has one of the highest rates of sexual violence against girls in the world. A staggering 82% of sex abuse victims were children in 2014: 3,065 aged 0-13 and 1,897 aged 14-17. Nine out of 10 victims were female, and more than 80 percent knew their abuser.
 
Thank you for investing and making a difference in lives!
