My awareness of human trafficking began while listening to a radio program about a woman who was helping trafficked women in Europe. While listening to her interview, I felt God pulling my heartstrings. However, this particular story was about the trafficking in Europe, and I wasn’t sure how I could possibly help because human trafficking was “over there” (which in my mind was where trafficking happened). But, I’ll never forget what one of the women said to her rescuer: Why did it take you so long?
Then, some months later, a new pastor who had a real heart for trafficked people came to our church. What did his arrival mean for our church and how were we going to help stop human trafficking?
This quote comes from a blog written by Robin Stark who attends Church at the Crossing. To read more about Robin’s experience with Ascent 121 and ways that Church at the Crossing has engaged with us, read the rest of her post. Many thanks, CATC, for your partnership!
