Project Hope: Helping Survivors of Human Trafficking

Published by:

Joyce Meyer Human Trafficking

From Joyce Meyer:

“Today is Human Trafficking Awareness Day. Hand of Hope is actively working to rescue and restore those trapped in this horrific industry.

“THE SEX SLAVE INDUSTRY—also known as “human trafficking”—is a modern day atrocity that exists far below most of our awareness. We tend to assume it isn’t much of a problem in the United States. But the truth is, human trafficking happens everywhere. And our largest cities, such as Los Angeles, are hubs for trafficking in America.

The facts are shocking. It is estimated there are more than three hundred thousand victims of human trafficking right now in the U.S. alone. Fifty percent of them are under the age of 18. Approximately 10,000 women in Los Angeles are currently trafficked in underground brothels. These victims lose their identity, dignity and hope.

And only one percent are ever rescued.”

Epiphany began Wednesday, January 6, 2016. Epiphany means “manifestation.” On this day we celebrate the revelation of Christ to the Gentiles – that is, to all nations. Some Christian traditions celebrate three (3) great epiphanies on this day: the magi’s adoration of the Christ child, Jesus’ baptism in the Jordan River, and his first miracle, in which he turned water into wine. The word and sacraments are for us the great epiphany of God’s grace and mercy. We go forth to witness to the light that shines brightly in our midst.
