Where Should She Go?
Posted on Wednesday, January 11, 2017 by
SHE’S ALONE. IT’S LATE, COLD, DARK, AND RAINING. THIS IS NOT WHAT SHE PLANNED FOR A FRIDAY NIGHT.
No. She wishes she was with friends. she wishes she could experience the life that most fifteen-year-old girls are experiencing. For her this is the only option.
She’s been abused by her father and her home life is unsafe. “Is it safe to stay here,” she asks herself. She leaves with no place to go, no food or shelter. She begins walking the streets looking for something, but she’s not sure what. just something and someplace to go.
He drives up, asks if she’s okay. She’s clearly not okay. He has money, a car, the ability to help provide food and shelter. He offers to give her a hotel room, a warm shower, a hot meal... what would you do? He wants something in return. The exploitation begins...
Sex Trafficking does not happen overnight. It is a systemic problem that is complicated and complex. For her, she is trying to find safety and in some ways, she’s found it. In 2017, we are looking toward providing a safe place for teens affected by Sex Trafficking. To provide an opportunity for new life offering care and support through loving relationships. A place where people who care about Jesus can be Jesus in that moment. To give life to her story.
