We're into our fourth season with Love Runs! As International Half-Marathon walkers, this has been quite a journey for us personally and as part of a team mission. Our overriding purpose continues to be gaining freedom for human trafficking victims who are trapped as slaves for sex, forced labor and domestic servitude.
While we are grateful for the loyal support we've received for our mission from family and friends in the past, we ask yet again for your support because the horrific and "hidden in plain sight" problem of human trafficking has not been conquered--not even in our own communities. We have heard numerous personal stories of "girls next door" now rescued, who were lured by the promises and entangled in the lies of those who exploited them.
Your support is important to us in three primary ways: encouragement, prayer, and donations to be used by local agencies, such as Vista Maria, S.O.A.P. and the Salvation Army, that rescue and provide recovery services to trafficking victims In our area.
No amount of encouragement, prayer or donation is too small for the collective good it can accomplish!
Thank you for all that you do to help us help them.
