Let me tell you a story


If you’ve dropped in here over the past couple of months I’m sure you know that I took a trip in December last year to Bangladesh and India to see the excellent work being done through SIMaid’s Girls off the Streets.

I’m amazed at the work that is being done to bring hope and healing to young women who have been rescued from human trafficking. Young women who have been sexually exploited and sold into prostitution are now growing in confidence as they learn to trust again and develop life skills that will give them a strong foundation for life ahead. Girls off the Streets is giving them a future and importantly, letting them know that they are truly loved.

If you haven’t already, let me encourage you to check out Girls off the Streets and find out how you can be part of this project which is bringing hope to those who had lost hope.

If you live in the Perth area I want to let you know that I’ll be talking about the trip and sharing some insights tomorrow night (Sunday the 17th) from 6:30 at Thornlie Church of Christ. I’ll be sharing the stage with Kieran Johnson of SIMaid who was also a part of the trip. We’ll both be talking about our experiences and giving you practical ways to fight human trafficking.

The church is at 319 Spencer Road, Thornlie. It’d be great if you could make it and I’d love to catch up with you after the service.

If you can’t make it but you’re part of a church or other group around Perth, and you’d like to hear more, I’m looking for more places to speak up for young girls who can’t. Get in touch with me via my Contact Page so that we can arrange a time and date.
