Look Beneath the Surface: Human Trafficking

I recently watched an eye opening video called Look Beneath the Surface on the topic of human trafficking that helps us see how brutal this industry truly is. Did you know we have more people enslaved to human trafficking now than at any other time in the history of the world? It is a huge industry.

Please take the next 7 days to pray for victims of human trafficking. Also, pray for us at Faith Church as we seek to build a group home to house children ages 6-17 to serve as a shelter to keep those children safe. In Lafayette, it was reported on WLFI on November 18, 2015, that there were already 50 arrests related to human trafficking in 2015. The problem is growing in our community as it is in the world at large. These children are some of the “least of these” that we are called to serve.

Watch this 13 minute video and pray. Thank you.
