Let’s better understand sex trafficking and reach out to survivors from the Wellhouse!
Join us on Monday, May 1st at 6:30 p.m. in the fellowship hall as we discuss the book, The White Umbrella by Mary Francis Bowley and connect to survivors of human trafficking from the Wellhouse.
From the book:
Every year over 100,000 children in the United States are forced to do someone’s sexual bidding. Most of them are between the ages of 9 and 19. This is not some faraway, foreign problem. This is in our own neighborhoods, our own towns and cities.
Throughout these pages, read the stories of these girls and the people who have come alongside them to hold THE WHITE UMBRELLA of protection and purity over them on the road to restoration. See the need for these protecting, serving partners. Learn what it means to love and care for these survivors in action, prayer and support.
