Request from Engedi Refuge Ministries
I would like to take an opportunity to reach out and let you know about our need for housing staff at the Engedi safe house. We are in a season of change. Our House Manager has resigned, so we are looking for a new live in manager or looking at the possibility of staffing it with part-time shift staff. We are looking for a mature single woman who feels called to minister full time. If you or someone you know may be interested, please call Lea at 360-922-7600 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org for a complete job description.

Assist us in booking our upcoming tour!
We are headed to WA DC in June for the annual National Center on Sexual Exploitation conference, NCOSE Summit. We are hosting a booth to assist in influencing and educating leaders in sex trafficking prevention. We also have the opportunity to learn from industry leaders from around the world about how to help eradicate Sex Trafficking.
After the conference we are traveling (June 16-30) back to Washington State across the US. We will be stopping at various cities to educate the body of Christ on sex trafficking prevention. We are lining up speaking engagements now!
What do we need from you? If you live or know someone in the top half of the US that would help us by hosting a Sex Trafficking Prevention Night, please let us know ASAP so that we can line it up and get the information to the appropriate people! Contact Josh at JP@saintsandabolitionists.com

Something to think about:
The average lifespan of a sex trafficking victim is 7 years from the time the trafficking begins. If a child is trafficked at 13, she is likely to be dead before her 20th birthday. Say a prayer today for all the mothers in our community and around the world grieving their lost children.

A nationwide training program is focused on truck drivers as a means to stop sex trafficking. That training is now taking place in Nebraska.
A 4/11/19 Truckers Against Trafficking Facebook post says, "900 people are purchased for sex every month – and that’s just in Nebraska.
Truckers Against Trafficking is doing something about it.
The organization launches its Nebraska chapter this month with a day-long training for all Nebraska State Patrol officers who overlap or work with commercial vehicles in Grand Island.
The group enlists truckers to call out suspicious activity they see and equips them with the necessary tools to do so. Truck stops and their employees have also proven to be valuable partners in the effort to identify and stop sex trafficking. (Read the full articleHERE.)
