Students from the International Justice Mission at Western Washington University Club (IJM at WWU) blessed us with the opportunity to exhibit information about Hope4Justice at their presentation of “Justice(is) LOVE” on February 24th at Norway Hall. “Justice(is) LOVE”was a Two-hour worship and performance experience that took the audience through the realities of global modern-day slavery. With narration from Ekklesia Pastor Garret Shelsta, several students from IJM at WWU gave heart wrenching renditions depicting victims of Human Trafficking in the role as slaves in a brothel, brick kilns, farms, domestic servitude, and forced labor camps experiencing abuse beyond what we can imagine. The hope of Justice(is) LOVE was to educate and share opportunities to find practical ways to get involved with the fight to end Human Trafficking.
Hope4Justice is so proud of all the students whom faithfully involve themselves with the IJM at WWU Club; responding to God’s call to seek justice, to care for the orphan and the widow, and to set the oppressed free. Throughout the school year the IJM at WWU Club meets every other Monday to connect with students at WWU and members of the Bellingham community to raise awareness about social injustice and put an end to Huan Trafficking. Along with Justice(is) LOVE, awareness includes International Justice Mission activities such as Freedom Fast, Dresscember, and last weekend’s Stand for Freedom (Standing at WWU’s Red Square for 24 hours to raise awareness about the issue of Human Trafficking).
Hope4Justice and IJM at WWU could not do this work without God's help. Please continue to Pray with all of us as we seek justice for the oppressed.
