Today is the National Day of Resolve Against Human Trafficking. As I blogged earlier, this is also the Human Trafficking Awareness Month.
Two former Convoy of Hope intern friends, Glori Ann and Krissi are working in various places around the world with those who’ve been affected by the tragedy. They inspire me…a bit of their stories:
Glori Ann loves kids and helping people. After earning her Master’s degree, she served in the summer and fall of 2008 in places like El Salvador, Moldova, Armenia and the Republic of Georgia. She’s heading to Southeast Asia to work alongside an organization that helps rescue women and their children from the sex industry. She’ll use skills in areas like play therapy to help these children heal and find hope.
She’s leaving comfort and what she knows, to head to a place of wonder and challenge. She’s still raising funds to get there.
Krissi is in California preparing to head to the other side of the world. She’ll work in a village with a tragically high rate of innocent children abused in ways that shock the conscience. She’ll help them and others who’ve been hurt.
She wrote a song about how those imprisoned by the tragedy can be free. Here’s Wings:
She hopes to head out in the next few months…after she gets her funds raised.
People like Glori Ann and Krissi are my heroes. Today, the Day of Resolve Against Human Trafficking, I wanted to let you know about them.
