some toe-steppin...

Dan

I recently finished reading the book "Kisses from Katie". How fitting since yesterday was National Human Trafficking Awareness Day. The book was amazing and hard and beautiful and honestly, it stepped all over my toes and made me weep. I'm not gonna share much about her story - you just need to go and read it for yourself. 

She wrote many things in her book that were challenging to me as I read...

but this got me...

"The truth is that there are children like this all over the world; sick, starving, dying, unloved, and uncared for. The truth is that the 143 million orphaned children and the 11 million who starve to death or die form preventable diseases and the 8.5 million who work as child slaves, prostitues or under other horrific conditions and the 2.3 million who live with HIV add up to 164.8 million needy children. And though at first glance that looks like a big number, 2.1 billion people on this earth proclaim to be Christians.  The truth is that if only 8 percent of the Christians would care for one more child, there would not be any statistics left."  (pg. 91-92)

So, what do I do with that? What do we do with that?

I don't know yet - but we must do something... 

I'm praying that God would allow Dan and I yet another opportunity to love and serve those around the world. I also want to be proactive here and now. A friend recently sent me a link to see how many "slaves" work for me. I kinda chuckled a little when I got the link but took the quiz anyway. It was quite eye-opening. It's a topic that we don't want to talk about much but that we must open our eyes and our hearts too.  Will you pray for the millions around the world who are longing to be set free?

 If you want to follow Katie's journey, check out her blog at www.kissesfromkatie.blogspot.com and go and get her book! I promise you, it will step on your toes, and that is sometimes a good thing! 

You can also find out how many slaves you have working for you and do something about it!
