NOT For Sale
There has been a recent increase in the awareness of human trafficking. Not only as a problem that occurs in other countries, but in America and as we have learned over the past year, in Virginia. It is hard to imagine that children, teens and adults are being bought and sold, a big business.
In late 2011, Straight Street started seeking what our role would be as a ministry in assisting victims and working with law enforcement. It has been difficult to learn about this modern day slavery and how it is often over looked or not acknowledged as a problem in many communities. Well, after working with law enforcement, it is a problem and I am thankful how God is allowing Straight Street to be a resource for both law enforcement and also victims. The relationships developed with law enforcement, schools, social services and other ministries has allowed Straight Street to become resource for information, education and help.
Our goal is to make sure that the victims know that they are loved and cared for, created with a purpose and loved by a heavenly Father. This is a ministry in the development stages and we will keep you informed on its progress, needs and ways to pray.
