Battling a Giant!

 

 

CAMBODIA-WOMEN-TRAFFIC-RESCUED  Most of you have heard at least a little about how God has broken my heart for those caught in the sex trafficking trade.  One of Cedar Creek’s first steps to fight this global giant was to partner with a home in South Asia that takes in minor girls after they are rescued from this terrible life.  Below is an excerpt from their most recent newsletter, names and locations have been changed for security, but we still invite you to pray for the workers and girls you will read about.

 

“Working at the home is full of joy, most of the time.  But there are also times of sadness, of loss, of wondering, “What if…” and “If only….” We found out in January that, as we suspected, our two runaway girls returned home. Home to the same houses out of which they were engaged in prostitution after school. The same homes from which they came to us so lice infested, the bathroom floor was littered with more black dots than I could count.

 

We have learned that one of the girls, “Lydia,” gave birth in December to a beautiful baby that, tragically, died of neglect. The details are fuzzy, but we know that “Lydia’s” health was also in danger and a local non-profit in the area stepped in and assisted her, taking her to a hospital and they are now trying to get her back into school. The second girl, “Mara,” returned home, but her family was forced to leave their rented house, so we do not know what has become of her or the baby she carried.

When we received the news about our girls, we began making plans to travel to their region to investigate.  However, this area is very insecure and some recent events are making it unsafe for us to go at this time. 

Please continue to pray for “Lydia” and “Mara” that the local nonprofit working with “Lydia” would return her to our home where she is safe, and that “Mara” will be found.

On a happier note, we received 3 new volunteers in January.  They will be with us from 6 months – 2 years.  We are excited to have them.  We have also heard of 2 girls from our region that have recently been rescued in other areas of our country and we are hoping that they will be sent to our home to begin their recovery.

Thank you for sharing in this journey with us.”

This is why we are doing Momentum.  To unleash the generosity of Cedar Creek Church to be the hands and feet of Jesus to the “least of these” in our community and around the world.

If you would like to know how we are partnering locally or globally against sex trafficking please send an email to outreach@cedarcreekchurch.net.

Thanks for joining the battle!

Banks Mill folks Being The Church (Part #1)

Last weekend (2/22/14) we had a few folks show up to Be the Church!  We had a great time and helped a few folks too.

One project was right outside our front door.  As we were gathering to go out, this gentleman was trying desperately to get his and our mailbox areas cleaned up.  So “See a need, meet a need” and we did.  He explained to us that he was actually on his way to Atlanta to visit with his daughter.  We told him to go on we got this!

Our next project was on Murray ave.  We met Mis Kim.  Her dad actually called me asking if we could help his daughter.  She is a disabled single mom who needed some help getting some limbs off of her house.

These guys did an amazing job at getting the trees off of her house.

Even the kids had fun!
