website recommendations

In a little over a week my friend, Terri, and I will be hosting a Human Trafficking Awareness Event! I am super stoked and have been giving my powerpoint program lots of lovin'. Terri is also going to be my travel companion in June when I head to Vegas for an anti-trafficking event! God has been orchestrating some cool stuff...so cool that I might have to write a rap song about it just for you, Jenna!

Anyway, I have some info I thought I would share for any who are interested:

I just posted this morning about the Leadership Summit. Last year, Gary Haugen spoke. He is the founder of International Justice Mission, an organization that fights for justice for the oppressed- including victims of trafficking. Have you been to their site- it's amazing what they are doing! I think you'd be very interested. www.ijm.org

Can't wait to hear your rap....that should be interesting! :)
