Broward Girls Academy
Tonight I had an opportunity to partner with Youth for Christ Fort Lauderdale in sharing the HOPE of Christmas with teenage girls at the Broward Girls Academy. Girls here, ages 13-17, have been involved in sex trafficking. Some were victimized and forced into prostitution and others had to engage in "survival sex" for basic needs like food and shelter. As a result, many of these girls are now classified with serious-to-severe depression.
I'm not permitted to show their faces but know that a tremendous amount of tears fell as I spoke and in the end, 10 accepted Jesus! There was more tears as Jeff and I gave each girl a blanket to remind her of God's love and protection.
THANK YOU, friends, for your faithful support of this ministry that allows me to bring the gospel message to hurtling people in a unique way through my testimony. I ask you now to commit with me in praying for these young girls as they begin a new life in Christ.
