Traffick Jam 2011

Well, friends, my prayers for a girls' getaway have been answered, I think. {Love that God of mine.}

My cyber-friend, 
{ok, I have to be delicate here...she may not claim me...she has scads of real and cyber-friends...but we are legitimate facebook friends...

...and now, she's probably rethinking that}

...anyway...Marla {of Radical read-along fame} wrote about an opportunity last night and I'm jazzed. Maybe you will be, too. 

She is co-coordinating a local leg {she's in Central am I} of a national benefit walk: Traffick Jam 2011. The funds raised by the sponsored walkers {that's you and me} will be used to beat back the darkness of human trafficking in Cambodia. The evil these children endure breaks the heart of God. And it should break ours.

In one day, we can help bring child sex trafficking to a grinding halt.

Do you have goose bumps, yet?

Read her post, say a prayer, hug your babies, then let me know what you think.

I want to get a team of walkers together! May 7th...10 miles! Barring any unseen developments, I'm in and would love for you to join me. And if you can't walk, you can sponsor. My goal is to find 10 sponsors for $10 each. God can use us mightily!

 Are you up for the challenge?

{Post edit: I hope I don't sound too flippant in this post...I have been compelled in prayer for this very subject, wondering what I could do here on the ground in my cozy life. Truth is, human trafficking is not just a world away, but its victims are in our midst. Bottom line: I am truly touched by the gentle nudging and timing of God and want to be used by Him when and where I can. I think this is an opportunity for me to get on board with Him.}
