Hands that Heal
I attended a 3-day conference in Tegucigalpa March 9-11, 2016 to learn more about human trafficking.
The statistics and the methods that these criminals employ to lure vulnerable women and girls into the sex trade was almost unbearable. I will never forget feeling the shock as we heard the presenters share about horrifying true stories.
One of the presenters at the conference was Sarah Tellis of True Justice International. According to their website, "Human Trafficking is a $150 billion dollar industry, second only to drug trafficking. Human trafficking is a form of modern-day slavery in which traffickers use force, fraud, or coercion to control victims for the purpose of engaging in commercial sex acts or labor services against his/her will. Sex trafficking has been found in a wide variety of venues within the sex industry, including residential brothels, escort services, fake massage businesses, strip clubs, and street prostitution."

True Justice International also has a cool pearl ministry.
It was so fun to meet so many people at this conference.
