love 146

speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves;
ensure justice for those being crushed.
yes, speak up for the poor and helpless,
and see that they get justice.
{proverbs 31:8-9nlt}

this year at blog sugar, we collected money for love146.
my friend danielle was the spokeperson for our event.
she's leading a task force with her family to help with this organization.
it was my pleasure to give to this cause at blog sugar.
i'm wondering though, is there something else i can be doing?
start a task force of my own? i'm seeking the lord as to what he'd have me do.
for now, i'll share this video with you and encourage you
to check out love146 and their mission to end child sex slavery.
this is a real thing.
a real hurt.
a real sin.
do you ever think about it?
have you ever prayed about it?
today is a great day to begin!

  4. Thanks for sharing this, Hannah! I think this is an amazing cause and it is awesome that you and Danielle are spreading the word about this horrific injustice. I have followed the International Justice Mission for quite some time - the do crazy covert rescues. It's pretty amazing. I can't wait to learn more about love146.
