Many of the women we meet in the sex industry rarely encounter people from the outside world. Come be a witness for Jesus to these precious souls.
Targeted areas will include local brothels, cantinas, street tracks, and backpage.
BRING YOUR LAPTOP because a phone bank will be set up to contact women being exploited online.
All comfort and risk levels will be accommodated.
The Christmas (December 23, 2016) Intervention will be passing out small gifts for the women in the industry along with a helpline number. Please BRING with you an assortment of stocking stuffer size gifts if possible. Suggested items include but are not limited to: gift cards in small amounts to fast food places, hand creams, nail polish, any new makeup item, fuzzy socks, little fancy soaps, candy, cookies, etc.
