Fantastic news!! Last night, we rescued the 15 year old trafficking victim that we had asked to you pray about! We are so grateful for:
- Our partners at the Houston Police Department and their tireless efforts
- Our dedicated team of prayer warriors who prayed her to safety
- Several special people who brought this all together
We are so glad she is safe and away from her traffickers. Pray for her restoration and healing!
She was rescued off of Bissonnet Street, which is essentially Houston’s red light district. So many of Free the Captives’ teen survivors have been bought and sold on this short, horrific stretch of road. You can help us shut down Bissonnet Street! Attend our #WeSeeYou Rally, where we focus on the johns/men who are buying our girls. It is time to tell them our girls are NOT for sale.
#WeSeeYou Rally: October 13-14, 2017 – thousands of Houstonians lining the streets of Bissonnet to say NO to the Johns
- Planning Meeting: Aug. 20, 2017, Bridgepoint Bible Church, 13277 Katy Freeway, Houston, TX 77079

The girls have been working so hard making candles this summer. And they smell heavenly, especially our newest scent – the “Freedom” candle! Don’t miss out!
