An Early Christmas for our Girls!
“I did not believe in God. But He just blessed us right now. I wasn’t going to have Christmas because we are kinda broke. But then you dropped off these presents, this tree and decorations, and all this food,” said one of our teen trafficking survivors in shock and awe of the generosity of our amazing supporters.
Many of us will have a bountiful Christmas with gifts galore under a beautiful Christmas tree. Our girls will not unless we step in. And because of your support, you showed our girls how much God loves them. We are SO GRATEFUL to all of our Christmas sponsors who made sure that each of our girls has a fantastic Christmas – tree, lights, gifts and a full blown Christmas dinner!
Your support shows them that God is real, He cares, and that love triumphs over evil. Thank you, and Merry Christmas!
