Compelled to do something -by Jessica Welsh
The stories that were shared about human trafficking during my brief time at ZOE absolutely broke my heart. I was overwhelmed with righteous anger and felt compelled to do something about it.
Micah 6:8 says
Living in the western world, the majority of our society, are blissfully unaware of the horrors that take place everyday.
In organizing the trivia night I wanted to not only raise much needed funds for ZOE, I wanted to raise awareness.
You can’t listen to the children’s stories and remain the same person you were before.
The work ZOE does for these children is absolutely incredible. They rescue them out of slavery and darkness, into a place of love and freedom. I am reminded of the verse from Matthew 25:40 which states, “The King will reply ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
It was an absolute honour to organise an event like this. I would do it all again in a heart beat. I pray that the people who attended the evening will be touched and inspired to continue to raise awareness and to help make our world a place without slavery.
A place filled with love, compassion and freedom.
