On Friday, Melodie led a team of women from APC to travel to Belgium for the next six days. The purpose for the trip is to connect with April Foster and the BREAKING CHAINS NETWORK and learn more about their ministry to rescue women who are caught in human trafficking.
Allison Park Church has been actively involved in helping to renovate a SAFE HOUSE which is close to the 'red light' district in Belguim. We are investing in a building that eventually will become a training and transition home for these women to be discipled and receive the training and support that they need to take steps into a lasting and healthy life.
Pray for Melodie on Tuesday. She has a unique opportunity to be one of the speakers at a dinner for the International Women's Day. There will be organizations there both christian and secular who are committed to the cause of ending human trafficking. What an honor that she gets to present a talk during this important dinner.
They return next Thursday - so you can pray for my kids too - they have to put up with me as 'Mr. Mom' for a week. Fortunuately, my daughter Alissa is home for spring break, so she can help us guys survive.
Thanks for your prayers.
