Since October, the AP youth have been giving weekly to the End It Movement.
“END IT is a Coalition of the leading organizations in the world in the fight for FREEDOM. Each of our amazing Coalition Partners are doing the work, on the ground, everyday, to bring AWARENESS, PREVENTION, RESCUE, and RESTORATION.” – www.enditmovement.com
Since October, the youth have raised over $280 and I announced this past week at youth that it is now our goal to raise $500 by the time we leave for the summer. Well, as I announced that, we had the largest offering since October and now we have hit $340. We are over halfway there, and the goal seems TINY!
Today I also received a note from a childhood friend of mine who has been a missionary in France for the past 4 years. I had no idea, but she’s back in the USA to raise money to go back to France for her next term and she asked if she could come speak to the youth in January. You’ll never believe what her ministry has become — it started off as ministering to international college students, but now she’s very involved in the anti-trafficking world in France (as well as other things). She’s working to end slavery just like we are, and she’s coming to speak to the youth on January 29th!
The timing couldn’t be better — we’re picking up speed to really surpass our $500 goal and now I’m thinking we need to raise it to at least $750!
