It seems like it has been forever since a recent blog post has been published. Prenatal appointments, preparing for a move, and transitioning jobs have filled my husband's and I's time . . . if you don't count preparing for our baby girl of course. With the fall season in full swing, I've had to bunker down and piece together marketing campaigns complete with email templates and automations after switching from WordPress to Shopify. It just seems like the checklist can't be completed or stay completed for very long!
With this post, I wanted to provide an update into the shadowy world of the human trafficking nightmare and share how God is allowing nonprofits like The Exodus Road to make an impact on lives of victims of human trafficking.
Read below for the encouraging news!
The Long Haul
We've often heard the saying "life is a marathon, not a sprint" before. It's become cliche and run down (no pun intended) and sits in the far recesses of our minds. For the victims of human trafficking however, this saying is a constant reminder. Their lives are a series of motion, nonfluid and bitter, broken up by segmented sprints. Behind the poster lies of every day life, lay the rescuers to the victims . . . ever watching and hardly sleeping, itching at the chance for a lead. Their lives are intervaled sprints, chasing down traffickers, organizing rescues, and following leads. Their ministry spans the crevices of time, running the long haul, propelled forward by prayer and faith. Your support helps saves lives.

Human Trafficking is Today’s Slavery
The numbers of the victims of human trafficking and the stories behind the numbers are why Blissful Faith is partnering with nonprofit organizations to help fund rescues and recovery programs for those entrapped in bondage. Each number is a person. You can be the one to help make a difference by purchasing a shirt (coming soon to the blog in a few weeks) or by ordering a downloadable product currently in the store, in which proceeds will go to nonprofits that seek to give a voice to the voiceless. See more on human trafficking from my previous articles below:
Blissful Faith started as a lifestyle and branched into a blog to help others hear about Jesus Christ and how they too can develop a blissful faith through knowing God. This blog’s purpose is to be an evangelical outreach to further the kingdom of Christ. Furthering the kingdom means stretching outside of the comfort zone, comprehending and working towards meeting the needs of others. Putting faith to action keeps it from becoming stagnant.
Blissful Faith Merchandise
The Blissful Faith Merchandise store helps both this blog to grow and to meet the needs of others. About 8-10% of the proceeds will go to The Exodus Road and Agape International Missions to help combat human trafficking. The funds will help assist in rescue operations, providing shelter, and recovery programs to those in bondage.
Below is a link to other nonprofit organizations currently working around the globe to help aid those in bondage in human trafficking:
The Heart Cry
Below are stories from those rescued from human trafficking.
The link above shows the detail of a boy forced to work at a night club so his family could pay back a debt. He was repeatedly assaulted when he didn’t make enough money for his trafficker.
