Johanna’s Story (Founder)
Many people ask me what made me want to start a ministry for victims of human trafficking. It started with a prayer. In late 2015 I prayed “God break my heart for what breaks yours.” That’s when He began to open my eyes to the atrocities of human trafficking. It seemed too big of an evil to do anything about. I began to understand that prayer, working with others in the community, and trusting God was the answer. I began to pray for the people caught in human trafficking. I began to pray Psalm 91:4. I began to pray they would be rescued, that God would protect them, that He would heal their wounds and restore their lives. I believe God is who He says He is. A defender of the weak. A father to the fatherless. I believe He rescues, restores, and redeems. I believe when we pray, He listens. I believe He IS with these precious ones I pray for. I believe they are covered in His Feathers.
