Devotions for Human Trafficking Awareness Day

Thu, 02/02/2017 - 08:08

A delegation from the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) visited Thailand in late 2016 to look at human trafficking in a context different from the ones we understand here in the United States. Our delegation met with representatives of church organizations, civil society, and governments. We met with those working to stop trafficking before it starts and those responding to persons who have been trafficked. The following are reflections from our delegation.  We invite you to join us in devotion to God and prayer that human trafficking will become a sin of the past. Download our devotional, written for Human Trafficking Awareness Day 2017, but appropriate for any event raising awareness of the exploitation of human beings, below.
