What are some needs that need to be met in your community?

Project 31 Day 22
Last Friday I went to a JJ Heller benefit concert. JJ and her husband Dave are amazing. Their music is so beautiful and inspirational. Ree Boado opened for them and she is wonderful too! I haven't felt so inspired in a long time. I walked away from their concert feeling like I had just had coffee with a good friend, one who encouraged me and challenged my faith. I cannot even describe the exhilaration I felt after this concert.

All this to say, this was a benefit concert to raise money for a ministry called Streetlight Phoenix a ministry working to eradicate child sex slavery.

Here are some facts on child sex slavery:

On the Streetlight Phoenix website they have numerous ways to get involved. From committing to donate monthly, volunteering, or hosting a screening of there documentary film Branded Streetlight Phoenix is empowering us to raise awareness in our community.

This is a need I see in my community.
By simply donating $13 a month you can be a modern abolitionist. Sex trafficking isn't just happening in Phoenix it's happening all over the country. Don't be afraid to get involved with ministry in your city. You might think that you're just one person and you can't really help anyone but God wants to use you in mighty ways. Make yourself available. Don't let your fears hold you back!
