USA EASTERN TERRITORY

Out of the Shadows

Being stuck in traffic is a real pain; trapped with nowhere to go. Thank God, it only lasts for a few minutes, even though it seems like hours!

But imagine how you’d feel if you were trapped for many years and forced to endure abuse. That’s the reality of an estimated 24.9 million people all over the world who are trapped in labor and sex trafficking.

In this issue of SAconnects, you’ll read: the first-hand account of a labor trafficking survivor, discover the stories of courageous Salvationists who help such exploited people find the road to freedom, and you’ll look back on history and see how Salvationists helped change the age of consent.

These stories are compelling and even shocking. But they’re also hopeful because they’ll connect you with ways you can be of help to trafficked people today.

You’ll also discover how you and your family can stay healthy by eating God’s foods. That’s right, “God’s Foods!”

This issue is chock full of food—for the body, mind, and spirit.

Read it, enjoy it, and share it!
