Human Traffic Watch

Reader feedback: Is your church involved in the fight against human trafficking?

In Awareness, Human Trafficking on August 19, 2012 at 12:33 pm

Now online, “A mission of hands and feet,” a report from my recent trip to Nepal with four members of theHighland Church of Christ in Abilene, Texas. Two of them work for Eternal Threads, an Abilene-based nonprofit that sells fair-trade items crafted by women in a dozen countries.

In Nepal, Eternal Threads partners with a Nepali-operated nonprofit, Kingdom Investments Nepal, that fights the scourge of human trafficking — young girls lured from their villages, taken across the border into India, and sold into lives of slavery in brothels.

You’ll also find a gallery with photos not included in our print edition.

Though I’ve traveled internationally for The Christian Chronicle for a decade, the journey to Nepal was unique.

I’m used to covering gospel campaigns, medical mission trips and dedication ceremonies for new schools and clinics. I’ve shot photos in a mountain village in Ecuador, a crowded home Bible study in India and a thatch-roof church building in Sudan.
