LCMS, LIRS Work to End Human Trafficking

Published On: Donate

human-trafficking-300x242It’s always a thrill for me to share the thoughts of our partners, so when I read Jeni Miller’s blog post on human trafficking for Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod (LCMS), I knew I wanted to rebroadcast it to the world.

In her piece for The Reporter, she writes: “In an effort to put an end to human trafficking, the LCMS is teaming up with Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service (LIRS), Baltimore, to provide educational programs, Bible studies and opportunities for LCMS congregations and individuals to take prayerful action against this growing problem.”

She also quotes Rev. Bart Day, Executive Director of the LCMS Office of National Mission, as saying:

Human trafficking is an attack on human life — life created by God for a holy purpose — so we must be concerned about and become engaged in ending this practice that takes the most vulnerable and sells them as a commodity for unholy purposes.
