Hey IJM!

Our February Action Meeting was really cool, exciting things happening in Costa Rica through Love & Scissors and testimony of South African spotter coming to Christ and now devoting his life to protecting girls to prevent them from entering the sex trade. Here are some events to keep on your radar:

  1. THIS SATURDAY, February 18th at Bean There Coffeehouse in downtown Norfolk, 5:30-8:00pm Love & Scissors is putting on a benefit show before these two hair stylists go back to Costa Rica and teach girls coming out of prostitution how to cut hair and make a living that doesn’t involve selling their bodies. For more information about Love & Scissors, check out their website: http://www.loveandscissors.com/. For more information on the event, check it out on FB: https://www.facebook.com/#!/events/247106598701752/

 

 

 

2.   NEXT SUNDAY, February 26th at New Covenant Church in Hampton from 6:30-8:00pm there will be a screening of “Sex & Money”. Trailer here: http://sexandmoneyfilm.com/.

Hey All!

Awesome meeting yesterday! So great to see all of you who were able to come out. I’ve attached the minutes and the PowerPoint to keep you up to date and have a handy reference. November Action Meeting PPT

 We have two important dates coming up:

  • December 1st: World Aids Day
  • December 10th: International Human Rights Day 

We need to bring the realities of these two issues to the Regent campus and surrounding Hampton Roads area so whether you have been coming or would like to plug in for one/both of these events, we are going to have an Events Action Team meeting to brainstorm ideas on Thursday, November 9th from 12-1pm on the 2nd floor of the Ordinary. Hope to see you there !

Hello IJM!

 I have 3 worthwhile events to inform you about. I’d love for each of you to get involved with any of them that interests you, or not (stretch yourself), and that your schedule allows for, or not (stretch yourself). Justice really should be our lifestyle, not limited to given event…but I digress, ok, here we go in chronological order:

 

THIS FRIDAY, October 28th. New Life Providence (1224 Thompkins Lane, Virginia Beach, VA 23464. 7:00pm:

Screening of “58: Fast-forward the End of Poverty: WE HAVE EVERYTHING WE NEED. WILL WE DO EVERYTHING IT TAKES?”

58: is the inspiring true story of the global Church in action. Witness bravery and determined faith in a journey from the slums of Kenya to the streets of New York. Confront the brutality of extreme poverty and meet those who live out the True Fast of Isaiah 58 and create stunning new possibilities for the future.Travel from the sun-scorched plains of rural Ethiopia to British shopping centers, from Brazilian ganglands and the enslaving quarries of India to western churches, businesses and conferences.

58: invites audiences to discover the incredible work of God through His people in our hurting world. Meet ordinary people, hear their stories, and see their struggles and their victories as 58: shows the relentlessly loving God at work through His Church bringing hope to the darkest challenges of our day. Experience eye-opening reasons to lift our expectations of the future. Check out the trailer:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OzVLzVe4h8g

 

*Be the solution: If you would like to volunteer for this event and personally insert yourself in this event, let me know what works for you:

  • Promo: THIS WEEK! If you want flyers…let me know
  • Set up: 5:30pm
  • Greeters: 5:30pm
  • Coffee Servers: 5:30pm & 8:30pm (before and after event. You may choose to do before OR after).
  • Tear down: 9:00pm

 

Tuesday, November 1st. Library Plaza.11:00am-3:00pm:

Slavery Demonstration.

Picture with me… in the middle of the Plaza will be an IJM table with information about trafficking, the IJM bracelets to sell, and jars labeled with numbers. The numbers correspond to victims tied to trees and lamp posts around the plaza, each with a sign designating their price of freedom and the significance of that number (ie: $3: the average cost to rent a girl for an hour/ $27: There are 27 million documented slaves in the world today) etc. People will give money into whatever jar they choose and if their donation buys the price of someone’s freedom, they are given an IJM bracelet and get to free the “slave”…only for the “slave” to be sold again.

 

*Be the solution: There’s a couple ways to get involved

  • Get the word out!
  • Set up help (11:00am)
  • Volunteer to be a slave for ½ hour-1 hour between the time of 11:30am-3:00pm (you tell me when works for you)
  • Help co-host the IJM table for ½ hour-1 hour between the time of 11:30am-3:00pm (you tell me when works for you)
  • Tear down help (3:00pm)

 

Friday, November 4th. Summit Christian Academy (4209 Big Bethel Road, Yorktown, Virginia 23693). 6:30pm.

Justice Rally.

Night of prayer and worship lead by Livingstone House of Prayer. Fashion for sale by “Elegantees”.

Check it out: Livingstone House of Prayer: http://lhop.us/

                   “Elegantees”: http://www.elegantees.com/

 

*Be the solution: If you would like to help sell Elegantees at the event, let me know. The biggest thing you can do is come. Engage. Hear the Lord’s heart. Obey what He tells you. Intercede for the victims (both traffickers and trafficked persons alike).

 

Thanks for reading! Look forward to hearing from you soon !
