“For it is the God who said, ‘Let light shine out of darkness,’ who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.”
— 2 Corinthians 4:6
It is estimated that one in four human trafficking victims in the United States travel to or through the city of Houston. Interstate 10, which passes through Houston, has been identified by the FBI as the number-one corridor for trafficking in the country. CBF field personnel Butch and Nell Green bring community awareness to this atrocity by conducting “red light tours,” taking groups on a tour showing where and how trafficking is taking place. Nell teaches churches and groups about Internet safety, global trafficking, and fair trade practices. Ask God to use these education tools to increase the responsiveness of churches, groups, and individuals to modern-day slavery. Pray that, as God works in individuals and through partner organizations, slavery in Houston will be eradicated once and for all.
