Anti-trafficking ministry says Christ can restore

troubled teenWomen and girls rescued from trafficking through Christ tend to walk away from the life permanently. 

She is Safe is an organization working internationally to free women and children from a life that often claims their lives.

Michelle Rickett leads the organization. While working on the mission field in Africa,  she observed many girls were kept at home to work, for marriage, or to sell. She formed She is Safe to help them and says anyone involved in trafficking can be reached.

“No one is beyond the reach of God, whether it's a trafficker, or a madam who's holding slaves, or a perpetrator on the street,” she told OneNewsNow. “Everyone is someone that we ought to be praying for, someone that we ought to be reaching.”

Rickett points to the track record of the two approaches.

“Someone who's been trafficked for many years will find it very difficult to imagine themselves having a life of freedom unless they gain that freedom through Christ,” she said. “Recidivism in the U.S. for restorative care and overseas is very high in programs that do not address the spiritual need for Christ.”

Those in the secular programs have a higher rate of recidivism.

The goal of She is Safe is to see these women rescued through Christ, connected with a church, mentored by members, and kept under the cover of prayer.

July 30 is “World Day Against Human Trafficking” and Rickett asks people to take time Sunday to pray for victims overseas and in America.
