Illuminate's first annual 'Freedom Sunday' was a great success last week! God answered our prayers by bringing a total of 42 folks! The gathering place was packed with people eager to learn the truth about human trafficking, and how it effects us locally. Each person had a chance to sign a petition, which will be send to our local government leaders. Hopefully, this will motivate them to use their power to stop this crime from going viral in our own backyard. The evening opened with prayer and worship songs. Then recently retired General Mike Dornbush shared some interesting insights on this issue from a global perspective. We were fortunate to benefit from his wealth of experience. After a brief coffee/snack break, Ariane gave an eye opening presentation on 'human trafficking', based on her own personal and horrible experiences. It's a safe assumption that everyone in the room was moved by Ariane's story in some way. We look forward to seeing how God will continue to use Illuminate to raise awareness about this issue.
