Human Trafficking Around the Super Bowl
A few years ago, I got involved with the Dayton Task Force of Love146. Love146 is committed to the end of human slavery, and our Dayton Task Force is focused on creating awareness and taking ACTION to help end this tragedy in our world. Did you know that there are 27 MILLION people in slavery around the world today? There are slaves here in the U.S. and many slaves around the world are transported through or abducted in the United States.
One of the facts I learned a while back is how Traffickers use the chaos in the respective host city of the Super Bowl to move victims through. I love the Super Bowl, and I’m excited about the upcoming Harbowl. But I will be praying for and thinking about the women and children who’s lives are taking a tragic turn this weekend. This kind of thing HAS to stop!!
Last year, when the Super Bowl was in Indianapolis, Theresa Flores and many others combated this problem. Sadly, I wasn’t able to help that time, but several members of our Dayton Task Force were there to help with the S.O.A.P. campaign. Here’s an article regarding last year’s event: http://www.wishtv.com/dpp/news/local/marion_county/human-trafficking-survivor-in-indianapolis-before-super-bowl.
This year, when you watch the Super Bowl, please take a moment to pray for the victims. I look forward to the day when this is no longer a problem.

I am a self-taught web developer which has flourished into a good career, and today my focus is mostly on online marketing, project management, social media, HTML5, CSS3, and OOP PHP. I'm always reading a variety of things that will continue to feed my passions: online marketing, relationships, church leadership, and my own walk with Christ.
I've found the key to happiness (and survival) for me is to be well organized and structured so that I can do a 'good job' at everything. But one of these days I'm going to be able to withdraw from everything else and just spend my days w/ God, Gaby, family and friends.
