Our Justice ACTS team was invited to be the guest speakers at the “Women in Action Awareness Campaign on Human Trafficking” of the Universal Church of the Kingdom of God in Cape Town. This meant for me to jump head-on into performing in a drama and to be the main speaker at this 2-hour event, where about 1500 people from all over the Western Cape attended. This was the largest crowd I had ever addressed, but God gave me such a peace that I was not even nervous.
Talking about Human Trafficking can be a heavy thing, but seeing this auditorium full of women who are passionate to bring about change, really gave me hope that a movement against this crime is slowly arising. The denominational group “Women in Action” is made up of pastors’ wives and I have rarely seen churches that empower women like that!
Since we are in Africa, the program started over an hour late – which led some ladies to initiate a spontaneous dance parade in front of the stage… – quite entertaining! After the event, all of our team was amazed at God’s favor on our relatively small organization Justice ACTS, as the organizers told us that they will donate all proceeds from the sale of “freedom bracelets” to us…. Wow!
