Bikers Rally in York Pa.

We are so excited as we have just completed our first large fund raiser for our home Oasis of Hope. Tracy Powell a team member of Oasis put together a great bike run in York, Pa. We had a total of 20 bikes and around 45 people who came out to support the cause of Human trafficking in America.. We had our Ass. U.S. Attorney Gordon Zubrod speak for us on what is happening in our area. He was very quick to note that Harrisburg Pa. is one of the hottest spots in America right now for Human Trafficking. We also learned how the pimps are controlling these victims. We also had Nancy Winston of Shared Hope International come and share how important it is to raise up these homes in America to help the minor girls caught up in the sex slave industry. She noted that they are using girls younger and younger and the need is great! We ended the day with a silent auction and picnic which everyone enjoyed. We raised a total of $2200.00 for our home. It was a great day and the Lord blessed us with a beautiful fall day...God is faithful all the time....

Debbie knows first hand the effects of sex trafficking as she has ministered to 3 young girls in her own home that had been sold into sex slavery. Her heart is to show them the love of Jesus and the restoring power that comes through Him. Rescue is no rescue at all if there is no restoration and healing in these young girls lives. When Debbie began researching and finding out that there are only a hand full of faith based homes in the United States her heart broke.... Most of these girls are treated as criminals not victims... and a lot of the girls end up in juvenile delinquent homes and get lost in the system never really finding true healing. Many run away and find themselves back on the streets. It is Debbie's hope and prayer to build a home that will not only give them a safe haven but, also teach them and mentor them into becoming the women of God that He intended them to be...
