Abused Teens…what they suffer

Teen FenceAs Christians who profess the power of His love that should look beyond our fault and sees the real need, we must learn to regard homeless and sexually trafficked youth less in the light of what they do, or omit to do, and more in the light of what they suffer.
Their suffering is a part of a greater purpose, and by our “correct” and “right” response to their suffering, it becomes than becomes than what really distinguishes us as “real” and “genuine” Christians who really care.
So this is our challenge to you……………….let us regard these young people more in the light of what they suffer………………rather in the light of what they do.

Please feel free to comment on this issue…would love to hear from you!

  1. I’ve learned through years of crisis counseling that sometimes their are issues we are not aware of that the person wrestled with. If they feel safe, let them vent. Sometimes the art of listening by showing compassion is more powerful than giving advice. Just let them know you care. Many today deal with broken heart syndrome. Much of it has become s heart issue.

  2. Excellent article. Keep writing such kind
    of info on your page. Im really impressed by it.
    Hi there, You’ve performed an excellent job. I will definitely
    digg it and personally suggest to my friends.
    I am sure they’ll be benefited from this site.

  3. I’m writing you because we have a common goal and concern for trafficked teens!
    In the 50 years I have worked with homeless and trafficked youth in Canada and America, both as a probation officer, social worker and pastoral counselor, I have learned to regard these teens not in the light of what they do, or omit to do, but more in the light of what they suffer.
    For over 4 years I have been working on the purchase of a 165 acre ranch.
    We have negotiated this long and the price has now reached its lowest offer, $3 million. It will comfortably house, clothe and feed up to 100 of these teens!
    Pictures are seen on our website http://www.arizonadreamcenter.org
    These teens suffering is a part of a greater purpose, and our “correct” response of people who claim to care really distinguishes us as to who we really are!
    Globally, sex trafficking has become a 120 billion $ per year industry.
    The first step in restoring their dignity is to give them a safe place to live.
    Your tax deductible donation is needed now if we are to provide this huge facility of care. If you can’t help financially, will you at least SHARE this page with others or start a GoFundMe account for us?
    We thank you and so does Rico, Ronnie, Mike, Josh, Eddie, Rudy, Bill, Marc, George, Juan, Annie, Victoria, Sandy and so many more!!!!!!!!
