ROR & Sex Trafficking

I know very little – basically nothing – about the sex-trafficking industry and the results of its existence. I am not on the front lines and have no clue what really goes on. I’ve heard stories, read news articles, but have never seen the atrocities face-to-face.

That being said, I know it happens all around us. Shockingly close to us. It’s probably taken place alongside of us as we commute through busy DC highways. Whether or not you know anything about it, or feel like you should, there are ways you can get involved and help.

A friend of mine named Karly founded an outreach called Redemption of Rahab. Karly and her team visit strip clubs in the area and love and minister to the girls working. They often bring them food, gifts, and the message of hope in a place where there doesn’t appear to be any. Through her, I’ve learned these clubs (especially the lower-end clubs) are often a hub for sex-trafficking and other industry crimes…in DC…and all around us.

Karly and the team visit the same club throughout each month and have built a lot of great relationships with the girls, managers, and bouncers. God has paved the way for the team.

There are a lot of easy ways to get involved, from baking to writing letters to providing used devotionals and books. If this is something you’re interested in, please follow the link.

There is also an interest meeting to hear about the ministry, meet the team, and get involved on March 15 at 730pm. If interested, feel free to contact me at

I typically have a terrible poker face if I’m annoyed with someone. In fact, I just have one of those faces where it looks like I’m always annoyed even though I’m not. There’s even a term for it. The Christian version would be “b***** resting face”.

1. I just found out yogurt was good.

I have avoided yogurt my entire life because I was told countless times that it was alive and/or curdled milk. Seeing as to how I’ve had bad experiences with expired milk, I avoided yogurt at all cost. It wasn’t until I was left with the choice to eat yogurt or not eat at all, that I discovered how good it was. Now I buy it Continue reading
