Beza Threads

Posted by: | Comments (1)

This weekend we hosted Beza Threads, a ministry designed to provide an avenue of hope to children in Ethiopia who work as sex slaves. It is estimated at there are 8.4 million child slaves in the world, with 1.8 million children robbed of their childhoods through sex slavery. Girls in Ethopia, as young as 5 years old, are sold 4-10 times per day for as little as $1.

Beza (“redemption”) Threads’ mission is to provide additional funding to WinSouls, an Ethiopian ministry commited to rescuing girls from sex slavery. WinSouls teaches the former child slaves and former sex slaves how to make scarves to provide funding for their education. WinSouls has a three year program theat educates, counsels, and rebuilds self worth into these young people. God is using Josiah and Megan Carter and many volunteers like them to change the world one life at a time. I want to encourage you to visit www.BezaThreads.org to learn more about this ministry. Perhaps you would even consider purchasing a scarf online and sharing in this great work of mercy and compassion.
