I had to hold off on posting “Make it Count” until Tuesday this week because today (1.11.11) is “National #HumanTrafficking Awareness Day. Let’s each do our part to #endslavery.” (@1nicolebromley)

Nicole Bromley is a dear friend of mine who I met at CSU a few years back. She has a story to tell about childhood sexual abuse, but through her testimony and the seed of passion planted in her heart by the Lord she is an advocate for Human Trafficking. Last summer she traveled to Africa to speak to government officials and the people about ending sex slavery. She shared her book(s) with them and during this time the Lord opened her mind and heart to see that her story is bigger than she had realized. It was the very thing that would lead her to “breaking the silence” among the human beings being sold into sex slavery. I am so grateful for Nicole’s ministry and friendship.

There are numerous ways you can learn about what is happening in America and around the World when it comes to sex slavery and human trafficking.

Check out http://www.onevoiceenterprises.com to find out more about  Nicole and her ministry. More importantly…you can be a part of the change by getting your very own “i am one voice…” vneck tshirt (http://onevoice.bigcartel.com/)

The 268 Generation group (aka Passion) have partnered with Word Made Flesh and the International Justice Missions to stop sex slavery by rescuing and helping the girls through programs for healing. At Passion, 100 college students gave $36 each to provide FREEDOM and future for 1 girl in Bolivia. Also, 150 college students gave $30 each to cover the cost of ONE undercover rescue operation that would bring 15 girls to FREEDOM. You can find out more on DoSomethingNow.com

Another national group that is working end slavery is http://www.love146.org. You can follow them at @officiallove146.

This Fall we went to Asheville, North Carolina and worked with a group of people who are passionate about rescuing and bringing awareness to the issue. Check out The Hope House in Asheville, NC and The R12 Project (based out of Biltmore Baptist Church).
