April of 2007 is when I first heard of this evil called human trafficking. As I was told of the sale, sexual exploitation and murder of little girls in Mexico, God began to break my heart. Now pregnant with a vision and passion from God I began to study and research this bondage and attack in the USA. It has become my life’s message to expose sexual slavery also known as modern day slavery in America. America, the land of the free and opportunity. America, the land of the American Dream. America, where all men are created equal and entitled to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
In 2008 I began to share with my staff, peers, and Senior Pastor to educate and inspire them to fight this battle with me. In 2009 I shared the vision God had given me for Without Permission to the 100 women of Refresh Women’s Ministry at Calvary Temple Worship Center. That night, two women on the Refresh leadership team approached me to tell me their encounters with trafficking a decade earlier in Modesto. Also, mentor and friend, Lisa Santagate confided in me how that night God was pulling her to do something about this fight as well!
It was the witness needed from the Lord that it was time to go public and go hard to reveal, recruit and mobilize an army. To find people who are willing to go to the darkest place in our American landscape called human trafficking and sex slavery.
As the vision and mission of Without Permission comes together and produces life giving results, the team is ever so grateful to the Lord, community and church for the opportunity to do something that changes people, families, communities, and souls.
Without Permission exists to remind America that the biblical principles that made her great at her inception are the only traits that will save her from this self destruction and slavery called human trafficking.
“Let Justice roll like a river, righteousness like a never ending stream.” (Amos 5:24)
