AU Trafficking Summit — Day 3

Annie Lobért spoke for vespers tonight, telling her story of trafficking, prostitution, drugs and the restoring love of Jesus. Annie was one of the women profiled in the film Nefarious, which was shown on Day 2 (click here for a review of Day 1).

One statement that especially stood out to me related to Annie’s spiritual path after encountering Jesus at her darkest hour–she struggled to return to church because her clients had included pastors, priests and rabbis. In light of these experiences, Annie’s description of the woman who washed Jesus’ feet with perfume was especially moving (Luke 7:36-50).

jesusAfter going through a significant recovery process, Annie began reaching out to women and girls still held in invisible chains by pimps and traffickers. This work grew into a ministry called Hookers for Jesus.

For those who were not able to attend or watch Annie’s presentation online, I highly recommend that you view her condensed story at I am Second. Also, learn more by viewing her project, Saved on the Strip.

The 2013 Summit on Social Consciousness has a full schedule tomorrow/Saturday.
