SERVE WHITTIER / APRIL 23-24 ~ Demonstrating Kindness ~ Meeting Needs ~ Impacting Lives | Transform LA | Scoop.it

"Serve Weekend is an annual event when churches from all throughout Whittier unite together to share the love of God to our neighbors and community through intentional acts of kindness. We attempt to meet the tangible needs of our neighbors, community, and city by conducting service projects and outreaches simultaneously throughout Whittier. For the past ten years, over 30 churches have participated in such projects as free oil changes for single moms, park cleanup, graffiti removal, painting, homeless care kits, recovery home remodels, blood drives, food drives, just to name a few. We encourage everyone to get out into the community and ask the Lord where He might be leading you to serve. No project is too large or too small.
    Serve Weekend is April 23-24, 2016. To conclude the weekend, you are personally invited to join us on the evening of April 24th at 5:00 PM for worship in the park!" >> CLICK the title to learn more!

Shoulder to Shoulder: Remarkable Unity in the Battle Against Modern-Day Slavery

Shoulder to Shoulder: Remarkable Unity in the Battle Against Modern-Day Slavery | Transform LA | Scoop.it

By Patti Townley-Covert

"This past month I've been in meetings with people who live life caring deeply enough about those being brutally exploited to do something about it. Together we are making headway in solving the problem of human trafficking. These Christians come from many different denominations, ethnicities, socio-economic backgrounds, political parties--and all want to contribute to a better world. Instead of focusing on differences, we focus on what unites us--a desire for a more serene scene, where everyone--not just people of privilege--can be safe." >> CLICK the title to read the entire post.

Trump and Trafficking--Enough Already! | Transform LA | Scoop.it

By Patti Townley-Covert
"What does the current Republican front-runner have to do with modern-day slavery? Everything.
    Both Trump and trafficking are a reflection of our culture. It's mainly because of moral degeneration that a candidate as vulgar, disrespectful, bigoted, and shameless as "the Donald" can garner enough support to be the top contender for the Republican nomination. It's mainly because of moral degeneration that our neighborhoods have become breeding grounds for human trafficking." >> CLICK the title to read the entire post.

Fight to End Child Sex Trafficking Comes to the Big Screen, Monday May 16th--one night only

Fight to End Child Sex Trafficking Comes to the Big Screen, Monday May 16th--one night only | Transform LA | Scoop.it

By Patti Townley-Covert

Posing as American sex tourists wanting to buy children, the Operation Underground Railroad’s (O.U.R.) jump team, led by Tim Ballard, meets with traffickers. They negotiate. Dozens of hidden cameras capture the darkness of human trafficking at a party with girls—12, 13, 14 years old—in Cartagena, Colombia; with younger girls and boys at an orphanage in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. In “The Abolitionists,” the action is real. Light comes into the darkness as seven traffickers are arrested. Hope comes to the hopeless as 57 victims are rescued. “Some people lose their faith over such evil,” said Tim Ballard, O.U.R.’s CEO. “But for me the exact opposite is true. Doors open that shouldn’t have opened. Resources come to us that shouldn’t have come. [God] wants these kids rescued more than anybody.” Ballard had to go where few dare to tread.

TRAFFICKING: Anyone Can Fight Human Trafficking

TRAFFICKING: Anyone Can Fight Human Trafficking | Transform LA | Scoop.it

By Patti Townley-Covert
"Last weekend, pinstripers came from all over the country to participate in raising funds for Every ONE Free, an anti-trafficking group in Pomona, California. Over three days, at the 2016 Grand National Roadsters Show. they raised $35,000.

These guys might not have known much about modern-day slavery, but they knew enough to want to contribute. So they flew in at their own expense and used their talents painting art objects of all kinds--a surfboard, signs, skateboards, a megaphone, a bike and on and on. Then Richard Westlake and his wife, Janice from Westlake Auction Services auctioned off the items to the highest bidder. Not only did the audience win pieces from notable pinstripers, they put their money." >> CLICK the title to read the entire post.

CLICK HERE to listen: http://neighborhoodinitiative.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/10/KKLA-Neighborhood-initiative.mp3

Transform LA's insight:

ABOUT Neighborhood Initiative:

    In January of 2001, some of the pastors from the west valley of Los Angeles began gathering to pray for our city and the churches that make up the whole church in our valley. It was our commitment from the beginning to pray, to develop relationships with one another, and to wait on the Lord to show us what He had in mind for us to do.

    The Lord made it apparent that He was leading us to minister together in the neighborhoods where those in our churches live. This ministry has become known as Neighborhood Initiative.

    Resources are available for pastors and leaders interested in implementing their own neighborhood initiative in their cities. Check out our Neighboring Resources to get started! There is also a leaders and participants guide available for pastors who want to use these materials in their own churches. Visit Resources/Neighboring Resources.
