In the summer of 2017 our family hit the road and is currently traveling the country to raise awareness about social injustice and mobilize individuals and communities to bring hope to their neighbors in tangible ways. Over a two year period we’ll be traveling to roughly 25 cities, spending approximately 4 weeks in each city.
What will our work include?
Change starts one person at a time, one voice at a time. Through Love2Hope, will be using our gifts of speaking and education to bring more awareness to the issues contributing to the modern day slave industry and related social injustices. Through our advocacy, we will be equipping churches and other communities to intentionally live out God’s calling to love our neighbors as ourselves.
We’ve been inspired by Proverbs 31:8 that says “Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly, defend the rights of the poor and needy.”
Our family was forever changed when we became educated on the issue of human trafficking, even right here in the United States. By continuing to bring awareness others, it’s our prayer that more hearts would be stirred like ours were.
As we travel throughout the United States, we will partner with local community non-profits that have their “boots on the ground” and are working to combat social injustice issues. Human trafficking stems from many underlying issues including homelessness, the foster system, poverty, pornography and more. By helping our audiences identify their “holy discontent” or their unique passions we can connect them with local organizations that are bringing about hope in various ways.
The Love2Hope tour is an opportunity for our family to pursue a lifestyle that recognizes others’ needs before our own. As we simplify our lives, we can focus less on our personal comforts and more on the opportunities to share hope with the broken and lost around us.
