We are not always victims of circumstance. The place that we find ourselves is sometimes a consequence of the choices we’ve made. There are also some circumstances that we are born into and unavoidable. Poverty, Sexual Abuse, Lack of Education, Broken Families, Betrayal and Pain. The tools here are to help you avoid the dangerous traps that we fall into. You will learn ways to get up even if you have fallen hard. Remember that in every circumstance, regardless of our sin, God is with us. We need to trust that God is in control.
I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content. I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need. I can do all things through him who strengthens me. Phil 4:11b-13
In the Philippines there have been 60,000 confirmed HIV cases beginning in 1984 with the first case of HIV infection. Of the total, more than 30,000 are from the 25-34 year age group while 17,000 were youth age 15-24. Between 1984 and 2012 the number of new HIV cases totaled approximately 10,000 in that 28 year span. Over the last six years from 2013 through 2018 there have been nearly 50,000 total diagnosed cases in the Philippines. The prevailing mode of transmission of HIV among Filipinos continues to be males who have sex with males (MSM). Please join us in educating others about the challenge of HIV and our youth.
We must end sex trafficking in the Philippines. Almost half a million people are involved in prostitution and 100,000 of them are children. They become sex slaves in their own country to sell their flesh to complete strangers. Strangers, who would go as far as abusing innocent girls sexually just to satisfy the desires of their flesh. An estimated 30,000 victims of sex trafficking die each year from abuse, disease, torture, and neglect. Victims have to fight the battle brought by different psychological effects that include clinical depression, personality and dissociative disorders, Post?Traumatic Stress Syndrome, and Complex Post?Traumatic Stress Syndrome. Help True Love Waits end sex trafficking and minister to those who have been abused.
