UnBound Night

At UnBound, we are committed to combatting slavery and igniting hope. One of the ways we do this is by bringing people together to share what we’ve learned about ending human trafficking. Next Friday, November 15th, we are gathering together to do just that. You’re invited to join us for our Community Collaboration Forum, featuring speaker Dr. Tomi Glover, Executive Director of TraffickStop and author of the book, Compelled. UnBound Night will also feature a panel including professionals from social work and education.

UnBound Night is Friday, November 15th from 7 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. in the Underground (located in the main office building) at Antioch Community Church, 505 N. 20th St, Waco 76707. Contact UnBound with any questions.

Your No Is Her Hope – 8,000 Signatures!

Thank you to everyone for helping make the Your No Is Her Hope petition a huge success! Read the letter below from UnBound’s National Director, Susan Peters:

Wow! Thank you, Church, for helping spread the word about the Your No Is Her Hope petition. Since we launched the petition at World Mandate, more than 8,000 people have signed.

We are constantly amazed at what God is doing in and through UnBound, and are humbled to be a part of it. It was amazing to see thousands of people respond and take up the cause at World Mandate, and we know He has something big planned as we all continue to raise awareness.

Next, we will take the petition to Congressman Bill Flores (R-TX 17th District) to let him know this is something people in his district and throughout the United States care about. Please pray this will be the start of some important conversations that will move us forward in the fight against sex trafficking.

As our initial push is over, it is imperative for each of us to continue carrying this understanding of the connection between sex trafficking and pornography. People need to know that when we choose pornography, we choose to allow and encourage the abuse of women and children exploited through the pornographic industry. And as long as we stay silent and allow pornography to run wild, we keep the primary gateway to sex trafficking open.

The online petition is still available, and we encourage you to keep asking people to sign. May this be something we talk about as believers – holding each other accountable, praying for breakthrough and believing that we serve a God who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think.

In His grace,

Susan Peters
National Director
UnBound

World Mandate – Session Two Recap

This morning at World Mandate, Antioch senior pastor Jimmy Seibert shared powerfully, inviting us to say “no” and step into the inheritance and freedom that is ours in Jesus.

“When we say no to sexual immorality and specifically pornography, we begin the process of ending human trafficking.” – Jimmy Seibert

It’s time to do something now.

1. Sign – urge our government to tighten restrictions on pornography. Add your name to the petition.

2. Share – Everyone needs to know the connection between pornography and human trafficking. Help get the word out and share this video with your friends and followers on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram: http://antio.ch/herhope

3. Say No – If you struggle with pornography, it’s time to get out.

  • Get real. Confess everything to someone you trust. Create a game plan for freedom.
  • Get accountable. Talk about when it started, why you do it, what needs to change.
  • Get community. Join a small group of others fighting the same struggle.
  • Get filters. Install online accountability. (x3watch.com and covenanteyes.com)
