Fighting for the Children

Yesterday there was a campaign against the sexual exploitation of children and adolescents here in the city of Belo Horizonte.  This was located at the main square downtown (which is one of the busiest spots in the city) and was sponsored by the Third Sector Evangelical Network.  Felipe had the privilege to particpate and take photos .
The event went very well as there were several poltical parties and organizations represented and particpating in the cause.  Flowers were given to the pedestrians passing by, various dances and dramas were presented, and several speeches were made ​​by people who are currently fighting against this.  At the end of the manisfestation there was a walk down the main street of Belo Horizonte ending at the city bus station. 

Thanks to all who participated in this cause and thanks most of all to the Third Sector Evangelical Network for their initiative to raise awareness in this sensetive area of sexual exploitation of children and adolescents.

Unfortunately, the sexual exploitation of children and adolescents is happening here in Brazil and all around the world. This is a harsh reality... Our prayer is that God protects our children and adolescents and that we as followers of Jesus may rise up as servants to fight on their behalf.

Here are some of my friends who are Youth With A Mission (YWAM) missionaries. They were representing YWAM at the event!
