Poiema Foundation - Education and Public Awareness of Human Trafficking

January Monthly Outreach

First Baptist Frisco Minor Sex Trafficking Outreach Training.

I have exciting news to share with you! We started 2023 with a BANG!

In January alone, 13 campuses had volunteers cover 23 different routes.  More campuses and routes were covered in January than any month last year! What an encouraging way to begin the fight against human trafficking in 2023! Thank you for serving!

  • It brings me joy to share the following updates from the outreach teams:
    I will begin sharing monthly how many kids on our posters are no longer listed as missing. For the month of January, TEN of the nineteen kids from this month’s posters were located!!! We will continue to lift each of these kids up in prayer, as we know this is one of the most important things we can do.
  • Our newest outreach campus, Frisco First Baptist, held their first outreach! We are thrilled about this partnership and happy to welcome their team to the Poiema family.
  • Two of our amazing Poiema leaders, Steve and Kristi Glass, launched a Truck Stop Ministry! Every Thursday night, at a local truck stop, a team of men present posters of missing kids and the book of John to truckers. Poiema is grateful to have BOLD ministries partnering with us. Though this initiative is new, there are already many success stories of men getting involved to help find missing kids!

I would like to offer a challenge to our Poiema family.

  • If you have not served on one of our Saturday Outreaches, please give it a try! There are many dates and locations to choose from.
  • If you already serve on Outreach, consider inviting a friend to serve with you. This may be their first opportunity to learn about human trafficking and by going on outreach, they will see first-hand what is happening in their community.
