Hi Poiema family!

I hope you had a blessed Thanksgiving with your loved ones. It’s a wonderful time to be grateful, and I am excited to share blessings from last month!

A few of our outreach teams pivoted to serve on different weekends due to Thanksgiving. This means we were still able to deliver missing kids’ posters to over 300 locations across 13 campuses! We are incredibly grateful for the hard work and dedication of these outreach volunteers!

In November, SEVEN of the 12 children on our missing kids’ posters were recovered! One of these children includes E. Van Ingen whose recovery was directly tied to a Poiema poster seen by an anonymous source during Carrollton’s outreach!

On our Dallas Bible Church route, a DART employee shared having direct contact with T. Tracey a few weeks prior. A report like this may not seem significant, but this employee did not know T. Tracey was a missing minor. Our volunteers serving on outreach have the opportunity to build relationships with people in the community AND educate them on signs of missing minors and human trafficking. Our team passed this information on to 4TheOne private investigators to help track her recent whereabouts.

Thank you for your involvement with this ministry. We could not do this without YOU!!!
