Focus on faith tradition Thomas Grant Pastor outreach director for NC family join us once a month is pastor Graham shine some light on the intersection between our Christian faith and engaging our culture for joining us for this week. Special focus on the family policy matters.

Today I'm excited to have as my guest a beautiful couple from Eastern North Carolina were answering God's call to love and serve an unusual but desperately needed ministry person in a Smith or cofounders restore one of ministry that seeks to open shelters that offer faith-based residential recovery programs free of cost to American boys who are survivors of domestic minor sex trafficking. Chris and Emma Smith.

Welcome to the family policy matters. It's great to have you on the show yet. Thank you so much for have. I know that at least I think I know that undertaking this kind of ministry must be rooted in a strong relationship with God. Can you tell us about your own stories and life experiences, particularly your faith. I'm sure that had a major role in preparing the soil of your heart open to this mission. When God called you yet, have her go all the way back about 29 now without a problem 10 years ago. We are 19 in college we answered the call to be full-time youth pastor's local church here in Greenwood, North Carolina, and the pastor pretty much as came up to it like a leave me you have the youth pastors and leaders, like okay you graduated college and were not really sure, but I was just following after God leading company in the uncharted water. What we found along every story that we walked into that Jesus has for us that even though we don't feel qualified called P Ali.think called unqualified along the journey and you know it a go to show for both of us along our journey has always call her thing that made it out of our comfort and were uncomfortable and yeah I now for one on the street year being in college day for one year has for us not for you extracting here in America. Chris I think that's wonderful. What was the catalyst to under undertake a ministry. The first of its kind in the nation. I might add to this particular often overlooked aspect of the terrible, terrible problem of human trafficking was the catalyst so we began in 189 we believe our very sexual trafficking population actually learn working for a couple and are looking to bully with so incredibly wake nothing in the beginning I think for all of us. When Jesus called into something you get the vision of other people. Yeah Alex, I totally take this all that very rarely the case are solid, like you know how I'm even know human trafficking is analyte one in my mind to help address this, man, and that's when Jesus, said hey Chris, the average fire of a child in America is a middle-class and Caucasian to have a family you know we need just like me and you pastor Thomas to step up not okay. Whether you're a Christian or not. This is not how God created exactly one that's that's well said Chris. So, since saying yes to this call to begin this outreach. I'm going to just say that I imagine, life is not been very smooth sailing. God really calls us to easy projects and that something you alluded to a few moments ago. What sort of bumps in the road. Have you encountered in where have you drawn the motivation to just continue to persevere in the face of the challenges I have not out here at building actually I think that pushback on the work we are dealing and we really did not think people incredibly Enchanting Hop That They Really Been on an Experience We Were Trying to Keep up with the Lord Build and Another Year Later Getting Right Incredibly Dating Really Help the Board That Got Me Carried Me to Spend Anywhere Affected the Lord to Be Rebuilt and Maybe Restored and We Had Time to Tell Me Any People from across the Nation.

What Kind of Care You Currently Offer and How Will Anger House to That yet Restore One Universal One We Address the Issue of Boys until about 2014 Start Talking about That Washing the Efforts Towards Building a Drought That We Do Is That You Think of Human Trafficking Thing That Usually Only Happens to Girls so One of the Biggest Thing That We Do Excellent Right Now Is Awareness and Education Is Very Important That Other Nations like Girls or Just Have Educational Programs or Awareness Programs Is Very Important to Train the Public and Bring Awareness to the Public That Is Not Happening and If It Is Happening. The Mail Does Not Just Happen Are Being Sold across the World. Yet on the Streets of America. It Is Our Duty to Bring Awareness to the Issue Accurately and We Train and Educate Many Different People.
