I'm 48 yrs old and basically the first half of my life I did waste and I am now involved i the fight to end Human Trafficking because I've always had a passion for the vulnerable people of our society. I have an opportunity ahead of me to further my education from the Trafficking Education Network, the deadline for applying is Sunday and classes start January 29th. I am scared to death!!! that I won't be accepted because I don't really have the experience since I just started my journey with human trafficking. I just finished college with a Bachelors in Criminal Justice and my school loans are $50,000 the class is $2,000 but if this class is what God wants me to do then I am trusting him to supply the provision to do so. Scholarships are offered for the class, which I am trusting God for. The whole reason I wasted the first half of my life was fear; fear of rejection, fear of failure, fear, fear, fear. I know God's word says that He did not give me a spirit of fear but of a sound mind, and I do try to hang onto that promise but I still struggle. Please pray for me that I will step out in faith. Failure at 48 is even scarier than at 28. Christie has been an inspiration to me since I first saw her on a morning christian show and listening to Natalie has also given me inspiration to pursue my desire to help rescue the victims of Human Trafficking.
