Defend Dignity - End Prostitution and Human Trafficking - in the Southeast!

2014 10 terri wiebe

Terri Wiebe who stopped by the AM1250 Studio this morning to talk about the "Defend Dignity" event that is taking place in Steinbach on Sunday, November 2nd, 6:00 pm at the Emmanuel Evangelical Free Church.

We may not think it's happening here, we may not want to talk about it, but we know now that it IS happening here and young people need us to become more aware and hopefully once we are, help make the situation better. "Defend Dignity" is a justice initiative of the Christian and Missionary Alliance of Canada. They are coming to bring multiple presenters to speak on the topic of human trafficking and sexual exploitation. In Canada the most common end point of that is prostitution. There is lots to know and we need to be aware to do our best to keep those who are most vulnerable - safe. Take a listen to Terri's conversation with AM1250's Michelle Sawatzky to get the whole story.  Thank you Terri.

Dennis Krahn is asking us all to Give the Gift of Life.

2014 10 dennis krahn

Dennis Krahn is asking this because he has been a recipient of blood that has been given many, many times. 9 years ago, Dennis was diagnosed with a chronic form of leukemia. His white blood cells attack the red blood cells in his body and he needs a tranfusion every time to build them back up. Since that time, he's had about 35 transfusions and 21 of them have been in the last 10 months. Without that blood, Dennis wouldn't be alive. So, he knows, first hand that giving blood saves lives. You can hear his whole story as he shared it with AM1250's Michelle Sawatzky in the AM1250 Audio Vault. Thank you Dennis for encouraging us to give!! Blood -- it's in us to give!!
