Please join us in welcoming our new ACT Against Child Trafficking Directors. These two very talented ladies have a heart for Human Trafficking survivors and for Pueblo. They have agreed to co-lead this ministry and will make an amazing addition to our team. We are excited to have you on board ladies!
“My name is Carmella Lujan. I am a person of many interests and hobbies. Among these include photography and travel, along with volunteer work of any sort and helping out with the Children’s ministry at my church. (Pueblo West Church of Christ). I am active in foreign mission work and desire to teach English overseas one day. I love God,and am passionate about partnering with Him to serve His people! Within this past year, the Lord has challenged me to respond and become active in living out Micah 6:8 on behalf of Human Trafficking victims. I believe that becoming an advocate and playing a small role in whatever form is what God requires,and will start change to take shape. I am excited to see how God will use this ministry,and am thankful to take part in something so big.”
“My name is Jessica Bates. I was raised in California and moved to Pueblo last November so my husband and I could work with the church of Christ in Pueblo West. We have two small children, Josiah who will be three in September and Abby who recently turned one. My husband and I met while doing mission work in China, I lived there for two years. While overseas missions is a passion of mine and something I would love to return to, I also see the need to spread the love of Christ to the people in my community right where I am. The problem of human trafficking both here and abroad is something I have become passionate about and now that I find myself settled in an area where there is a need for advocates and action I feel it has been put on my heart to do something about it. I look forward to doing the work God has set before us in Pueblo. I pray that the opportunities and means to accomplish good works in His name is given to us so that we can begin to set things right on Earth as it is in Heaven.”
