Cornerstone Baptist Church partnered with the ministry of Tiny Hands International to help put a stop to this terrible injustice by committing to sponsor a Border Monitoring Station. These stations cost about $6,000 a year to operate and intercept trafficked children before they are forced into slavery.
On Sunday, Nov. 18, Cornerstone celebrated with Jon Andrews (director of Midwest Development for Tiny Hands) as the church presented Tiny Hands International with a check for more than $7,000.
This money was collected through various programs such as a Ladies Banquet, Vacation Bible School offering and even a Church Rummage Sale. The teens of Cornerstone collected more than half of this amount through a lock-in event called Project One.
This curriculum has been donated to Tiny Hands and will be used nationally to encourage other youth groups to join the cause to help put a stop to human trafficking.
