I used to think that there were 27-million slaves in our world. It turns out that I was wrong. According to the best estimates, there are actually 29.8-million. This is really disturbing because it means that we’re losing the fight against a great evil; we’re simply unable to keep up with those who would seek to profit from the sale of human lives. Many of those slaves are children who have been sold into prostitution.

Thankfully, there are some who have been rescued. Chong Kim, who is a survivor of human trafficking and sexual exploitation, inspired the Hollywood film, Eden, starring Jamie Chung, Beau Bridges, and Matt O’Leary. Chong was trafficked throughout the US, including Greensboro, North Carolina, from the age of 19 to her mid 20′s. Today, she is dedicated to raising awareness and empowering other victims of human trafficking by publicly sharing her story. We are honored and excited to have had Chong Kim speak at the 2014 Stand for Freedom Gala.

Pictured here are a few highlights of World Relief’s Stand for Freedom Gala, which was hosted by Katie Nordeen, anchor/reporter for WGHP News. Nordeen is seen here speaking with Andrew Timbie & Joe McCann, Director of the World Relief High-Point regional office and Coordinator of Church Involvement, respectively.

Also seen here is Patti Hricinak Sheets: Artist and teacher.
Patti is an artist and teacher residing in Greensboro, NC. She specializes in painting, drawing, and creating art at live events. Her mission is to “create visuals with purpose of story, emotion, and contrast.” Patti created this amazing work of art in about an hour during our event.

Hayden & Lee, a folk/new grass band, were also featured. North Carolina based Singer/Songwriters Hayden Cooke and Lee Coltrane have been playing together in various forms for the past five years. Together they produce a modern take on folk and blue grass that is inspired by the likes of Avett Brothers, Doc Watson, and Reliant K.
