82nd Avenue Prayer Walk

Well, they did it! On Independence Day, members of Gathering 242 Summit Fellowship walked and prayed the full length of Northeast 82nd Avenue in Portland, one of the most active streets for the sex trade in the Northwest.

Feet for Freedom

The reason was because Sarah, one of the members or G242, decided that the best way to celebrate her birthday was to give to somebody else. She chose the victims of sex-trafficking because there was no safe place for the adult victims to go to make their escape. So far she has raised about half of her goal of $3500.00 by walking to help The House of Engedi* prepare to receive refugees from the mean streets of Portland.
