Justice Restoration Center
The West Florida Center for Trafficking Advocacy, known as, the Justice Restoration Center (JRC) is a tax-exempt organization that exists to provide trauma-informed restorative pro bono legal services and advocacy for survivors of human trafficking, as well as to advocate on trafficking-related legislation and policy matters. The JRC features an alliance of legal professionals who provide free legal services for survivors, along with volunteer professionals, such as physicians, dentists, therapists, accountants, and others who are willing to assist at little or no cost to the survivor. There are tremendous needs for the survivors of human trafficking; such as healthcare, legal, mental health, spiritual and financial support. A survivor needs legal assistance expunging an undeserved criminal record. A single mom emerging from trafficking needs help obtaining public benefits while she works toward a new start. A labor trafficking survivor needs legal advocacy in the area of immigration. A trafficked prison inmate needs a safe release, transportation, and residential services. A survivor of sex-trafficking needs a branding tattoo removed to escape the stigma of her exploitation. These are just examples of the needs that the JRC sees among those who have survived sex and labor trafficking as they navigate a complex journey back to normal life.

The 6:4 Fellowship
Strategic Renewal is a para-Church ministry that exists to serve the local church and is characterized by an extraordinary commitment to the priority of prayer and the ministry of the word. In all they do, they underline the Scripture’s emphasis on healthy local-church leadership, the sufficiency of the Holy Spirit, and the pursuit of cultural transformation. They provide resources for spiritual and personal renewal, equip and mobilize churches to pray, and train pastors to lead the Church in prayer. Sadly, most churches in North America today are largely prayerless. The latest church research shows that the single greatest indicator of a healthy, thriving church is how much and how often the pastors and/or elders pray together. Yet, sadly, only 33% of pastors and/or elders are actually praying together within their own churches. On top of this, church attendance across America has decreased 12% in the last decade. In the last 15 years, $500 billion was spent on church growth efforts with no appreciable impact. Now more than ever, the church in North America is in critical need of Christian leaders, clergy and laypeople, who are committed to seeking God, proclaiming His word, and leading His people to experience the supernatural power of Christ.
My brothers, show no partiality as you hold the faith in our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory. For if a man wearing a gold ring and fine clothing comes into your assembly, and a poor man in shabby clothing also comes in, and if you pay attention to the one who wears the fine clothing and say, “You sit here in a good place,” while you say to the poor man, “You stand over there,” or, “Sit down at my feet,” have you not then made distinctions among yourselves and become judges with evil thoughts?..... What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead. James 2:1-4,14-17
…learn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression; bring justice to the fatherless, plead the widow's cause. Isaiah 1:17
Defend the weak and the fatherless; uphold the cause of the poor and the oppressed. Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked. Psalm 82:3-4
Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20
Jim and Janice Larson
Intensive Care Ministries
Jim and Janice Larson have been full-time missionaries in Tanzania since 2011. They are the Directors for all of Africa under Intensive Care Ministries (ICM), an international ministry based in California which pioneered a simple, but effective, inductive Bible study (IBS) program being used around the world. The ministry focus is to equip existing local churches by teaching their pastors, elders, and leaders how to read and interpret the Bible properly, as most have about an 8-10th grade education. Through the IBS seminars, they identify the best pastors from all denominations to be invited to enroll in the free, 2.5-year Bible college. These church leaders graduate with the equivalent of an A.A. Degree in Pastoral Ministry with an emphasis on preaching. Their ability to preach proper doctrine is contributing exponentially to spiritual growth and maturity. Prayer and financial support is always welcome and necessary. Spiritual warfare is great, as well as the financial need. In addition, Jim and Janice welcome visitors who can teach the Word, have musical gifts, and even a heart for ministry to youth and children, which is another big aspect of the work. Visits can be from 10-90 days.

As a teenager, she began serving in a Christian sports outreach program in Pinellas County, FL and as a worship leader at her church. In addition, she participated in many short-term mission trips and it was then that the Lord began to give her a passion for missions. While she was still a teenager, she already knew the Lord was calling her into full-time missions, but she waited on Him to show her where He wanted her to serve. The opportunity came the very week she graduated from university. The Lord opened a door for her to work with youth in the West Bank where she has currently been serving since 2015. It is extremely difficult for Jewish or Muslim converts to be Christians in this region as there is constant opposition from every side. There is also much segregation even among the various Christian groups. She works with youth from both Jewish and Muslim backgrounds as well as many international students to help promote unity among the body of Christ. She teaches, leads weekly youth groups, and helps organize several programs throughout the year that bring the kids together to show them how to serve and worship together as brothers and sisters in Messiah.

Before Christ, Pastor S. lived in chains of addiction. Dominated by drugs and alcohol, S. lost all hope. But his despair would not last forever. Soon, devoted Christians met him and shared the salvation message. S. received Christ and God radically transformed his life. He soon received a call to the ministry. Today, Pastor S. is hard at work for Laos’ salvation. Through the decades, S. has planted churches in many Laotian villages, winning hundreds to Jesus Christ and introducing many to the call of God. His calling as a church planter continues today. He serves as a spiritual leader at multiple church plants, preaching at his main congregation two Sundays a month, and at other congregations the other two. But now, he’s also investing in the next generation of Laotian church planters by serving as pastor to ten church-planters around Laos. Pastor S. also acts as the guardian and spiritual leader of a home for persecuted Christian children. The Laos Children’s Home provides food, shelter, care, education and discipleship for 16 Laotian children who have been forbidden from village schools. God has powerfully used Pastor S’ labor of love to strengthen these child disciples and save many village families. Many of the children in Laos Children’s home will likely grow to enter Bible school and pursue Christian ministry. Pastor S. is driven by a heavenly zeal to disciple young people who can reach all of Asia. MM Partner David S. revealed S’s heart — “S. Knows that one day he will get old, but if he reaches the current generation, they can reach the generation after him.” One day he hopes to open a ministry training center in Laos.
FSC is currently supporting one of six Balinese mobile pastors who each travel across the island sharing the love of God in villages. They also have started house groups and are pastor new Believers along the way. This method of church planting has been highly effective in seeing Balinese people turn to Christ and worship together in their own cultural context.
Pray for them as they face spiritual and practical hurdles.
