First Presbyterian to host human-trafficking speaker

GREENSBURG – Presbyterian Women will hold its “Praise and Thank Service” at 10:30 a.m., Nov. 24. The women of the church lead the service and have invited L. Nadine Hill, founder and executive director of Ecumenical Women’s Coalition Against Human Trafficking (EWCA), to present the message, entitled “Purchased: An Unbelievable Product!” on the important subject of human trafficking.

Human trafficking, “it is happening in the school yard, at the mall, on a downtown street, a country road, a large city, a medium city, a small town, a rural town, your own street, your school, your church, your own backyard.” The goals of EWCA are: to provide training to inform and educate; to help to identify and rescue victims; and to build and support, in every facet, safe houses for rescued, sex-trafficked girls under age 18.

Nadine’s message, “Purchased: An Unbelievable Product!” will answer questions (e.g., What does trafficking look like? Who is being trafficked? Who are the traffickers? What can Christian women do to help stop this worldwide crime upon society?).

Nadine has partnered with the Center for Global Impact (who do amazing work with rescued, trafficked women and women at risk, as well as their daughters in Cambodia) and Partners for Just Trade (a PC (USA) mission). She has a “trunk show,” wherein she sells products these people produce by hand or on simple sewing machines. Trunk show proceeds are used to operate administratively. All direct donations go to the Safe House Build Fund. The trunk show will be open until 1 p.m., Nov. 24.

Nadine is a widow, mother, grandmother and religious leader in the Presbytery of Whitewater Valley and the Synod of Lincoln Trails of the Presbyterian Church (USA). She attended Indiana Business College and Butler University. Nadine, who retired in February 2009, has been involved with church work and volunteerism more than 45 years. An ordained elder and deacon, she’s currently the Presbyterian Women Moderator of the Synod of Lincoln Trails and has served in many positions of Presbyterian Women on the local-church, Presbytery and Synod levels. She is a member of Second Presbyterian Church, Indianapolis, the Indiana Historical Society, and Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR). In February 2012, she founded the Ecumenical Women’s Coalition Against Human Trafficking, which focuses on sex trafficking of young girls under age 18.
