If you are interested in being a part of the team in some capacity, please contact Laura at LauraAranda@OWLofHope.com with your interest, availability, background, and credentials.
Please pray for Laura as she spreads the message of hope for families and victims of human trafficking. Laura is available to speak at any venue across the nation and the world. Below are the current training options available now:
1. What is human trafficking? Defining who they are and what they look for. Statistics available. 2. Internet safety. How to remain safe and keep your children safe online as well. 3. Pornography and Sex Trafficking. Why these two go hand in hand in destroying America. 4. Laws, government and ways to get involved in being a voice for tougher laws against criminals caught. 5. Self-defense. Guidelines on being in public and staying aware of your surroundings. 6. Emotional healing and restoration to Christ through the hands of your church family.
