Covenant World Relief is partnering with a new ministry in Mexico called “Ministering to the Abused and Exploited of Mexico (MAEM).” Recently, MAEM gave a presentation to the Tequix quiac Covenant Church on the prevention of childhood sexual abuse. David Husby, the Covenant World Relief Director and three other US Hispanic leaders, had the privilege to work with the MAEM to share ministry concerns, activities, and goals. The all-day conference about human trafficking had about sixty people from the Mexico City metropolitan area and surrounding states. There was a good representation of the young population there at the conference as well. The teaching was received well by the people and they are hoping for more presentations like it. The people enjoyed the Biblical perspective on abuse and exploitation given by Dr. Boaz Johnson, a professor of Biblical and Theological Studies at North Park University in Chicago who advocates for human trafficking and global slavery awareness.
