Mercy Gate Ministries goal from inception, October 24th of 2017, was to restore individuals, redeem families, and break negative life cycles. We have worked to fulfill this mission by walking alongside those affected by sex trafficking, establishing strategic partnerships, and developing multiple community initiatives in 2019 for women and children.
We are a NOW MINISTRY who focuses on prevention and healing, who stands in the gap of the vulnerable, and who brings light into the darkness. Human Trafficking is slavery. It’s the illegal trade of human beings of all ages, including infants. It’s the recruitment, control, and use of people for their bodies and for their labor. Through force, fraud, and coercion, people everywhere are being bought and sold against their will–right now in the 21st century. There are millions of slaves in the world today. More than ever before in human history. Only 1% of victims are ever rescued.
But phrases like ‘slavery’ and ‘human trafficking’ can still feel ambiguous. This is the reality: slavery is violence. It’s physical, verbal, and sexual abuse. It’s forced prostitution. It’s barbaric working conditions. It's unacceptable. Slavery is more stoppable than ever, and that’s why we’re here, rallying our community to join the fight for freedom. This is a global issue, but it's local advocates like you who can make a difference in our community, our region, and throughout the state of Texas.
We are asking you to join our OPERATION FREEDOM efforts to join us in prayer for prevention and healing, take a pledge as a defender and protector, and participate as an advocate to share hope for Kerrville and surrounding communities throughout the State of Texas.
Mercy Gate Ministries is committed to restoring hope, releasing compassion and changing lives through prevention and healing. Our hope is that we will continue to operate as the leading agency in the region. To continue to be experts in the industry. To continue to partner with the community in efforts to invest and grow anti-human trafficking awareness and education. To continue to develop rescue teams and restoration programs. We need supporters like you to pray, pledge, and participate.
This is our heart and vision for OPERATION FREEDOM.
