 BELYDIA'S

Mission

From our beginnings in 2016, our goal has been simple – to use our gifts of hospitality and service to build awareness about the evils of child sex trafficking. Through events, resources, and prayer, we encourage and equip people to recognize the red flags of human trafficking so they can prevent its devastating impact among their family, friends and communities.

Be a part of our

Powerful Events

Our role in the sex trafficking fight is to shine a light into the darkness through open communication and dialogue – which is why we regularly hold events for a variety of audiences.

BELYDIA GALA

Details on the 2021 Gala

will be shared

in the summer of 2020.

AWARENESS

Regular awareness gatherings for adults, featuring sexual assault survivors, family members of survivors, and sex trafficking experts.

OPEN HEARTS

Our youth prevention program

that aims to help young girls learn  how to stay safe & confident so they can find their purpose 

in Christ and use their

God-given gifts.

That’s from a 2016 University of Texas report. The hard reality is that sex traffickers do not discriminate. Anyone – no matter their background, upbringing, or neighborhood – can be targeted and manipulated by a pimp and become a victim of human trafficking. We need your help to save the lives of the boys and girls across Texas. Get involved with beLydia today.

Lydia was an

Entreprenuer

Lydia (Acts 16:14) was an entrepreneur. From our very first event in August 2016 where we shared awareness and hosted a marketplace of women vendors, we knew we needed to include women supporting women while fighting this evil atrocity.

Our Dynamic Devotionals

Combatting the hidden realities of the sex industry is spiritually and emotionally taxing. On our beLydia Blog, we provide helpful and uplifting devotionals that encourage your soul, including Bible verses, guided prayers, and Bible study tips.

 

We also use our blog to share awareness by telling stories and facts about sex trafficking, pornography & sextortion. We hope you will share them with your community and help us prevent this atrocity.

Lastly, we are a group of diverse women who love hospitality. We believe that the Lord gave us that passion and gifting for a reason: to make a difference in the world. We use it to host events and share awareness about child sex trafficking but we also use it to connect with friends, family & the community in order to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We definitely aren't perfect and struggle to find the balance between being a "Mary" and being a "Martha." We hope you're inspired by our success and learn from our mistakes (which there are many!).

Read uplifting scriptures about the blessings of God.

BIBLE VERSES

Our kids are being preyed upon and tricked into child sex trafficking, pornography & sextortion

The best way to PREVENT it is to be aware of what it is. We share facts & stories to create awareness.

CHILD SEX TRAFFICKING

Lydia (from Acts 16) was known for using her love of hospitality to show her faithfulness.  We are being faithful and using hospitality to prevent child sex trafficking.
