Missionaries Making an Impact Across the Globe
Meet Lauran Bethell. Lauran is a global consultant for human trafficking. Her main goal is to encourage new grassroots projects addressing the exploitation and abuse of women and children, many of whom are victims of trafficking.
Lauran serves on the Anti-Trafficking Committee of the European Baptist Federation and on the boards of Make Way Partners and Justice and Care. She has collaborated with governmental agencies, non-government organizations and a spectrum of faith-based groups. She has testified before the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate committees as they drafted and revised U.S. anti-trafficking legislation.
In 2005, Lauran was honored with the Human Rights Award of the Baptist World Alliance, and in 2009 she was awarded a Doctorate of Humane Letters from Palmer Seminary for her “longstanding and focused ministry of justice and compassion.”
