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.”

Fake ID and church

A church camp is a great way to have fun and good time. In addition to learning more about religion, children will play different games and have fun in their free time. Team building games are especially popular in church camps. There are many games, and all of them are based on various topics - cartoons, comics, anime, tv-shows. One of the most popular team building camp games is called "Spies and Police". It is based on the following story: a gang of spies appears in the team, and the police together with civilians need to reveal all the spies. To let the players plunge into this atmosphere of espionage adventures, you can order fake ID characters for them. Children will be delighted, they will be happy to play this game and have fun.
