Natasha Speaks at the Gathering of Toronto Baptist Women

On Saturday, Oct. 19, 2013, at the invitation of the leadership, Natasha Turlac spoke at the gathering of Baptist Women of Ontario and Quebec (Canada) held at Immanuel Baptist Church, Toronto. Natasha was invited to do a presentation on ministry to women - victims of human trafficking. This issue, it seems, receives more attention of Christian women worldwide.

During her presentation, Natasha shared a story of how she became interested in this ministry. She said, “Moldova, the land where I was born, is a number one country - exporter of women for slave labor and sex trade. However, the society over there refused to admit the existence of the problem. The issue of trafficking is simply ignored.”

Natasha shared that the goal of Turlac Mission is to (1) do preventive work among teens by providing them information about dangers of trafficking, (2) help women-victims of human trafficking by providing Christian counselling, food baskets, training and tools for making a living (sewing machines, cooking supplies, etc.) and (3) connecting them to the local community of believers that will be able to support them spiritually until their lives are completely restored with God’s help.
