The Passion conference raises over $3 million to battle human trafficking

The Passion 2013 conference, a four-day gathering of 60,000 university students, wrapped up last Friday with attendees donating over $3 million to fund the freedom fight for the 27 million human slaves currently trapped in the trenches of captivity.

Let’s review that again: Total given: $3,327,658!!!

The Christian Post detailed the results of the event:

Passion founder Louie Giglio and his wife, Shelley, shared an update on the “End It Movement” initiative to stop modern-day slavery and they expressed amazement at the students’ generosity.

“You guys are absolutely crazy people,” Giglio said. “I don’t know who counted you out, but they really underestimated the power of your generation.”

In his closing message Friday morning, Giglio issued a charge for students to “live for Jesus and free the captive,” exhorting them to take what happened in their hearts and inside the walls of the Georgia Dome and carry it into the world. “You would have to be clueless and utterly blind not to realize that this is all about Jesus,” said Giglio. “Let our lives explode today for Jesus’ sake.”

Life changing generosity…don’t allow the government, the atheist, the naysayers or anyone else make you feel alone as a Christian, that God is not working or that you work is insignificant.

Amazing.
