You Shall Know The truth And The Truth Shall Set You free.
The Month Of February is
CAMPAIGN FOR TEEN DATING VIOLENCE
To everyone who is involved or wants to be involved with the xtrememeasure.com “Voice of Hope”
We are beginning 2012, with a new look on www.xtrememeasure.com . We also have a new group of Administrators/ Leaders who are currently being trained to begin groups in their own towns, cities even countries. In a separate letter we will acknowledge each person. For now I would like for you to ask yourself,” What I am doing for the group?” Can I be a leader? Do I have the time to be a leader? And if I can’t then what am I willing to do? Every day there are many small things that which you can do. Which in my second letter, I will write a list of the things that you can do for this cause on a daily, monthly, and yearly cause.
Tyrone Lowe is one of our leaders, you can find out more about him at http://xtrememeasure.com/tyrone.htm.
He is currently working on an anthem for xtrememeasure.com with some artist. He will also be working on most of the events, television programs and radio programs that are up and coming.
We have always as a group recognized the different awareness’s that happens on a monthly basis. If you don’t know what is going on every month,
May I suggest that you go to this page http://www.xtrememeasure.com/awareness.htm
Last month we started our first wear white campaign for Human Trafficking National Awareness Month.
In February we will be working on our Red and Purple Campaign. EVENT TO JOIN!
You may be asking, “What is the Red and Purple campaign you may ask? “
First February is, Dating Violence Abuse Prevention Week February 6-12.
Teen dating violence is no different than any other domestic violence, or even human trafficking. Someone is controlling someone, with some kind of force, whether in words, or physical force or manipulation they all are the same in my eyes.
The color purple aim is to break the silence and break the cycle in
order to save lives. To provide basic needs assistance, advocacy and
supportive care for children, men and woman. To provide development and
distribution of resources that advocate for ongoing public prevention,
awareness and education efforts to stop all kinds of abuse. The purple
ribbon has become a symbol of remembrance for those who have lost their
lives to a person they once trusted and loved. The color red is
recognizing that love as something precious and special. Not something
that literally makes you bleed.
Here is what we want you to do in the month of February.EVENT TO JOIN!
1. Either by yourself or with a group, wear red or purple take a picture and place it up on your twitter, face book, or MySpace or any social networking you are involved with and then on your status write Dating Violence Abuse Prevention Week February 6-12, will you be willing to share this on your wall for one week, and wear red or purple with a group or just yourself, and place your picture up and let people know that you are willing to help those who don’t have a voice and they no longer need to be alone.
2. Place quotes, pictures, stories and share it with five others that are your friends. Let people know you support the cause.
Place up the phone number,
5. We are also in need of youth prayer events, as well as our general population. Every Wednesday from 6 to 6 pm we are taking that day as a day to fast and pray. For the month of February, we will focusing on our youth and dating violence, also in my heart we need to pray about bullying. It is important that we in the church start doing more. I received an email by a pastor who sadly said,” I was the only Christian who has brought up Human Trafficking.” which is sad in my eyes. We want to mobilize prayer groups to take one day out of the month and organize a prayer day and also organize a bible study focused on abuse and Human trafficking. If that is all you do for this group you will be working against the forces of darkness that plague this world. Which without the prayer of the people we cannot fight against this horrible crime.
6. Last is getting schools, churches, and other organizations involved, see if a principle will allow an announcement about dating violence week. See if you can attempt to get an anti-violence program in the schools to educate the students. Churches see if you can get a group to pray once a month on the issues at hand, and have your own youth groups get involved. Or if you have a community center near you make a proposal to do something in your community on human trafficking and abuse.
Deuteronomy 15:7-11 “If among you, one of your brothers should become poor, in any of your towns within your land that the Lord your God is giving you, you shall not harden your heart or shut your hand against your poor brother, but you shall open your hand to him and lend him sufficient for his need, whatever it may be. Take care lest there be an unworthy thought in your heart and you say, ‘The seventh year, the year of release is near,’ and your eye look grudgingly on your poor brother, and you give him nothing, and he cry to the Lord against you, and you be guilty of sin. You shall give to him freely, and your heart shall not be grudging when you give to him, because for this the Lord your God will bless you in all your work and in all that you undertake. For there will never cease to be poor in the land. Therefore I command you, ‘You shall open wide your hand to your brother, to the needy and to the poor, in your land.’
Psalm 82:3 Give justices to the weak and the fatherless; maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute.
