Stay With Me!
Friday, June 5, 2009 | 6:00 pm

Join Dr. Tony Campolo, Beyond Borders, and Calvary Baptist Church for an Evening of Hope for Haiti's "Stay-With" Slave Children.

Just a ninety-minute flight from the United States as many as 300,000 children are trapped in a life of slavery. They are called "stay-with" children because they live apart from their parents and stay with the families they serve. Many work every waking hour and face intense physical, psychological, and sexual abuse.

There is hope!

A small but growing movement in Haiti is working to protect these children, reunite them with their families, and bring an end to child servitude.

Come learn what they are doing and how you can help.

Our featured speaker, Dr. Tony Campolo, is a highly sought-after speaker, loved for his entertaining and compelling message. He is a sociologist, pastor, and author of 35 books.

Guests from Haiti include Helia Lajuenesse and Alina Cajuste, two survivors of child servitude who will speak of their experience and the struggle to end this practice.

Program:

6:00 p.m. Simple Supper in church hall
7:00 p.m. Main Program in the sanctuary, followed by a Dessert Reception

This event is free, but space is limited. So register now. Reserved sanctuary seating is available for groups of eight or more.

Calvary Baptist Church is located one block west of the Gallery Place / Chinatown Metro station at the corner of 8th and H streets, NW.

More information is available here.
