Monthly Ministry Update from Valerie Payne General Counsel’s Office

January 2013

Spotlight
Edition:
Faith
and
Law
Around
The
Globe
 Because
the
General
Counsel’s
Office
is
rather
new
to
you
–
and
to
me!
–
I
will
 focus
a
few
prayer
letters
this
year
highlighting
various
initiatives
our
in‐house
 counsel
team
has
created
that
are
making
a
difference
for
eternity.
 Besides
serving
the
day‐to‐day
needs
of
the
30+
unique
ministries
that
comprise
 the
world’s
largest
missions
organization,
Cru’s
General
Counsel’s
Office
is
on
a
 mission
of
its
own:
to
train
and
influence
the
broader
legal
community.
 Next
month,
I’ll
highlight
our
legal
intern
program,
which
targets
the
rising
 generation
of
lawyers.
This
month
I
want
to
feature
Faith
and
Law
Around
the
 Globe
(FLAG),
which
is
a
flagship
(yes,
pun
intended)
discipleship
program
 birthed
by
the
dream
of
one
of
our
in‐house
counsel,
Bob
Trierweiler.
 Bob’s
dream
for
FLAG
is
the
spiritual
refreshment
and
growth
of
the
current
 generation
of
attorneys,
judges,
and
other
legal
professionals
–
from
all
nations.
 To
that
end,
FLAG
hosted
its
first
international
conference
in
2008
in
Berlin,
 Germany.
Through
engaging
speakers,
breakout
sessions,
and
deep
fellowship,
 the
conference
taught
its
diverse
attendees
how
to
live
a
more
productive
and
 balanced
life
empowered
 by
the
Holy
Spirit.
 Building
off
the
success
 of
the
Berlin
conference,
 plans
are
brewing
for
the
 2013
conference
to
take
 place
in
Hong
Kong
on
 April
4‐8.
 Because
most
of
you
 know
my
background
of
 extensive
research
and
 advocacy
on
anti‐human
trafficking
issues,
I’d
like
to
share
an
exciting
prayer
 request
about
the
upcoming
FLAG
conference
in
Hong
Kong.


Prayer Corner √ Support Update: Pray for God’s perfect timing in completing my support team so I can start at HQ! √ Special Need in February: Pray for a safe, reliable, affordable option to replace my car. √ Praise Report: Thank God for the opportunity and privilege of speaking to the entire Regent Law school at their spiritual retreat on January 24. Update forthcoming!

Nefarious,
Merchant
of
Souls,
is
a
hard‐hitting
documentary
that
exposes
 disturbing
trends
in
modern
sex
slavery.
I
saw
the
film
last
year
at
its
debut.
 From
the
very
first
scene,
Nefarious
illustrates
the
nightmare
of
sex
slavery
that
 thousands
of
women
and
children
experience
daily.
It
features
unforgettable
 interviews
with
actual
victims
and
traffickers,
alongside
expert
analysis.
 The
FLAG
team
previewed
Nefarious
for
the
2013
conference
in
Hong
Kong.
 Currently,
there
are
legal
representatives
from
14
nations
–
and
counting
–

 who
will
attend.
Will
you
pray
for
wisdom
in
presenting
the
film
in
Hong
Kong,
 and
a
significant
response
from
the
audience?
As
leaders
in
the
community,
 the
lawyers
and
judges
attending
the
conference
are
uniquely
positioned
to
do
 something
about
the
atrocity
of
human
trafficking.
Imagine
the
impact!
