Intern profile: Elizabeth Menge. An abolitionist taking leaps of faith.

abcLast summer, while most college kids were earning a little extra spending money for the school year and sleeping the morning away, Elizabeth Menge was in Thailand. Like many that go overseas, she made new friends and learned new things. She made friends with girls working in the red light district as prostitutes. She learned about international sex trafficking.

“What I saw wrecked my world,” Menge said.

This summer, Menge is doing something else that is entirely new. She packed up her things again and travelled from Madison, Wisconsin to Greenville, North Carolina to intern with Restore One and learn about human trafficking on the domestic level. Menge has committed to two and a half months with Restore One without an income and has a gofundme page where other freedom fighters can help Menge with her calling.

“A fire of passion has been stirred in me to see justice in the form of freedom, love, and joy in the hearts of the sons and daughters who feel abandoned, used, and worthless,” she said.

Menge studies sociology and global health at the University of Wisconsin.  She hopes to get a graduate degree in counseling to work closely with victims of sex trafficking. At Restore One, Menge works on prevention and education within the community.

Menge’s desire for trafficking victims is that they would, “claim the immensity of their worth in Christ.”
Fun facts:

•Her dream? To see dry bones dance now (Ezekiel 37).

•She loves to craft and thrift.

•She is a high school ministry leader at her church.
