Spencerville Church member, Amanda Rodriguez, was recognized during Baltimore County Day, February 12, for her work as an expert in the field of human trafficking.

Amanda serves as the Chief Program Officer at TurnAround, Inc., where she oversees the anti-trafficking unit and assists in the administration of the agency. Amanda is also a member of the Maryland Human Trafficking Task Force.

We pray that God will continue to use her to be an advocate for those who have no voice.
