I recently watched a documentary called "nefarious." It's done by the group Exodus Cry and it's about the TRUTH of Human Sex Trafficking. It broke my heart, the kind of broken that makes you stop and say "this needs to stop and I need to do something about it!" I know that I'm not equipped (yet) to go into these countries and try to single-handed rescue these girls, boys, women...I'm 5'1 and 103 lbs, it would be foolish. However I do feel a calling on my life, and my families life to be directly involved. Whether giving money, or maybe even some day joining exodus cry. I know that I can't do nothing, and my husband agrees with me 100%.
As a mother the thought of these children and women being ripped from their homes, away from their families is heart wrenching...worse though is the very real hurt the girls whose parents sell them must feel. I can't comprehend how a parent could choose to sell their girls. This post could easily stretch out and be extremely wordy, but you know...I'm not going to do that. I am going to strongly suggest that you go to www.exoduscry.com and check out their blog. I also strongly suggest that you watch nefarious, they have it for sale at exoduscry.com and all proceeds go to combating human trafficking. We can do something!! Raising awareness and learning the facts is just the beginning. I've started a pin board on pinterest.com called NOT FOR SALE, I figure that if even one person looks at the board and starts doing research then that's one more person who can make a difference.
This is not a hopeless cause! I have a big God who does BIG things, and I believe that HE can put a stop to this.
DEAR HEAVENLY FATHER,
I PRAY FOR THE THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE WHO ARE VICTIMS OF SEX TRAFFICKING. I PRAY THAT YOU HOLD THEM IN YOUR HANDS AND COMFORT THEM. LORD, I PRAY FOR THE MEN INVOLVED, CHANGE THEIR HEARTS FATHER. LET THEM SEE YOU, AND LET THEM SEE THAT WHAT THEY'RE DOING IS WRONG. HELP THEM REALIZE THAT ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD IS NOT WORTH WHAT THEY ARE PUTTING THESE VICTIMS THROUGH. I PRAY FOR THE "JOHNS" WHO PAY FOR THE SERVICES OF THESE WOMEN THROUGH PROSTITUTION OR ESCORTS, CHANGE THEIR MINDSET GOD. I KNOW THAT YOU CAN PUT AN END TO THIS HORRIFIC PRACTICE,I PRAY THAT PEOPLE WILL WANT TO GET INVOLVED IN PUTTING AN END TO THIS. THANK YOU FOR BEING A BIG GOD, WHO HAS NOT LIMITATIONS.
