Trafficking

head-in-sand

My studies on women have led me to the unfortunate discovery of a hidden worldwide epidemic: human trafficking. If you’re like me, you once believed that our modern era had eradicated human slavery — at least in first world countries. But the truth is that there are more people enslaved today than there were in the 1800s. In fact, it is estimated that 27 million people are living a life of forced servitude. 27 million is the size of an average COUNTRY.

Many are sex slaves caught in the ever growing demand for prostitution and pornography. Most in the latter group are children and teenagers. Are you sick to your stomach yet? Don’t stick your head in sand. Don’t look away. Get educated. Make others aware. Force yourself to look and do something about it.

 

This is an example of the ministries I support to fight human trafficking. There is free video for you to view:

Stella’s House

Community Coalition Against Human Trafficking (You can google to find ministries & non-profits like this one in your local area to support.)

    This confirms the desire in me to pay attention to the moon and try to live the festivals accordingly. Otherwise the Holy Spirit is quenched and we become stagnant.
