heart broken

my heart is breaking. i have been researching human trafficking and the sex trade for a few weeks. i just literally got sick to my stomach...

  • 32 billion dollars is made every year off the bodies of young girls & women in sex trafficking. --International Labor Organization
  • Over 12 million people worldwide are trafficked for forced labor or sexual exploitation. --United Nations
  • 80 % are female and 50 % are children…the majority are forced into the commercial sex trade. --United States, Department of State
  • Modern-day slavery is said to be the second largest criminal industry in the world. --Polaris Project

IT'S NOT OK. but God reminds us: Can plunder be retrieved from a giant, prisoners of war gotten back from a tyrant? But God says, "Even if a giant grips the plunder and a tyrant holds my people prisoner, I'm the one who's on your side, defending your cause, rescuing your children. --Isaiah 49:25 (The Message)

God's power gives us hope that through Him, all can be saved.

John 1:16
