Human trafficking is happening all over the world. Children are powerless against it. It happens quickly and sometimes the parents are not aware that predators are near them plotting to steal their child. What a wanton destruction of multitudes of precious young people. They are born and kidnapped to become sexual slaves to wicked men and earn money. These sex slaves must weep an ocean of tears but no one hears them and no one rescues them.
163,000,000 children in our world are orphans. Some of them are fortunate to be in an orphanage, no one can count the number of the children on the streets who will be picked up and join the numbers of human trafficking, or have their organs sold to the West.
I will never forget one boy on the street who responded to my “What is your name?” He said: “I am no name, no birthday, no mother or father, no home. I am no none.” At some time he will not be on the streets, because he is vulnerable to the trafficking of young children.
The Bible expresses the plight of the sex slaves, and the plight of the just and unjust use of power. More leaders need the compassion this leader expressed as he saw people being crushed by oppressive power. He said:
“Again I looked and saw all the oppression that was taking place under the sun. I saw the tears of the oppressed and they have no comforter; power was on the side of their oppressors – and they have no comforter.”
Ecclesiastes 4:1 and 2
When you step into the world of human trafficking you have to be brave. It is beyond any thing you can imagine. If you are compassionate, you will weep and not sleep. Imagine the grief, sorrow, fear, agony and pain for a young “fresh” their term, young girl who has not known the sexual world, and not knowing that the pedophiles may murder their victims.
God our Father in heaven has touched this child before anyone else has. He put His tapestry on the child, their DNA color of the eyes and the beauty of the face, and an evil man is plundering what God has created.
The money is BIG according to the European Union; $32 billion annually and enslaves 30 million people, half of them are children. Some pimps who have five sex slaves will make one million dollars a year.
We should seek what the root of this deplorable evil is, to wage war on behalf of the children. We have broken God’s laws, we are murdering children in the womb. The government encourages young women who are pregnant to have an abortion. If indeed we are doing this in buildings in every city, it would make sense that babies who live can be hunted down like animals for sex slaves to make money. As a nation we need to repent. America has aborted 53 million babies since the Roe v. Wade decision in l973.
We can not turn our backs on these facts; Jesus taught us that children are just like the kingdom of heaven. He said: “Learn of me.” Listen to Him. “Whoever welcomes a little child like this in my name welcomes Me.” If any causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a large millstone hung around his neck and be drowned in the depths of the sea.
America does not do due justice to the men who are plundering our children. When they are caught they may have some jail time. They are let out of jail and given a house to live in a community. They have a probation officer who checks on them. However the next true story proves that the system failed.
An 11 year old girl was with her family and a couple stopped and started talking with the mother and father. They did not notice that the woman had started talking to their daughter and luring her into the back of the van. Quickly, the couple left and the parents realized that they had their daughter. Inside, they were congratulating themselves about how easy it was to steal this 11 year old daughter. They had a wicked plan for her.
This young girl tried to bargain with the couple and told them that her mother and dad would give them money. However, she was put into the backyard in tents and sheds which were locked; she was there for 18 years being raped continually and he would tell her that raping her stopped him from going to get another girl. She birthed two baby girls.
These kidnappers managed to hide her when the federal parole agency came to the house. They must have seen the electric wires going to the sheds because they visited sixty times to make sure this kidnapper was keeping the rules. This is unbelievable 18 years.
America knows this young woman because she was interviewed on T.V. She was very brave to have done so. The kidnappers are in prison for the rest of their lives.
God’s people need to take responsibility for the welfare of the children in their family and community. We must work to change the law regarding pedophiles. They do not deserve to live in a community where the children live.
Hundreds of God’s people are working hard with the lost children around the globe. In Arad, Romania they voted in a pastor for their mayor. He immediately went to work to get the street children off the streets especially at night. They built small wood huts with bunk beds. They also paid women to be the “mothers” to look after these children. It worked!
Lee Saville, a lawyer from London, moved to Romania to take care of the children. This man of compassion dedicated himself to these children on the streets. He knew everyone on the streets and knew when they were missing; he would find them.
Lee opened a baby house, then toddler house and he had houses for all ages. When the boys became older he purchased a farm so the boys would learn to keep pigs, chickens, and plant wheat. Romania is his home.
Lee was told that young women were leaving the villages. He investigated and learned that a man was talking to the young women about getting jobs as nannies in London. However, they took their passports away when they got to London; they lived in cages only to steal every day and to become sex slaves at night. They were beaten if they did not make enough money. Most came home again to Romania. Thank God for people who leave everything and follow JESUS.
Lee is opening schools to educate these children who have been forgotten and not taught. A corporation is trucking in classrooms to them and putting them up. It is time to educate the Gypsy children who are so smart.
All good people find child trafficking very confusing and extremely sad. We would not think of harming a child. What can parents do to keep their children safe? Working together to educate parents and teenagers we can make a difference
We have to engage our community, because we do not know every child on our streets. It is easy to know the children on your street however; you can have a lemonade stand on a hot day and introduce yourself and get to know them. Create a safe place for them and meet their parents.
Know where the pedophiles live in your community. Go to your police station and get this information. Know what is going on. You might see something that needs to be reported.
A woman in Berkeley , Ca. watched men struggling to hold a roll of carpet. However, she saw a human leg sticking out of the carpet. They were trying to push it in the van and trying to get a young women to get in the van also. She stopped a car and asked the driver to call the police immediately. She had no idea that the girl in the carpet was already dead and the other young women would probably not be seen again. She saved the girls life by being proactive.
Here are some of the necessary things to do.
There is an epidemic of purchasing of children for sex in America. The children come in by ship, plane, train and car. The evil men involved in this use the internet to show pictures of their victims. This enables the pedophiles to bid on these children and some will bid one thousand dollars for one girl. These evil men form a corporation and the internet is their tool. They connect outside the city, their victims are in a van and they get the money. This is one way they are getting enormous amounts of money.
Another way they manipulate, trick and coerce girls is to use the “boy friend” approach of acting interested in a romantic relationship. They chat, especially teens, and tell them how beautiful they are. Then the talk about getting a burger. It goes like this: “We do not want to go to McDonald’s my cousin has got a great restaurant, so how about it?” Yeah! She is in the car, the men who will have sex with this victim are waiting in a room attached to the restaurant. She was clueless. She calls for help, the men laugh and it goes on for hours. Her so called “boy friend” tells her that he took photo’s of her with the men so she better not tell her parents.” He will drop her at her house, or maybe to another place where men are waiting again.
I have wept as I read as much I could about this terrible exploitation for commercial purposes with our children. Tweet everyone about this book so they join us in the war against human trafficking of children.
